1 112.12 (b) (10) organisms resemble their parents and have structures and processes that help them survive within their environments.
1 112.12 (b) (10) (A) external characteristics of an animal are related to where it lives, how it moves, and what it eats
1 112.12 (b) (10) (C) compare ways that young animals resemble their parents
1 112.12 (b) (9) the living environment is composed of relationships between organisms and the life cycles that occur.
1 112.12 (b) (9) (C) interdependence among living organisms such as energy transfer through food chains and animals using plants for shelter.
1 113.3. (1.6) (A) physical characteristics of places such as landforms, bodies of water, natural resources, and weather;
2 112.13. (b) (10) (A) compare how the physical characteristics and behaviors of animals help them meet their basic needs such as fins help fish move and balance in the water
2 112.13. (b) (9) (C) ways living organisms depend on each other and on their environments such as food chains
2 113.4. (2.6) locations and characteristics of places and regions.
2 113.4. (2.8) (B) identify ways in which people have modified the physical environment such as building roads, clearing land for urban development, and mining coal;
3 112.14. (b) (10) organisms undergo similar life processes and have structures that help them survive within their environments.
3 112.14. (b) (10) (A) explore how structures and functions of plants and animals allow them to survive in a particular environment
3 112.14. (b) (10) (B) some characteristics of organisms are inherited such as the number of limbs on an animal or flower color and recognize that some behaviors are learned in response to living in a certain environment such as animals using tools to get food
3 112.14. (b) (9) organisms have characteristics that help them survive and can describe patterns, cycles, systems, and relationships within the environments.
3 112.14. (b) (9) (A) physical characteristics of environments and how they support populations and communities within an ecosystem
3 112.14. (b) (9) (C) describe environmental changes such as floods and droughts where some organisms thrive and others perish or move to new locations.
4 112.15. (b) (10) organisms undergo similar life processes and have structures that help them survive within their environment.
4 112.15. (b) (10) (A) explore how adaptations enable organisms to survive in their environment such as comparing birds beaks and leaves on plants
4 112.15. (b) (9) living organisms within an ecosystem interact with one another and with their environment.
5 112.16. (b) (10) organisms undergo similar life processes and have structures that help them survive within their environments.
5 112.16. (b) (10) (A) compare the structures and functions of different species that help them live and survive such as hooves on prairie animals or webbed feet in aquatic animals
5 112.16. (b) (10) (B) differentiate between inherited traits of plants and animals such as spines on a cactus or shape of a beak and learned behaviors such as an animal learning tricks or a child riding a bicycle
5 112.16. (b) (9) (C) predict the effects of changes in ecosystems caused by living organisms, including humans, such as the overpopulation of grazers or the building of highways
K 111.12 (K.11) uses time to describe, compare, and order events and situations.
K 111.12 (K.11) (B) is expected to sequence events (up to three).
K 112.11 (b) (10) organisms resemble their parents and have structures and processes that help them survive within their environments.
