Wisconsin Academic Standards
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.C. Organization for Matter and Energy Flow in Organisms
SCI.LS1.C.5. Food provides animals with the materials and energy they need for body repair, growth, warmth, and motion. Plants acquire material for growth chiefly from air, water, and process matter, and obtain energy from sunlight, which is used to maintain conditions necessary for survival.
SCI.PS. Disciplinary Core Idea: Physical Science (PS)
SCI.PS3. Students use science and engineering practices, crosscutting concepts, and an understanding of energy to make sense of phenomena and solve problems.
SCI.PS3.D. Energy in Chemical Processes and Everyday Life
SCI.PS3.D.4,5.1. Plants capture energy from sunlight which can be used as fuel or food.
