Students will investigate the reasons for insect success.
Resources cannot be aligned to this standard, browse sub-standards to find lessons.
Investigate the insect body plan and compare and contrast to other arthropods (e.g., Arachnida, Crustacea).
Explain advantages of different insect life cycles (e.g., complete vs. incomplete).
Use morphological characteristics (e.g., wing structure) to recognize major insect orders.
Compare and contrast how insect structure and function are integrated and reflect evolved adaptations to different environments.
