New Hampshire College and Career Ready Standards
NH.LS1. Life Science: All living organisms have identifiable structures and characteristics that allow for survival (organisms, populations, and species).
S:LS1:6:2.4. Living Things and Organization: Students will recognize and describe the hierarchical organization of living systems, including cells, tissues, organs, organ systems, whole organisms, and ecosystems.
NH.LS2. Life Science: Energy flows and matter recycles through an ecosystem.
S:LS2:6:3.1. Recycling of Materials: Students will define a population as all individuals of a species that exist together at a given place and time; and explain that all populations living together in a community, along with the physical factors with which they interact, compose an ecosystem.
NH.LS3. Life Science: Groups of organisms show evidence of change over time (e.g. evolution, natural selection, structures, behaviors, and biochemistry).
S:LS3:6:1.2. Change: Students will explain how changes in environmental conditions can affect the survival of individual organisms and the entire species.
