VT.LS. Life Science
Enduring Knowledge: All living organisms and their component cells have identifiable characteristics that allow for survival.
S7-8:30. Students demonstrate their understanding of Structure and Function-Survival Requirements by:
S7-8:30.3. Examining cells under a microscope, identifying the nucleus and explaining the relationship between genes (located in the nucleus) and traits. (DOK 2)
S7-8:31. Students demonstrate their understanding of Reproduction by:
S7-8:31.1. Explaining that cells come only from other living cells and that genes duplicate in the process of cell division producing an identical copy of the original cell. (DOK 1)
S7-8:31.2. Describing the relationship between human growth and cell division. (DOK 2)
