- Life Science: Exploring Organisms and the Environment
The student will demonstrate an understanding of organisms found in the environment and how these organisms depend on the environment to meet those needs.
The environment consists of many types of organisms including plants, animals, and fungi. Organisms depend on the land, water, and air to live and grow. Plants need water and light to make their own food. Fungi and animals cannot make their own food and get energy from other sources. Animals (including humans) use different body parts to obtain food and other resources needed to grow and survive. Organisms live in areas where their needs for air, water, nutrients, and shelter are met.
Develop and use models to exemplify how animals use their body parts to
