Plants depend on water and light to grow and on animals for pollination or to move their seeds around.
Resources cannot be aligned to this standard, browse sub-standards to find lessons.
Plan and conduct an investigation to determine if plants need sunlight and water to grow.
Students can use the full range of science and engineering practices to make sense of natural phenomena and solve problems that require understanding how living systems interact with the biotic and abiotic environment.
Develop a simple model that mimics the function of an animal in dispersing seeds or pollinating plants.
To live and grow, animals obtain food they need from plants or other animals, and plants need water and light.
Use observations to describe patterns of what plants and animals (including humans) need to survive.
Plants acquire their material from growth chiefly from air and water.
Support an argument that plants get the materials they need for growth chiefly from air and water.
Use a model to represent the relationship between the needs of different plants or animals (including humans) and the places they live.
