All living organisms have identifiable structures and characteristics that allow for survival (organisms, populations, & species).
Resources cannot be aligned to this standard, browse sub-standards to find lessons.
Sort/classify different living things using similar and different characteristics. Describe why organisms belong to each group or cite evidence about how they are alike or not alike.
Identify the basic needs of plants and animals in order to stay alive. (i.e., water, air, food, space).
Predict, sequence or compare the life stages of organisms – plants and animals (e.g., put images of life stages of an organism in order, predict the next stage in sequence, compare two organisms).
Identify and explain how the physical structures of an organism (plants or animals) allow it to survive in its habitat/environment (e.g., roots for water; nose to smell fire).
