New Hampshire College and Career Ready Standards
NH.LS1. Life Science: All living organisms have identifiable structures and characteristics that allow for survival (organisms, populations, and species).
S:LS1:4:3.2. Reproduction: Students will recognize that living organisms have life cycles, which include birth, growth and development, reproduction, and death; and explain how these life cycles vary for different organisms.
S:LS1:4:3.4. Reproduction: Students will predict, sequence, or compare the life stages of organisms (plants and animals): e.g., put images of life stages of an organism in order, predict the next stage in sequence, and compare two organisms.
NH.LS3. Life Science: Groups of organisms show evidence of change over time (e.g. evolution, natural selection, structures, behaviors, and biochemistry).
S:LS3:4:1.2. Change: Students will provide examples of how an organism's inherited characteristics can adapt and change over time in response to changes in the environment.
S:LS3:4:3.2. Natural Selection: Students will recognize that for any particular environment, some kinds of animals and plants survive well, some less well, and some cannot survive at all.
