Alignment to Standards for KY

4 SC-04-4.6.2a analyze data/evidence of the Sun providing light and heat to earth;
4 SC-04-4.6.2b use data/evidence to substantiate the conclusion that the Sunês light and heat are necessary to sustaining life on Earth.
4 SC-04-4.6.2c Simple observations, experiments and data collection begin to reveal that the Sun provides the light and heat necessary to maintain the temperature of Earth.
4 SC-04-4.6.2d Evidence collected and analyzed should be used to substantiate the conclusion that the sunês light and heat are necessary to sustain life on Earth.
4 SC-4-ET-U-2 light and heat from the sun are essential to sustaining most life on earth. Plants change energy from the sunês light into energy that is used as food by the plant.
5 SC-05-4.6.2 the Sun is a major source of energy for changes on Earthês surface. The Sun loses energy by emitting light. A tiny fraction of that light reaches Earth, transferring energy from the Sun to Earth.
5 SC-5-ET-S-2 describe solar energy and how it impacts physical and biological systems on Earth
5 SC-5-ET-U-2 energy from the sun flows through space to reach the earth. Solar energy provides the driving force for many of the changes that happen on the Earthês surface.
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-4.6.2 describe evidence of the sun providing light and heat to the Earth. Simple observations and investigations begin to reveal that the Sun provides the light and heat necessary to maintain the temperature of Earth. Based on those experiences, t
Primary SC-EP-4.7.1 cause and effect relationships existing between organisms and their environments.
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-ET-S-3 basic relationships of plants and animals in an ecosystem (simple food chains and webs)
Primary SC-P-ET-S-4 sun provides light and heat to the Earth
Primary SC-P-ET-U-2 all kinds of food that animals eat can be traced back to plants. Food chains/webs are useful models of these relationships.
Primary SC-P-ET-U-3 the sun warms the air, land and water, and lights the Earth.
Primary SC-P-I-S-1 characteristics of an ecosystem
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-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-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.
