Wisconsin Academic Standards

WI.SCI. Science
SCI.CC. Crosscutting Concepts (CC)
SCI.CC4. Students use science and engineering practices, disciplinary core ideas, and an understanding of systems and models to make sense of phenomena and solve problems.
Systems and System Models
SCI.CC4.3-5. Students understand a system is a group of related parts that make up a whole and can carry out functions its individual parts cannot. They also describe a system in terms of its components and their interactions.
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.LS4. Students use science and engineering practices, crosscutting concepts, and an understanding of biological evolution to make sense of phenomena and solve problems.
SCI.LS4.C. Adaptation
SCI.LS4.C.3. Particular organisms can only survive in particular environments.
