Next Generation Science Standards

NGSS.MS-LS. LIFE SCIENCE
MS-LS1. From Molecules to Organisms: Structures and Processes - Students who demonstrate understanding can:
MS-LS1.DCI. Disciplinary Core Ideas
LS1.B: Growth and Development of Organisms
LS1.B:2. Plants reproduce in a variety of ways, sometimes depending on animal behavior and specialized features for reproduction. (MS-LS1-4)
MS-LS3. Heredity: Inheritance and Variation of Traits - Students who demonstrate understanding can:
MS-LS3-2. Develop and use a model to describe why asexual reproduction results in offspring with identical genetic information and sexual reproduction results in offspring with genetic variation.
MS-LS3.DCI. Disciplinary Core Ideas
LS1.B: Growth and Development of Organisms
LS1.B:1. Organisms reproduce, either sexually or asexually, and transfer their genetic information to their offspring. (secondary to MS-LS3-2)
LS3.B: Variation of Traits
LS3.B:1. In sexually reproducing organisms, each parent contributes half of the genes acquired (at random) by the offspring. Individuals have two of each chromosome and hence two alleles of each gene, one acquired from each parent. These versions may be identical or may differ from each other. (MS-LS3-2)
