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
