OK.LS. LIFE SCIENCE
LS.3. Structure and Function in Living Systems - Living systems at all levels of organization demonstrate the complementary nature of structure and function. The student will engage in investigations that integrate the process standards and lead to the discovery of the following objectives:
LS.3.1. Cells are the building blocks of all organisms (both plants and animals).
LS.3.1.a. Plant and animal cells have similarities and differences (i.e., nucleus, mitochondria, cell wall, plasma membrane, chloroplast, and vacuole).
LS.4. Populations and Ecosystems - Populations consist of individuals of a species that occur together at a given place and time. All populations living together and the physical factors with which they interact compose an ecosystem. The student will engage in investigations that integrate the process standards and lead to the discovery of the following objectives:
LS.4.2. In all environments, organisms with similar needs may compete with one another for resources, including food, space, water, air, and shelter. Other relationships may be beneficial (e.g., producers/autotrophs, consumers/heterotrophs, symbiosis).
OK.SPI. SCIENCE PROCESSES AND INQUIRY
SPI.2. Classify - Classifying establishes order. Objects, organisms, and events are classified based on similarities, differences, and interrelationships. The student will accomplish these objectives to meet this process standard.
SPI.2.1. Using observable properties, place an object, organism, and/or event into a classification system (e.g., dichotomous keys, periodic table, biological hierarchy).
SPI.2.2. Identify properties by which a set of objects, organisms, or events could be ordered.
