SCI.LS1.C: Organization for Matter and Energy Flow in Organisms
SCI.LS1.C.5: Food provides animals with the materials and energy they need for body repair, growth, warmth, and motion. Plants acquire material for growth chiefly from air, water, and process matter, and obtain energy from sunlight, which is used to maintain conditions necessary for survival.
SCI.LS2.A: Interdependent Relationships in Ecosystems
SCI.LS2.A.5: The food of almost any animal can be traced back to plants. Organisms are related in food webs in which some animals eat plants for food and other animals eat the animals that eat plants, while decomposers restore some materials back to the soil.
SCI.PS1.A: Structures and Properties of Matter
SCI.PS1.A.5: Matter exists as particles that are too small to see. Matter is always conserved even if it seems to disappear. Measurements of a variety of observable properties can be used to identify particular materials.
SCI.PS1.B: Chemical Reactions
SCI.PS1.B.5.i: Chemical reactions that occur when substances are mixed can be identified by the emergence of substances with different properties.
SCI.PS1.B.5.ii: In chemical reactions the total mass remains the same.
SCI.PS3.D: Energy in Chemical Processes and Everyday Life
SCI.PS3.D.5.i: Plants capture energy from sunlight which can be used as fuel or food.
SCI.PS3.D.5.ii: Stored energy in food or fuel can be converted to useable energy.
SCI.ESS1.B: Earth and the Solar System
SCI.ESS1.B.5: The Earth’s orbit and rotation, and the orbit of the moon around the Earth cause observable patterns.
SCI.ESS3.C: Human Impacts on Earth Systems
SCI.ESS3.C.5: Societal activities have had major effects on the land, ocean, atmosphere, and even outer space. Societal activities can also help protect Earth’s resources and environments.
