S.1.GLE.4.N: Nature of Science:
S.1.GLE.4.N.1: Calculate the density of a sample, predict its ability to float or sink in a liquid of known density, design and perform the experiment, and justify discrepancies in the experimental outcome.
S.1.GLE.4.N.3: Select proper tools to measure the mass and volume of an object and use appropriate units.
S.2.GLE.1: Changes in environmental conditions can affect the survival of individual organisms, populations, and entire species
S.2.GLE.1.IQ: Inquiry Questions:
S.2.GLE.1.IQ.1: How do ecosystem changes affect biodiversity?
S.2.GLE.1.IQ.2: How does biodiversity contribute to an ecosystem?s equilibrium?
S.2.GLE.1.N: Nature of Science:
S.2.GLE.1.N.1: Ask testable questions and make a falsifiable hypothesis about how environmental conditions affect organisms, populations, or entire species and design a method to find the answer.
S.2.GLE.1.N.3: Use models and technology tools to show what might happen to individuals, populations, and species as environmental conditions change.
S.2.GLE.2: Organisms interact with each other and their environment in various ways that create a flow of energy and cycling of matter in an ecosystem
S.2.GLE.2.IQ: Inquiry Questions:
S.2.GLE.2.IQ.1: How do different ecosystems cycle matter differently?
S.2.GLE.2.IQ.2: What ?jobs? do organisms do to facilitate the flow of energy and cycling of matter?
S.2.GLE.2.N: Nature of Science:
S.2.GLE.2.N.1: Scientists work from the assumption that the universe is a single system in which the basic rules are the same everywhere ? that energy follows the same rules in an ecosystem as it does in physic?s experiments.
S.2.GLE.2.N.3: Create and evaluate models that show how interactions create a flow of energy and a cycling of matter in an ecosystem.
S.3.GLE.1: Complex interrelationships exist between Earth?s structure and natural processes that over time are both constructive and destructive
