1 S1CS4. c Compare very different sizes, weights, ages (baby/adult), and speeds (fast/slow) of both human made and natural things.
1 S1L1. d. Compare and describe various animalsãappearance, motion, growth, basic needs.
2 S2CS4.d. Compare very different sizes, weights, ages (baby/adult), and speeds (fast/slow) of both human made and natural things.
2 S2E3. a. effects that occur in a specific area caused by weather, plants, animals, and/or people.
2 S2L1. Students will investigate the life cycles of different living organisms.
2 S2L1. a. Determine the sequence of the life cycle of common animals in your area: a mammal such as a cat or dog or classroom pet, a bird such as a chicken, an amphibian such as a frog, and an insect such as a butterfly.
3 S3L1. a. Differentiate between habitats of Georgia (mountains, marsh/swamp, coast, Piedmont, Atlantic Ocean) and the organisms that live there.
3 S3L1. c. Identify features of animals that allow them to live and thrive in different regions of Georgia.

3 S3L2. recognize the effects of pollution and humans on the environment.
3 S3L2. b. Identify ways to protect the environment: conservation of resources, recycling of materials
4 S4L1. c. Predict how changes in the environment would affect a community (ecosystem) of organisms.
4 S4L2. identify factors that affect the survival or extinction of organisms such as adaptation, variation of behaviors (hibernation), and external features (camouflage and protection).
4 S4L2. a. Identify external features of organisms that allow them to survive or reproduce better than organisms that do not have these features (for example: camouflage, use of hibernation, protection, etc.).
4 S4L2. b. Identify factors that may have led to the extinction of some organisms. (reasons for threatened/endangered/conservation issues)
5 S5L2. Students will recognize that offspring can resemble parents in inherited traits and learned behaviors.
5 S5L2. a. Compare and contrast the characteristics of learned behaviors and of inherited traits.
K SKCS4.c Compare very different sizes (large/small), ages (parent/baby), speeds (fast/slow), and weights (heavy/light) of both manmade and natural things.
K SKCS5.A Describe and compare things in terms of number, shape, texture, size, weight, color, and motion.
K SKE1. Students will describe time patterns (such as day to night and night to day) and objects (such as sun, moon, stars) in the day and night sky.
K SKL1. b Group animals according to their observable features such as appearance, size, motion, where it lives, etc. (Example: A green frog has four legs and hops. A rabbit also hops.)
K SKL2. Students will compare the similarities and differences in groups of organisms.
K SKL2. a Explain the similarities and differences in animals. (color, size, appearance, etc.)
K SKL2. c Recognize the similarities and differences between a parent and a baby.
