Standards Alignment

National Standards

All classes are aligned to the Common Core Standards.

National Framework Guidelines for Science Standards.
- By 8th grade…
• LS1A Structure and Function - All living things are made up of cells. They may consist of one single cell (unicellular) or many different numbers and types of cells (multicellular). Unicellular organisms (microorganisms), like multicellular organisms, need food, water, a way to dispose of waste, and an environment in which they can live. Within cells, special structures are responsible for particular functions, and the cell membrane forms the boundary that controls what enters and leaves the cell. In multicellular organisms, the body is a system of multiple interacting subsystems and groups of cells that work together to form tissues and organs that are specialized for particular body functions. (Boundary: At this grade level, only a few major cell structures should be introduced.)

- SC09-GR.7-S.2-GLE.2 - The human body is composed of atoms, molecules, cells, tissues, organs, and organ systems that have specific functions and interactions
- SC09-GR.7-S.2-GLE.3 - Photosynthesis and cellular respiration are important processes by which energy is acquired and utilized by organisms
