Alignment to Standards for VT

1,2 S 1-2:6 Sorting and classifying objects based upon observations, prior knowledge, or experience and justifying groupings.
1,2 S1-2:30 the parts that make up living things (i.e., roots, stems, leaves, flowers, legs, antennae, tail, shell).
1,2 S1-2:30a. Living things (plants and animals) are made of parts that enable survival.
1,2 S1-2:34a. Plants need light (energy) to survive.
1,2 S1-2:35a. All animals depend on plants. Some animals eat plants for food; other animals eat animals that eat plants.
1,2 S1-2:40 comparing their physical features with those of other organisms.
1,2 S1-2:47a. Change is something that happens to many things.
1,2 S1-2:48b. There are cyclical changes that we see throughout the seasons that can be observed and recorded.
1,2 S1-2:49 Identifying the natural sources of the food that is consumed on a daily basis (e.g., Bread-- wheatãflour; Sapãmaple syrup; Pastureãmeat and dairy).
1,2 S1-2:49a. Most food comes from farms either directly as crops or through the animals that eat the crops.
1,2 S1-2:9 Identifying, recording, and comparing characteristics of objects made of similar and different properties.
1,2 S1-2:9b. Similarities and differences in physical properties can be identified.
2,3 S3-4:30 Explaining how the physical structure/characteristic of an organism allows it to survive and defend itself (e.g., The coloring of a fiddler crab allows it to camouflage itself in the sand and grasses of its environment so that it will be protected from pr
2,3 S3-4:30a Organisms have physical characteristics that help them to survive in their environment. These structures enable an organism to: defend itself, obtain food, reproduce, eliminate waste.
2,3 S3-4:34a. Energy derived from food is needed for all organisms (plants and animals) to stay alive and grow.
2,3 S3-4:35.1a. Food for animals can be traced back to plants.
2,3 S3-4:35.1b. Organisms can survive best only in habitats in which their needs are met.
2,3 S3-4:36 Explaining how one organism depends upon another organism to survive.
2,3 S3-4:36a. Organisms interact with one another in various ways besides providing food Many plants depend on animals for carrying their pollen to other plants for fertilizing their flowers).
2,3 S3-4:38 Describing and sorting plants and animals into groups based on structural similarities and differences (e.g., All pine, spruce and evergreen trees have similar leaf structures; Spiders have eight legs, and insects have six).
2,3 S3-4:38a. The great variety of living things can be sorted into groups in many ways using various characteristics to decide which things belong to which group.
2,3 S3-4:39 differences in characteristics of a certain type of organism (e.g., dogs with long hair or short hair; humans with blue or brown eyes).
2,3 S3-4:39a. Organisms of the same kind differ in their individual characteristics/traits (e.g., Even though all dogs are of the same species, they can have very different traits).
2,3 S3-4:48.1a. Weather changes from day to day and over the seasons. Weather can be described by measurable quantities (such as temperature, wind direction and speed, precipitation and air pressure).
2,3 S3-4:49 the properties of living and non-living resources make them suitable for use by humans.
2,3 S3-4:5a Classifying objects and phenomena into sets and subsets and justifying groupings.
PK-K H&SSPK-K:5b Analyzing evidence (e.g., sorting objects, justifying groupings, role playing).
PK-K SPK-K:38 Sorting and identifying examples of plants and animals.
PK-K SPK-K:38a. Some living things (organisms) are identified as plants or animals.
PK-K SPK-K:49 items that students consume on a daily basis: food, fiber, paper, wool or wood).
PK-K SPK-K:49a. Natural Resources are materials that we obtain from the living and non-living environment.
PK-K SPK-K:6 Sorting objects based upon current observations and justifying groupings.
PK-K SPK-K:9b Objects can be sorted according to their properties.
