KY.CC. Core Content for Assessment v.4.1
SC-EP-3.4. Unity and Diversity: Elementary students begin to observe the macroscopic features of organisms in order to make comparisons and classifications based upon likenesses and differences. Looking for patterns in the appearance and behavior of an organism leads to the notion that offspring are much like the parents, but not exactly alike.
SC-EP-3.4.3. Biological Science: Students will describe the basic structures and related functions of plants and animals that contribute to growth, reproduction and survival.
KY.PS. Program of Studies 2006
SC-P-UD. Big Idea: Unity and Diversity (Biological Science) - All matter is comprised of the same basic elements, goes through the same kinds of energy transformations, and uses the same kinds of forces to move. Living organisms are no exception. Elementary students begin to observe the macroscopic features of organisms in order to make comparisons and classifications based upon likenesses and differences. Looking for patterns in the appearance and behavior of an organism leads to the notion that offspring are much like the parents, but not exactly alike. Emphasis at every level should be placed upon the understanding that while every living thing is composed of similar small constituents that combine in predictable ways, it is the subtle variations within these small building blocks that account for both the likenesses and differences in form and function that create the diversity of life. (Academic Expectations 2.1, 2.2, 2.3)
SC-P-UD-U-2. Program of Studies: Understandings - Students will understand that plants and animals have features that help them live in different environments.
SC-P-UD-U-3. Program of Studies: Understandings - Students will understand that some animals are alike in the way they look and in the things they do, and others are very different from one another.
SC-P-UD-U-5. Program of Studies: Understandings - Students will understand that organisms may not be able to survive if some of their parts are missing.
