Wisconsin Academic Standards
SCI.CC. Crosscutting Concepts (CC)
SCI.CC1. Students use science and engineering practices, disciplinary core ideas, and patterns to make sense of phenomena and solve problems.
SCI.CC1.3-5. Students identify similarities and differences in order to sort and classify natural objects and designed products. They identify patterns related to time, including simple rates of change and cycles, and use these patterns to make predictions.
SCI.LS. Disciplinary Core Idea: Life Science (LS)
SCI.LS1. Students use science and engineering practices, crosscutting concepts, and an understanding of structures and processes (on a scale from molecules to organisms) to make sense of phenomena and solve problem.
SCI.LS1.A. Structure and Function
SCI.LS1.A.4. Plants and animals have both internal and external macroscopic structures that allow for growth, survival, behavior, and reproduction.
SCI.LS1.B. Growth and Development of Organisms
SCI.LS1.B.3. Reproduction is essential to every kind of organism. Organisms have unique and diverse life cycles.
