1 SC:1.2 Living things have different structures and behaviors that allow them to meet their basic needs.
1 SC:1.2.a/b5 Compare and contrast information about animals and plants found in fiction and nonfiction (FCM) sources.
1 SC:1.3.a Some organisms undergo metamorphosis during their life cycles; other organisms grow and change, but their basic form stays essentially the same.
1 SC:1.3.a1 Explain that living things experience a life cycle during which they undergo a predictable sequence of changes from birth, growth, reproduction and death.
1 SC:1.3.a2 Distinguish between animals that are born alive (e.g., humans, dogs, cows) and those that hatch from eggs (e.g., chickens, sea turtles, crocodiles).
3 SC:3.2 Organisms can survive and reproduce only in environments that meet their basic needs.
3 SC:3.2.a Plants and animals have structures and behaviors that help them survive in different environments.
3 SC:3.2.a1 Compare and contrast the external features and behaviors that enable different animals and plants to get food, water and sunlight; find mates; and be protected in specific land and water habitats.
3 SC:3.2.a2 behaviors such as hibernation, dormancy and migration give species advantages for surviving unfavorable environmental conditions.
3 SC:3.2.a4 Evaluate whether an adaptation gives a plant or animal a survival advantage in a given environment.
3 SC:3.4 Earth materials provide resources for all living things, but these resources are limited and should be conserved.
4 SC:4.2 All organisms depend on the living and nonliving features of the environment for survival.
4 SC:4.2.a4 energy is transferred from plants to various animals in an ecosystem.
4 SC:4.2.a5 Distinguish between naturally occurring changes in ecosystems and those caused by human activity.
4 SC:4.3 Water has a major role in shaping the Earth’s surface.
K SC:K.1.a3 Classify organisms or objects by one and two observable properties and explain the rule used for sorting (e.g., size, color, shape, texture or flexibility).
K SC:K.1.a6 Count, order and sort objects by their observable properties.6.
K SC:K.2 Many different kinds of living things inhabit the Earth.
K SC:K.2.a4 similarities and differences between plants and animals.
K SC:K.3 Weather conditions vary daily and seasonally.
K SC:K.3.a Daily and seasonal weather conditions affect what we do, what we wear and how we feel.
K SC:K.3.a4 Write, speak or draw ways that weather influences humans, other animals and plants.
K SC:K.4.a Humans select both natural and man-made materials to build shelters based on local climate conditions, properties of the materials, and their availability in the environment.
Pre-K SC:PK.2 Many different kinds of living things inhabit the Earth.
Pre-K SC:PK.2.a.3 distinguish between the characteristics of plants and animals.
Pre-K SC:PK.3 Weather conditions vary daily and seasonally.
Pre-K SC:PK.3.a. Daily and seasonal weather conditions affect what we do, what we wear and how we feel.
Pre-K SC:PK.3.a.3 Identify the season that corresponds with observable conditions (e.g., falling leaves, snow vs. rain, buds on trees or greener grass).
