C. Collect data from observations using simple equipment such as hand lenses…and non- standard measurement tools.
D. Record and organize data using pictures, numbers, and words.
(b)4. Scientific investigation and reasoning. The student uses age-appropriate tools and models to investigate the natural world. The student is expected to:
A. Collect, record, and compare information using tools, including…hand lenses…collecting nets, and notebooks.
(b)9. Organisms and environments. The student knows that living organisms have basic needs that must be met for them to survive within their environment. The student is expected to:
A. Identify the basic needs of plants and animals.
C. Compare and give examples of the ways living organisms depend on each other and on their environments such as food chains within a garden, park, beach, lake and wooded area.
(b)10. Organisms and environments. The student knows that organisms resemble their parents and have structures and processes that help them survive within their environments. The student is expected to:
B. Observe, record, and compare how the physical characteristics of plants help them meet their basic needs such as stems carry water throughout the plant.
