Alignment to Standards for NM

1 GEO-1)2.F.1 Describe the role of resources in daily life.
1 SC-1) simple properties of matter (e.g., hardness, flexibility, transparency).
1 SC-1) living organisms inhabit various environments and have various external features to help them satisfy their needs (e.g., leaves, legs, claws).
1 SC-1) differences and similarities among living organisms (e.g., plants, animals).
1 SC-1) some parts of human bodies differ from similar parts of other animals (hands and feet/paws; ears).
2 GEO-2)2.C.1 Identify ways in which people depend on natural and man-made environments including natural resources to meet basic needs.
2 SC-2) diversity exists among individuals within a population.
2 SC-2) characteristics of the seasons.
3 EC-3)4.A.2 Define and categorize resources (e.g., human, financial, natural).
3 EC-3)4.A.3 Identify a variety of products that use similar resources.
3 GEO-3)2.D.1 Identify the components of the Earthês biosystems and their makeup (e.g., air, land, water, plants, and animals).
3 SC-3) an adaptation in physical structure or behavior can improve an organismês chance for survival (e.g., horned toads, chameleons, cacti, mushrooms).
3 SC-3) plants and animals have structures that serve different functions (e.g., shape of animalsê teeth).
3 SC-3) Classify plants according to their characteristics (e.g., tree leaves, flowers, seeds).
4 SC-4) different living organisms have distinctive structures and body systems that serve specific functions (e.g., walking, flying, swimming).
4 SC-4) roots are associated with the intake of water and soil nutrients and green leaves are associated with making food from sunlight (photosynthesis).
4 SC-4) a change in physical structure or behavior can improve an organismês chance of survival (e.g., a chameleon changes color, a turtle pulls its head into its shell, a plant grows toward the light).
4 SC-4) living organisms have developed characteristics to improve chances of survival (e.g., spines on cacti, long beaks on hummingbirds, good eyesight on hawks).
K GEO-K)2.F.1 Identify natural resources.
K SC-K) the relative sizes and characteristics of objects (e.g., bigger, brighter, louder, smellier).
K SC-K) objects are made of different types of materials
K SC-K) different materials have different properties (e.g., color, odor).
K SC-K) major structures of common livings organisms (e.g., stems, leaves, and roots of plants; arms, wings, and legs of animals).
K SC-K) differences exist among individual living organisms (e.g., plants, animals) of the same kind.
K SC-K) similarities and differences in the appearance and behavior of living organisms (e.g., plants, animals).
K SC-K) changes in weather occur from day to day and season to season.
