2 GEO-2)2.A.1. Use a variety of maps to locate specific places and regions.
2 GEO-2)2.A.2 Identify major landforms, bodies of water, and other places of significance in selected countries, continents, and oceans.
2 GEO-2)2.C.1 Identify ways in which people depend on natural and man-made environments including natural resources to meet basic needs.
2 GEO-2)2.D.1 Describe the physical processes that affect the Earthís features
2 GEO-2)2.F.1 Describe ways that people and groups can conserve and replenish natural resources.
2 SC-2)2.1.1. properties change when they are mixed, cooled, or heated (salt dissolves in water, ice melts).
2 SC-2)2.2.2.3. the environment influences some characteristics of living things (e.g., amount of sunlight required for plant growth).
3 EC-3)4.A.2 Define and categorize resources (e.g., human, financial, natural).
3 EC-3)4.A.3 Identify a variety of products that use similar resources.
3 GEO-3)2.A1 Identify and use the mapping tools of scale, compass rose, grid, symbols, and mental mapping to locate and draw places on maps and globes.
3 SC-3)2.2.1.1. an adaptation in physical structure or behavior can improve an organismís chance for survival (e.g., horned toads, chameleons, cacti, mushrooms).
3 SC-3)2.2.1.2. plants and animals have structures that serve different functions (e.g., shape of animalsí teeth).
3 SC-3)2.2.1.3. Classify common animals according to their observable characteristics (e.g., body coverings, structure).
3 SC-3)2.2.2.1. living things cause changes to the environments in which they live, and that some of these changes are detrimental to the organism and some are beneficial.
3 SC-3)2.3.2.1. Know that Earthís features are constantly changed by a combination of slow and rapid processes that include the action of volcanoes, earthquakes, mountain building, biological changes, erosion, and weathering.
3 SC-3)2.3.2.4. Identify how water exists in the air in different forms (e.g., in clouds and fog as tiny droplets; in rain, snow, and hail) and changes from one form to another through various processes (e.g., freezing/condensation, precipitation, evaporation).
4 SC-4)2.2.1.1. different living organisms have distinctive structures and body systems that serve specific functions (e.g., walking, flying, swimming).
4 SC-4)2.2.2.1. in any particular environment some kinds of plants and animals survive well, some survive less well, and others cannot survive at all.
4 SC-4)2.2.2.2. a change in physical structure or behavior can improve an organismís chance of survival (e.g., a chameleon changes color, a turtle pulls its head into its shell, a plant grows toward the light).
4 SC-4)2.2.2.3. living organisms have developed characteristics to improve chances of survival (e.g., spines on cacti, long beaks on hummingbirds, good eyesight on hawks).
K GEO-K)2.B.1 Identify natural characteristics of places (e.g., climate, topography).
