I.1.c: Diagram the arrangement of particles in the physical states of matter (i.e., solid, liquid, gas).
I.2.b: Use observations to predict the relative density of various solids and liquids.
I.2.c: Calculate the density of various solids and liquids.
I.2.d: Describe the relationship between mass and volume as it relates to density.
II.1.b: Calculate the density of earth materials (e.g., rocks, water, air).
III.1.b: Observe and distinguish the cell wall, cell membrane, nucleus, chloroplast, and cytoplasm of cells.
III.1.c: Differentiate between plant and animal cells based on cell wall and cell membrane.
III.1.d: Model the cell processes of diffusion and osmosis and relate this motion to the motion of particles.
III.1.e: Gather information to report on how the basic functions of organisms are carried out within cells (e.g., extract energy from food, remove waste, produce their own food).
III.2.a: Order the levels of organization from simple to complex (e.g., cell, tissue, organ, system, organism).
III.2.b: Match a particular structure to the appropriate level (e.g., heart to organ, cactus to organism, muscle to tissue).
III.2.c: Relate the structure of an organ to its component parts and the larger system of which it is a part.
III.2.d: Describe how the needs of organisms at the cellular level for food, air, and waste removal are met by tissues and organs (e.g., lungs provide oxygen to cells, kidneys remove wastes from cells).
IV.1.a: Distinguish between inherited and acquired traits.
IV.1.b: Contrast the exchange of genetic information in sexual and asexual reproduction (e.g., number of parents, variation of genetic material).
IV.1.c: Cite examples of organisms that reproduce sexually (e.g., rats, mosquitoes, salmon, sunflowers) and those that reproduce asexually (e.g., hydra, planaria, bacteria, fungi, cuttings from house plants).
IV.1.d: Compare inherited structural traits of offspring and their parents.
IV.2.b: Cite examples of traits that provide an advantage for survival in one environment but not other environments.
V.1.c: Defend the importance of observation in scientific classification.
V.1.d: Demonstrate that there are many ways to classify things.
V.2.a: Using a provided classification scheme, classify things (e.g., shells, leaves, rocks, bones, fossils, weather, clouds, stars, planets).
V.2.b: Develop a classification system based on observed structural characteristics.
V.2.c: Generalize rules for classification.
V.3.a: Identify types of organisms that are not classified as either plant or animal.
V.3.c: Use a classification key or field guide to identify organisms.
