1 112.12 (b) (10) (C) compare ways that young animals resemble their parents
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) (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.
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
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.
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) (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) there are relationships, systems, and cycles within environments.
5 112.16. (b) (9) (A) organisms live and survive in their ecosystem by interacting with the living and non-living elements
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) (10) (A) sort plants and animals into groups based on physical characteristics such as color, size, body covering, or leaf shape
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. (C) begins to recognize patterns in their environment (e.g., day follows night, repeated phrases in storybooks, patterns in carpeting or clothing)
PK PK.2. (I) identifies similarities and differences among objects and organisms
