Standards Alignment

All classes are aligned to the Common Core Standards.
National Framework Guidelines for Science Standards.
By 5th grade…
• LS1A Structure and Function - ...animals have both internal... structures that serve various functions in growth, survival, behavior...
• LS1C Organization for Matter and Energy Flow in Organisms - Animals... generally need to take in air and water, animals must take in food... Food provides animals with the materials they need for body repair and growth and is digested to release the energy they need to maintain body warmth and for motion...
By 8th grade…
• LS1A Structure and Function - All living things are made up of cells... 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.)
• LS1C Organization for Matter and Energy Flow in Organisms - ... Animals obtain food from eating plants or eating other animals. Within individual organisms, food moves through a series of chemical reactions in which it is broken down and rearranged to form new molecules, to support growth, or to release energy. In most animals and plants, oxygen reacts with carbon- containing molecules (sugars) to provide energy...
