Alignment to Standards for NC

1 SC:1.E.2 Understand the physical properties of Earth materials that make them useful in different ways.
1 SC:1.L.1 characteristics of various environments and behaviors of humans that enable plants and animals to survive.
1 SC:1.L.1.2 Give examples of how the needs of different plants and animals can be met by their environments in North Carolina or different places throughout the world.
1 SC:1.L.1.3 Summarize ways that humans protect their environment and/or improve conditions for the growth of the plants and animals that live there. (e.g., reuse or recycle products to avoid littering.)
1 SS:1-5.02 Investigate key features of maps.
1 SS:1-5.06 Compare and contrast geographic features of places within various communities.
1 SS:1-5.07 Explore physical features of continents and major bodies of water.
2 SS:2-5.01 Define geography and use geographic terms to describe landforms, bodies of water, weather, and climate.
2 SS:2-5.02 Describe the role of a geographer and apply geographic tools, such as maps, globes, compasses and photographs, in the understanding of locations and characteristics of places and regions.
2 SS:2-5.03 Compare and contrast the physical features of communities and regions.
2 SS:2-5.05 Interpret maps, charts, and pictures of locations.
2 SS:2-5.06 Identify and describe the people, vegetation, and animal life specific to certain regions and describe their interdependence.
2 SS:2-6.01 Identify natural resources and cite ways people conserve and replenish natural resources.
3 SC:3.E.2.1 Compare Earthês saltwater and freshwater features (including oceans, seas, rivers, lakes, ponds, streams, and glaciers).
3 SC:3.E.2.2 Compare Earthês land features (volcanoes, mountains, valleys, canyons, caverns, and islands) by using pictures, and maps.
3 SC:3.L.2.2 Explain how environmental conditions determine how well plants survive and grow.
3 SC:3.P.2 Understand the structure and properties of matter before and after they undergo a change.
3 SC:3.P.2.3 changes occur to the observable properties of materials when different degrees of heat are applied to them, such as melting ice or ice cream, boiling water or an egg, or freezing water.
3 SS:3-4.01 Distinguish between various types of maps and globes.
4 SC:4.E.2.3 surface of the earth changes due to slow processes such as erosion and weathering, and rapid processes such as landslides, volcanic eruptions, and earthquakes.
4 SC:4.L.1 effects of environmental changes, adaptations and behaviors that enable animals (including humans) to survive in changing habitats.
4 SC:4.L.1.2 how animals meet their needs by using behaviors in response to information received from the environment.
4 SC:4.L1.3 Explain how humans can adapt their behavior to live in changing habitats (e.g., recycling wastes, establishing rain gardens, planting trees and shrubs to prevent flooding and erosion ).
4 SC:4.P.2 Understand the composition and properties of matter before and after they undergo a change or interaction.
5 SC:5.L.1 structures and systems of organisms perform functions necessary for life.
5 SC:5.L.2 Understand the interdependence of plants and animals with their ecosystem.
5 SC:5.L.2.1 Compare the characteristics of several common ecosystems, including estuaries and salt marshes, oceans, lakes and ponds, forests, and grasslands).
5 SC:5.L.2.2 Classify the organisms within an ecosystem according to the function they serve: producers, consumers, or decomposers (biotic factors).
5 SC:5.L.2.3 Infer the effects that may result from the interconnected relationship of plants and animals to their ecosystem.
5 SC:5.L.3.2 Give examples of likenesses that are inherited and some that are not.
