K-3 Core Standards
  • K-LS1-1. Use observations to describe patterns of what plants and animals (including humans) need to survive.
  • 2-LS4-1. Make observations of plants and animals to compare the diversity of life in different habitats
  • 3-LS3-2. Use evidence to support the explanation that traits can be influenced by the environment.
  • K-ESS3-1. Use a model to represent the relationship between the needs of different plants or animals (including humans) and the places they live.
  • 1-LS1-1. Use materials to design a solution to a human problem by mimicking how plants and/or animals use their external parts to help them survive, grow, and meet their needs.*
  • 1-LS3-1. Make observations to construct an evidence-based account that young plants and animals are like, but not exactly like, their parents.
