[LS1] From Molecules to Organisms: Structures and Processes

SCI-00.LS1.01 Describe patterns, through observation, of what plants and animals (including humans) need to survive.

Clarification Statement: Examples of patterns could include that animals need to take in food but plants make food; the different kinds of food needed by different types of animals; the requirement of plants to have light; and, that all living things need water.
Disciplinary Core Ideas
