Which describes the relationship between the tilt of Earth’s axis and the abundance of life on Earth?
a) The tilt of Earth’s axis does not influence its ability to support life because all planets are tilted on their axis.
b) Because Earth is tilted at a 23.5 degree angle from the Sun, it is able to support an abundance of life.
c) The tilt of Earth’s axis allows for there to be 365 days a year, and this contributes to the abundance of life on Earth.
d) The Earth’s axis is tilted in such a way that the sun’s light is blocked from entering the Earth. Otherwise it would burn.

Which planet is known for its frozen ice caps, a unique mixture of breathable gases, and contains liquid water at most of its temperatures?
a) Jupiter
b) Mars
c) Earth
d) Uranus

How does Earth’s distance from the Sun contribute to its ability to support an abundance of life?
a) It allows the vast majority of Earth's surface to be at the right temperatures necessary to support life.
b) Its distance from the Sun prevents it heats from affecting its atmosphere.
c) Its distance from the Sun makes it warm enough that heat never leaves its atmosphere.
d) Its distance from the Sun prevents remnants of meteors and asteroids from ever intruding on Earth's atmosphere.

What role do rotation and revolution play in determining day and night?
a) Earth makes 1 complete revolution around the Sun every 24 hours, and completes a full rotation once every 365 days.
b) The Sun makes 1 complete revolution around Earth every 24 hours, and completes a full rotation on its axis every 365 day
c) Earth makes 1 complete rotation on its axis every 24 hours, and completes a full revolution around the Sun every 365 day
d) The Sun makes 1 complete rotation on its axis every 24 hours, and completes a full revolution around Earth every 365 days.

As Jennifer is rides home from school with her mom, she notices that the sun appears to be move in the direction that her mom is driving. How is this best explained?
a) The pull of gravity makes it seems as if the Sun is moving, when neither Sun nor Earth are moving.
b) The Sun rotates on it axis as its moves closer to Earth.
c) Earth rotates on its axis as it makes it journey around the Sun.
d) The car her mom is driving is so full of horsepower that it is moving the Sun.

How does a 4 gram sample of copper compare to a 12 gram sample?
a) They have the same volume and mass but different density.
b) It has the same density but a different mass and volume.
c) The 12 gram sample has three times the mass, volume, and density of the 4 gram sample.
d) The 4 gram sample has 33 percent of the density of the 12 gram sample.

Which is an example of a chemical change?
a) Water freezes and turns to ice.
b) A paper is shredded into tiny pieces.
c) A banana rots from being exposed to too much air.
d) Steam rises from a pot of boiling water.

How is conduction different from convection?
a) Convection transfers cool air, while conduction transfers warm air.
b) Conduction transfers cool air, while convection transfers warm air.
c) Convection is the transfer of heat from one object touching another, while conduction is the transfer of heat through liquid.
d) Conduction is the transfer of heat from one object touching another, while convection is the movement of heat through liquid.

How is energy transferred from the Sun to the Earth?
a) through sound waves.
b) through air currents
c) through electromagnetic waves.
d) through compressional waves.

Which best describes the relationship between the temperature of a material and electromagnetic radiation?
a) Materials generally become warmer through the absorption of light, because light when absorbed emits heat.
b) Materials generally become warmer through the reflection of light because light when reflected emits heat.
c) Materials generally become warmer through the transmission of light, because light when transmitted emits heat.
d) Materials generally become warmer through the absorption, reflection and transmission of light because they all emit heat.
