      Next Generation Science Standards

      • NGSS K-LS1-1.Use observations to describe patterns of what plants and animals (including humans) need to survive.
      • NGSS K-ESS2-2. Construct an argument supported by evidence for how plants and animals (including humans) can change the environment to meet their needs.
      • NGSS K-ESS3-1. Use a model to represent the relationship between the needs of different plants and animals (including humans) and the places they live.
      • NGSS 2-LS4-1 Make observations of plants and animals to compare the diversity of life in different habitats.
      • NGSS 3-LS3-2. Use evidence to support the explanation that traits can be influenced by the environment.
      • NGSS 3-LS4-2. Use evidence to construct an explanation for how the variations in characteristics among individuals of the same species may provide advantages in surviving, finding mates, and reproducing.
      • NGSS 3-LS4-3. Construct an argument with evidence that in a particular habitat some organisms can survive well, some survive less well, and some cannot survive at all.
      • NGSS 3-ESS2-1. Represent data in tables and graphical displays to describe typical weather conditions expected during a particular season.
      • NGSS 3-ESS2-2. Obtain and combine information to describe climates in different regions of the world.

      International Society for Technology in Education Standards

      • ISTE-S.6.b Students create original works or responsibly repurpose or remix digital resources into new creations.

      Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

      • CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.1.G.A.3 Partition circles and rectangles into two and four equal shares, describe the shares using the words halves, fourths, and quarters, and use the phrases half of, fourth of, and quarter of. Describe the whole as two of, or four of the shares. Understand for these examples that decomposing into more equal shares creates smaller shares.
      • CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.1.MD.A.2 Express the length of an object as a whole number of length units, by laying multiple copies of a shorter object (the length unit) end to end; understand that the length measurement of an object is the number of same-size length units that span it with no gaps or overlaps.
      • CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.2.MD.A.3 Estimate lengths using units of inches, feet, centimeters, and meters.
