Alignment to Standards for KY

4 SC-04-4.7.2b classify the interactions as beneficial or harmful to the environment using data/evidence to support conclusions.
4 SC-04-4.7.2c All organisms, including humans, cause changes in the environment where they live. Some of these changes are detrimental to the organism or to other organisms; other changes are beneficial
4 SC-4-I-S-2 how changes in the environment affect the plantsê and animalsê ability to survive
4 SC-4-I-S-5 consequences of changes caused by humans or other organisms, and propose solutions to real life situations/dilemmas
4 SC-4-I-U-4 any single action can be both beneficial and harmful to different organisms in an ecosystem.
4 SC-4-UD-S-5 questions about the diversity of living things using information from a variety of print and non-print sources
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-I-S-3 cause/effect relationship of altering a particular population of organisms within an ecosystem
5 SC-5-I-U-1 Changes to any population may affect the other populations in that ecosystem.
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.
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-4.7.1 cause and effect relationships existing between organisms and their environments.
Primary SC-EP-4.7.1a When the environment changes some plants and animals survive and reproduce and others die or move to new locations. Examples of environmental changes resulting in either increase or decrease in numbers of a particular organism should be explored in order
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-S-3 the environment can be affected by the organisms living there
Primary SC-P-I-S-4 changes in an environment might affect plantsê and animalsê ability to survive
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-I-U-2 when the environment changes, some plants and animals survive and reproduce, and others die or move to new locations.
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-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.
