VT.LS. Life Science
Enduring Knowledge: All living organisms and their component cells have identifiable characteristics that allow for survival.
S3-4:30. Students demonstrate their understanding of Structure and Function-Survival Requirements by:
S3-4:30.1. Explaining how the physical structure/characteristic of an organism allows it to survive and defend itself (e.g., The coloring of a fiddler crab allows it to camouflage itself in the sand and grasses of its environment so that it will be protected from predators. A rose is protected by its thorns). (DOK 2)
S3-4:31. Students demonstrate their understanding of Reproduction by:
S3-4:31.1. Investigating and describing a variety of plant and animal life cycles. (DOK 2)
