Alignment to Standards for KY

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-04-3.4.3 Students will compare a variety of life cycles of plants and animals in order to classify and make inferences about an organism.
4 SC-04-3.4.3a Plants and animals have life cycles that include the beginning of life, growth and development, reproduction and death. The details of a life cycle are different for different organisms.
4 SC-04-4.7.1a patterns of evidence related to the survival and reproductive success of organisms in particular environments.
4 SC-4-UD-S-3 Students will investigate and compare life cycles, especially reproductive characteristics (e.g., gestational periods, germination rates, number of offspring) and life expectancies of plants and animals to make inferences and/or draw conclusions about the
4 SC-4-UD-U-6 Students will understand that all living things are produced from other living things. They grow and then eventually die. Before they die most living things create offspring, allowing their kind to continue.
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-S-3 ways that organisms cope with fluctuations (e.g. temperature, precipitation, change in food sources) in their environments
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-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-3.4.3 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-3.4.4 Students will describe a variety of plant and animal life cycles to understand patterns of the growth, development, reproduction and death of an organism. Plants and animals have life cycles that include the beginning of life, growth and development, repr
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-I-U-1 the world has many different environments. Distinct environments support the lives of different types of organisms.
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-S-6 Students will analyze and compare a variety of plant and animal life cycles in order to uncover patterns of growth, development, reproduction and death of an organism
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 SS-EP-4.1.1 Students will use geographic tools (e.g., maps, globes, mental maps, charts, graphs) to locate and describe familiar places at home, school and the community.
Primary SS-EP-4.1.2 use geographic tools to identify major landforms (e.g., continents, mountain ranges), bodies of water (e.g., oceans, major rivers) and natural resources on Earthês surface and use relative location.
Primary SS-P,4&5-G-U-1 use of geographic tools (e.g., maps, globes, charts, graphs) and mental maps help interpret information, understand and analyze patterns, spatial data and geographic issues.
