Alignment to Standards for MI

1 1 _ G1.0.4 Distinguish between landmasses and bodies of water using maps and globes.
1 L.HE.01.11 Identify characteristics (for example: body coverings, beak shape, number of legs, body parts) that are passed on from parents to young.
2 2 _ G5.0.1 Suggest ways people can responsibly interact with the environment in the local community.
2 E.FE.02.11 Identify water sources (wells, springs, lakes, rivers, oceans).
2 E.FE.02.12 Identify household uses of water (drinking, cleaning, food preparation).
2 E.FE.02.21 Describe how rain collects on the surface of the Earth and flows downhill into bodies of water (streams, rivers, lakes, oceans) or into the ground.
2 E.FE.02.22 Describe the major bodies of water on the Earthês surface (lakes, ponds, oceans, rivers, streams).
2 E.FE.E.1 Water is a natural resource and is found under the ground, on the surface of the earth, and in the sky. It exists in three states (liquid, solid, gas) and can go back and forth from one form to another.
2 E.SE.02.21 Describe the major landforms of the surface of the Earth (mountains, plains, plateaus, valleys, hills).
2 E.SE.E.2 The surface of Earth changes. Some changes are due to slow processes, such as erosion and weathering, and some changes are due to rapid processes, such as landslides, volcanic eruptions, and earthquakes.
2 L.HE.02.13 Identify characteristics of plants (for example: leaf shape, flower type, color, size) that are passed on from parents to young.
3 E.ES.03.43 Describe ways humans are protecting, extending, and restoring resources (recycle, reuse, reduce, renewal).
3 E.ES.03.51 humans are dependent on the natural environment (forests, water, clean air, earth materials) and constructed environments (homes, neighborhoods, shopping malls, factories, and industry).
3 E.ES.03.52 helpful or harmful effects of humans on the environment (garbage, habitat destruction, land management, renewable and non-renewable resources).
3 E.ES.E.4 The supply of many natural resources is limited. Humans have devised methods for extending their use of natural resources through recycling, reuse, and renewal.
3 E.ES.E.5 Humans depend on their natural and constructed environment. Humans change environments in ways that are helpful or harmful for themselves and other organisms.
3 E.SE.03.31 Identify Earth materials used to construct common objects ( bricks, buildings, roads, glass).
3 E.SE.03.32 Describe how materials taken from the Earth can be used as fuels for heating and transportation.
3 E.SE.E.1 Earth materials that occur in nature include rocks, minerals, soils, water, and the gases of the atmosphere. Some Earth materials have properties which sustain plant and animal life.
3 E.SE.E.3 Some Earth materials have properties that make them useful either in their present form or designed and modified to solve human problems. They can enhance the quality of life as in the case of materials used for building or fuels us
3 L.EV.03.12 characteristics and functions of observable body parts to the ability of animals to live in their environment (for example: sharp teeth, claws, color, body covers).
3 L.EV.E.1 Different kinds of organisms have characteristics that help them to live in different environments.
3 L.OL.03.32 Identify and compare structures in animals used for controlling body temperature, support, movement, food-getting, and protection (for example: fur, wings, teeth, claws).
3 L.OL.03.42 Classify animals on the basis of observable physical characteristics (backbone, skin, shell, limbs, scales).
3 L.OL.E.3 Organisms have different structures that serve different functions in growth, survival, and reproduction.
3 L.OL.E.4 Organisms can be classified on the basis of observable characteristics.
3 S.RS.03.18 Describe the effect humans and other organisms have on the balance of the natural world.
4 4 _ G1.0.4 Use geographic tools and technologies, stories, songs, and pictures to answer geographic questions about the United States.
4 L.EC.E.1 Organisms interact in various ways including providing food and shelter to one another: Some helpful: others are harmful to the organism and other organisms.
4 L.EC.E.2 When the environment changes, some plants and animals survive to reproduce; others die or move to new locations.
4 S.RS.04.18 Describe the effect humans and other organisms have on the balance of the natural world.
5 L.EV.05.11 Explain how behavioral characteristics (adaptation, instinct, learning, habit) of animals help them to survive in their environment.
5 L.EV.05.12 Describe the physical characteristics (traits) of organisms that help them survive in their environment.
5 L.HE.05.12 Distinguish between inherited and acquired traits.
5 L.HE.M.1 Inherited and Acquired Traits - The characteristics of organisms are influenced by heredity and environment. For some characteristics, inheritance is more important; for other characteristics, interactions with the environment are more important.
K K _ G1.0.1 Recognize that maps and globes represent places.
