Earth Space Science LogoKindergarten (SCI) Science Standards
[ESS3] Earth and Human Activity

SCI-00.ESS3.01 Represent the relationship between the needs of different plants and animals (including humans) and the places they live using a model.

Clarification Statement: Examples of relationships could include that deer eat buds and leaves, therefore, they usually live in forested areas; and, grasses need sunlight so they often grow in meadows. Plants, animals, and their surroundings make up a system.
Disciplinary Core Ideas
ESS3.A: Natural Resources -Living things need water, air, and resources from the land, and they live in places that have the things they need. Humans use natural resources for everything they do.


Student Learning Targets:

Knowledge Targets

  • I can tell living things from non-living things.
  • I know the basic needs of living things.
  • I can identify where living things live.

Reasoning Targets

  • I can understand the relationship between the needs of living things and the area they live in.

Skills (Performance) Targets

  • I can use a model to show the relationship between the needs of living things and where they live.

Product Targets
