Alignment to Standards for DC

1 SC.1.2.1. Recognize and explain that water, rocks, soil, and living organisms are found on the Earths surface.
1 SC.1.4. Different types of plants and animals inhabit the Earth.
2 SC.2.6. Plants and animals have structures that serve different functions in growth, survival, and reproduction.
2 SC.2.6.1. visible, external features of plants and animals and describe how these features help them live in different environments.
2 SC.2.7. Living things depend on one another and their environment for survival.
2 SC.2.7.4. materials in nature, such as grass, twigs, sticks, and leaves, can be recycled and used again, sometimes in different forms, as birds do in making their nests.
2 SC.2.8. Many different types of plants and animals inhabit the Earth.
2 SC.2.8.1. living things are found almost everywhere in the world in habitats such as the oceans, rivers, rain forests, mountain ranges, arctic tundra, farms, cities, and other environments. Recognize that some habitats are extreme, such a
2 SC.2.9.1. people are more like one another than they are like other animals. Each type of animal is more like its relatives (family) than it is like the animals of other types (or families).
2 SC.2.9.2. Explain that humans, like all living things, reproduce offspring of their own kind.
3 SC.3.5. Plants/animals classified by the physical characteristics that they share.
3 SC.3.5.1. living things can be sorted into groups in many ways using various properties, such as how they look, where they live, and how they act, in order to decide which things belong to which group.
3 SC.3.5.2. Explain that characteristics used for classification depend on the purpose of the grouping.
3 SC.3.6. Plants and animals have predictable life cycles.
3 SC.3.6.1. Recognize that plants and animals go through predictable life cycles that include birth, growth, development, reproduction, and death.
3 SC.3.6.2. Describe the life cycle of some living things, such as the frog and butterfly, including how they go through striking changes of body shape and function as they go through metamorphosis.
3 SC.3.6.3. Compare and contrast how life cycles vary for different living things.
4 SC.4.7.1. Explain that organisms interact with one another in various ways, such as providing food, pollination, and seed dispersal.
4 SC.4.7.7. Explain how in all environments, organisms grow, die, and decay, as new organisms are produced by the older ones.
5 SC.5.8. Many characteristics of an organism are inherited from the parents, but others result from the influence of the environment.
5 SC.5.8.2. List some characteristics of plants and animals that are fully inherited (e.g., form of flower, shape of leaves) and others that are affected by the climate or environmental conditions (e.g., browning of leaves from too much sun, language spoken).
5 SC.5.9. Adaptations in physical structure or behavior may improve an organismês chance for survival.
5 SC.5.9.1. in any particular environment, some kinds of plants and animals survive well, some do not survive as well, and some cannot survive at all.
5 SC.5.9.7. Recognize that some behaviors are instinctive (turtles burying their eggs) and others learned (wolfês hunting skills).
