IN.CS. Content Standards
7.3. Life Science
7.3.4. Compare and contrast similarities and differences among specialized sub cellular components within plant and animal cells (including organelles and cell walls that perform essential functions and give cells shape and structure).

IN.PS. Process Standards
PS.1. The Nature of Science: Students gain scientific knowledge by observing the natural and constructed world, performing and evaluating investigations, and communicating their findings. These principles should guide student work and be integrated into the curriculum along with the content standards on a daily basis.
PS.1.2. Plan and carry out investigation—often over a period of several class lessons—as a class, in small groups or independently.
PS.1.3. Collect quantitative data with appropriate tools or technologies and use appropriate units to label numerical data.
