Washington DC Standards

DC.7.3. Biological Classification: Broad Concept: Similarities are used to classify organisms since they may be used to infer the degree of relatedness among organisms. As a basis for understanding this concept, students:
7.3.1. Recognize and describe that a key distinction among organisms is between autotrophs, such as green plants (which use energy from sunlight to make their own food), and heterotrophs, such as animals and fungi (which consume other organisms as food and harvest energy from them).
DC.7.4. Cell Biology: Broad Concept: All living things are composed of cells, from just one to many quadrillions, whose details usually are visible only through a microscope. As a basis for understanding this concept, students:
7.4.5. Know intracellular bodies with specific functions are called organelles. Describe that important among them are mitochondria which liberate energy for the work that cells do, and chloroplasts which capture sunlight energy for photosynthesis.
7.4.8. Describe how the most basic chemical functions of organisms, such as extracting energy from food and getting rid of wastes, are started or carried out completely within the cell.
DC.7.8. Ecology: Broad Concept: Organisms in ecosystems exchange energy and nutrients among themselves and with the physical environment. As a basis for understanding this concept, students:
7.8.2. Describe how two types of organisms may interact in a competitive or cooperative relationship, such as producer/consumer, predator/prey, parasite/hosts, or as symbionts.
7.8.3. Illustrate and explain how plants use the energy from light to make simple sugars, and more complex molecules, from carbon dioxide and water through a process called photosynthesis. Understand this produces food that can be used immediately or stored for later use.
7.8.5. Describe how organisms that eat plants break down the plant structures to produce the materials and energy that they need to survive, and in turn, other organisms consume them.
DC.CC.6-8.RST. Reading Standards for Literacy in Science and Technical Subjects
Craft and Structure
6-8.RST.4. Determine the meaning of symbols, key terms, and other domain-specific words and phrases as they are used in a specific scientific or technical context relevant to grades 6-8 texts and topics.
