3-LS3-1: Provide evidence, including through the analysis of data, that plants and animals have traits inherited from parents and that variation of these traits exist in a group of similar organisms.
3-LS3-2: Distinguish between inherited characteristics and those characteristics that result from a direct interaction with the environment. Give examples of characteristics of living organisms that are influenced by both inheritance and the environment.
3-LS4-2: Use evidence to construct an explanation for how the variations in characteristics among individuals within the same species may provide advantages to these individuals in their survival and reproduction.
3-LS4-3: Construct an argument with evidence that in a particular environment some organisms can survive well, some survive less well, and some cannot survive.
3.3-5-ETS1-2: Generate several possible solutions to a given design problem. Compare each solution based on how well each is likely to meet the criteria and constraints of the design problem.
3.3-5-ETS1-4(MA): Gather information using various informational resources on possible solutions to a design problem. Present different representations of a design solution.
