1 112.12 (b) (5) (A) classify objects by observable properties of the materials from which they are made such as larger and smaller, heavier and lighter, shape, color, and texture
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) (B) identify examples of and uses for natural resources in the community, state, and nation; and
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
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) (7) (D) explore the characteristics of natural resources that make them useful in products and materials such as clothing and furniture and how resources may be conserved.
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) (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) (9)(A) most producers need sunlight, water, and carbon dioxide to make their own food, while consumers are dependent on other organisms for food
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) (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) there are relationships, systems, and cycles within environments.
5 112.16. (b) (9) (B) describe how the flow of energy derived from the Sun, used by producers to create their own food, is transferred through a food chain and food web to consumers and decomposers
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 112.11 (b) (10) organisms resemble their parents and have structures and processes that help them survive within their environments.
K 112.11 (b) (3) (A) identify and explain a problem such as the impact of littering on the playground and propose a solution in his/her own words
PK PK.1. (J) compares objects and organisms and identifies similarities and differences
PK PK.1. (K) sorts objects and organisms into groups and begins to describe how groups were organized
PK PK.2. (B) describes properties of objects and characteristics of living things
PK PK.2. (I) identifies similarities and differences among objects and organisms
