Standards

Plan and conduct an investigation to describe and classify different kinds of materials by their observable properties.
Analyze and interpret data to provide evidence that plants and animals have traits inherited from parents and that variation of these traits exists in a group of similar organisms.
Use evidence to support the explanation that traits can be influenced by the environment.
Construct an argument that plants and animals have internal and external structures that function to support survival, growth, behavior, and reproduction.
Life cycles vary among organisms, but reproduction is a major stage in the life cycle of all organisms.
Life cycles vary among organisms, but reproduction is a major stage in the life cycle of all organisms.
Plants and animals, including humans, interact with and depend upon each other and their environment to satisfy their basic needs.
Through observation, recognize that all plants and animals, including humans, need the basic necessities of air, water, food, and space.
Plants and animals, including humans, interact with and depend upon each other and their environment to satisfy their basic needs.
Compare and contrast the basic needs that all living things, including humans, have for survival.
Plants and animals, including humans, interact with and depend upon each other and their environment to satisfy their basic needs.
