Develop and use a model to describe phenomena and unobservable mechanisms. (Developing and Using Models) (Personal: Initiative/Self-direction)
PS3:D Energy in Chemical Processes and Everyday Life: The chemical reaction by which plants produce complex food molecules (sugars) requires an energy input (i.e., from sunlight) to occur. In this reaction, carbon dioxide and water combine to form carbon-based organic molecules and release oxygen. Cellular respiration in plants and animals involve chemical reactions with oxygen that release stored energy. In these processes, complex molecules containing carbon react with oxygen to produce carbon dioxide and other materials.
Energy and Matter: Within a natural system, the transfer of energy drives the motion and/or cycling of matter.
How do organisms detect, process, and use information about the environment?
Construct a scientific explanation based on valid and reliable evidence obtained from sources (including the students’ own experiments) and the assumption that theories and laws that describe the natural world operate today as they did in the past and will continue to do so in the future.
