Alignment to Standards for SC

1 SC:1-1.1 Compare, classify, and sequence objects by number, shape, texture, size, color, and motion, using English units of measurement where appropriate.
2 SC:2-2.3 distinct environments throughout the world support the life of different types of animals.
2 SC:2-2.4 Summarize the interdependence between animals and plants as sources of food and shelter.
2 SC:2-3.2 Recall weather terminology (including temperature, wind direction, wind speed, and precipitation as rain, snow, sleet, and hail).
2 SC:2-3.3 Illustrate the weather conditions of different seasons.
2 SC:2-3.6 Identify safety precautions that one should take during severe weather conditions.
3 SC:3-2.2 Explain how physical and behavioral adaptations allow organisms to survive (including hibernation, defense, locomotion, movement, food obtainment, and camouflage for animals and seed dispersal, color, and response to light for plants).
3 SC:3-2.3 Recall the characteristics of an organisms habitat that allow the organism to survive there.
3 SC:3-2.4 Explain how changes in the habitats of plants and animals affect their survival.
3 SC:3-3.6 Illustrate Earths land features (including volcanoes, mountains, valleys, canyons, caverns, and islands) by using models, pictures, diagrams, and maps.
3 SC:3-3.8 Illustrate changes in Earths surface that are due to slow processes (including weathering, erosion, and deposition) and changes that are due to rapid processes (including landslides, volcanic eruptions, floods, and earthquakes).
4 SC:4-2.2 the characteristics of distinct environments (including swamps, rivers and streams, tropical rain forests, deserts, and the polar regions) influence the variety of organisms in each.
4 SC:4-2.4 Distinguish between the characteristics of an organism that are inherited and those that are acquired over time.
4 SC:4-2.5 Explain how an organisms patterns of behavior are related to its environment (including the kinds and the number of other organisms present, the availability of food and other resources, and the physical characteristics of the environment).
4 SC:4-2.6 Explain how organisms cause changes in their environment.
4 SC:4-4.4 Summarize the conditions and effects of severe weather phenomena (including thunderstorms, hurricanes, and tornadoes) and related safety concerns.
5 SC:5-2.2 composition of an ecosystem, considering both biotic factors (including populations to the level of microorganisms and communities) and abiotic factors.
5 SC:5-2.3 characteristics of different ecosystems (including estuaries/salt marshes, oceans, lakes and ponds, forests, and grasslands).
5 SC:5-2.5 Explain how limiting factors (including food, water, space, and shelter) affect populations in ecosystems.
5 SC:5-3.1 natural processes (including weathering, erosion, deposition, landslides, volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, and floods) affect Earths oceans and land in constructive and destructive ways.
5 SC:5-3.2 Illustrate the geologic landforms of the ocean floor (including the continental shelf and slope, the mid-ocean ridge, rift zone, trench, and the ocean basin).
5 SC:5-3.3 Compare continental and oceanic landforms.
K SC:K-4.1 Identify weather changes that occur from day to day.
K SC:K-4.2 Compare the weather patterns that occur from season to season.
K SC:K-4.3 Summarize ways that the seasons affect plants and animals.
K SS:K-5.4 Recognize natural features of the environment, including mountains and bodies of water, through pictures, literature, and models.
