Alignment to Standards for KY

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-04-4.7.1a patterns of evidence related to the survival and reproductive success of organisms in particular environments.
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-3 organisms have different structures that are used for different functions. Observations of the structures of a certain organism can be used to predict how that organism functions or where it might live.
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-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-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-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-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-S-5 why some animals are endangered or extinct; why some areas are •protectedê)
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-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 SS-EP-4.4.1 ways people adapt to/modify the physical environment to meet their basic needs (food, shelter, clothing).
Primary SS-P-G-S-3 ways people and animals modify the physical environment to meet their basic needs (e.g., clearing land to build homes versus building nests and burrows as shelters)
Primary SS-P-G-U-3 Students will understand that people depend on, adapt to, and/or modify the environment to meet basic needs. Human actions modify the physical environment and in turn, the physical environment limits and/or promotes human activities.
