4 SC-04-3.4.1a compare the different structures and functions of plants and animals that contribute to the growth, survival and reproduction of the organisms;
4 SC-04-3.4.1b make inferences about the relationship between structure and function in organisms. Each plant or animal has structures that serve different functions in growth, survival and reproduction. For example, humans have distinct body structures for walking
4 SC-04-3.4.2 Students will understand that things in the environment are classified as living, nonliving and once living. Living things differ from nonliving things. Organisms are classified into groups by using various characteristics (e.g., body coverings, body stru
4 SC-04-4.7.1a patterns of evidence related to the survival and reproductive success of organisms in particular environments.
4 SC-04-4.7.1b Distinct environments support the lives of different types of organisms.
4 SC-4-ET-U-1 ecosystems are defined by the relationships that occur within them. These relationships can be determined through observation of the organisms and their environment.
4 SC-4-I-S-1 cause and effect relationships existing between organisms and their environments
4 SC-4-I-U-1 all living things depend on their environment and other organisms within it for their survival. Certain patterns of behavior or physical features may help an organism survive in some environments yet perish in others.
4 SC-4-I-U-2 environmental relationships extend beyond food (e.g. shelter, seed transport).
4 SC-4-UD-S-1 Students will compare the concepts of living, once living and nonliving
4 SC-4-UD-S-5 questions about the diversity of living things using information from a variety of print and non-print sources
4 SC-4-UD-U-1 Students will understand that things in the environment are classified as living, nonliving and once living.
4 SC-4-UD-U-5 Students will understand that some likenesses between parents and offspring are inherited (e.g. eye color) and some likenesses are learned (e.g. speech patterns in people).
5 SC-05-3.5.1 cause and effect relationships between enhanced survival/reproductive success and particular biological adaptations (e.g., changes in structures, behaviors, and/or physiology) to generalize about the diversity of species.
5 SC-05-3.5.2 all organisms must be able to obtain and use resources, grow, reproduce, and maintain stable internal conditions while living in a constantly changing external environment.
5 SC-5-BC-S-2 adaptations of various organisms to their environments through observations as well as print and non-print based resources
5 SC-5-BC-U-3 successful organisms must be able to maintain the basic functions of life in response to normal environmental fluctuations (e.g. day/night, seasonal temperature changes, precipitation).
5 SC-5-I-S-1 populations and communities within various ecosystems
5 SC-5-I-U-2 populations interact with each other in an ecosystem form a specific community, but there may be multiple communities within the same ecosystem.
5 SC-5-UD-U-1 animals and plants have a great variety of body plans and internal structures that contribute to their being able to meet their needs.
Primary SC-EP-3.4.1 Organisms have basic needs. For example, animals need air, water and food; plants need air, water, nutrients and light. Organisms can survive only in environments in which their needs can be met.
Primary SC-EP-3.4.3 Students will describe the basic structures and related functions of plants and animals that contribute to growth, reproduction and survival.
Primary SC-EP-3.4.3a Each plant or animal has observable structures that serve different functions in growth, survival and reproduction. For example, humans have distinct body structures for walking, holding, seeing and talking. These observable structures should be explored
Primary SC-EP-4.6.1 basic relationships of plants and animals in an ecosystem (food chains/interdependance).
Primary SC-EP-4.6.2 Plants make their own food. All animals depend on plants. Some animals eat plants for food. Other animals eat animals that eat the plants. Basic relationships and connections between organisms in food chains can be used to discover patterns within ecosystems
Primary SC-EP-4.7.1a Organisms require an environment in which their needs can be met. When the environment changes some plants and animals survive and reproduce and others die or move to new locations.
Primary SC-P-BC-U-2 understand that living things are found almost everywhere on our planet, but organisms living in one place may be different from those found somewhere else.
Primary SC-P-I-S-1 characteristics of an ecosystem
Primary SC-P-I-S-2 how organisms depend on their environments
Primary SC-P-I-U-1 the world has many different environments. Distinct environments support the lives of different types of organisms.
Primary SC-P-UD-S-1 Students will describe the basic needs of organisms and explain how these survival needs can be met only in certain environments
Primary SC-P-UD-S-2 identify the characteristics that define a habitat
Primary SC-P-UD-S-3 Students will investigate adaptations that enable animals and plants to grow, reproduce and survive (e.g., movements, body coverings, method of reproduction)
Primary SC-P-UD-S-4 Students will analyze structures of plants and animals to make inferences about the types of environments for which they are suited
Primary SC-P-UD-U-1 most living things need water, food and air, while nonliving things can continue to exist without any requirements.
Primary SC-P-UD-U-2 plants and animals have features that help them live in different environments.
Primary SC-P-UD-U-3 some animals are alike in the way they look and in the things they do, and others are very different from one another.
Primary SC-P-UD-U-4 the offspring all living things are very much like their parents, but not exactly alike.
Primary SS-EP-4.2.1 places on Earthês surface by their physical characteristics (e.g., climate, landforms, bodies of water).
Primary SS-P-G-S-1c identify major landforms (e.g., continents, mountain ranges) and major bodies of water (e.g., oceans, rivers)
Primary SS-P-G-S-2 Students will investigate the Earthês surface using print and non-print sources (e.g., books, magazines, films, Internet, geographic tools):
Primary SS-P-G-S-2a locate and describe places (e.g., local environments, different habitats) using their physical characteristics (e.g., landforms, bodies of water)
