New Hampshire College and Career Ready Standards
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:LS1:4:3.2. 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.LS2. Life Science: Energy flows and matter recycles through an ecosystem.
S:LS2:4:3.1. Recycling of Materials: Students will recognize that plants and animals interact with one another in various ways besides providing food, such as seed dispersal or pollination.
