New Hampshire Standards
NH.LS1. Life Science: All living organisms have identifiable structures and characteristics that allow for survival (organisms, populations, and species).
S:LS1:6:2.5. Living Things and Organization: Students will explain that multicellular organisms have specialized cells, tissues, organs and organ systems that perform certain necessary functions, including digestion, respiration, reproduction, circulation, excretion, movement, control and coordination and protection from disease.
S:LS1:6:2.6. Living Things and Organization: Students will recognize that the human cells found in tissues and organs are similar to those of other animals, but somewhat different from cells found in plants.
NH.LS4. Life Science: Humans are similar to other species in many ways, and yet are unique among Earth's life forms.
S:LS4:6:2.1. Disease: Students will explain that the human body has ways to defend itself against disease-causing organisms and describe how defenders, including tears, saliva, the skin, some blood cells and stomach secretions support the defense process.
NH.SPS2. Science Process Skills: Unifying Concepts of Science
S:SPS2:6:5.1. Form and Function: Students will apply skills from previous grades and describe the structure and function of organs.
S:SPS2:6:5.2. Form and Function: Students will apply skills from previous grades and diagram and label the structure of the primary components of representative organs in plants and animals.
