Possible Next Generation Science Standards met through this program:
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-LS4-3. Construct an argument with evidence that in a particular habitat some organisms can survive well, some survive less well, and some cannot survive at all.
