NH.SPS2. Science Process Skills: Unifying Concepts of Science
S:SPS2:4:4.3. Patterns of Change: Students will apply skills from previous grades and demonstrate that some features of things may stay the same even when other features change (e.g., some patterns look the same when they are shifted over, turned, reflected, or seen from different directions).
NH.LS1. Life Science: All living organisms have identifiable structures and characteristics that allow for survival (organisms, populations, and species).
S:LS1:4:2.1. Living Things and Organization: Students will recognize that living organisms have certain structures and systems that perform specific functions, facilitating survival, growth and reproduction.
S:LS1:4.2.2. Living Things and Organization: Students identify and describe the function of the plant structures responsible for food production, water transport, support, reproduction, growth and protection.
S:LS1:4:2.3. Living Things and Organization: Students identify and explain how the physical structures of an organism (plants or animals) allow it to survive in its habitat/environment (e.g., roots for water; nose to smell fire).
S:LS1:4:2.4. Living Things and Organization: Students identify the basic needs of plants and animals in order to stay alive (i.e., water, air, food, space).
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.
