7th Grade (SCI) Life Science Standards [LS1] From Molecules to Organisms: Structures and Processes
SCI-MS.LS1.07 Develop a model to describe how food is rearranged through chemical reactions forming new molecules that support growth and/or release energy as this matter moves through an organism.
Clarification Statement: Emphasis is on describing that molecules are broken apart and put back together and that in this process,
energy is released. Disciplinary Core Ideas LS1.C: Organization for Matter and Energy
Flow in Organisms
Within individual organisms, food moves
through a series of chemical reactions in
which it is broken down and rearranged to
form new molecules, to support growth, or to
PS3.D: Energy in Chemical Processes and
Cellular respiration in plants and animals
involve chemical reactions with oxygen that
release stored energy. In these processes,
complex molecules containing carbon react
with oxygen to produce carbon dioxide and
other materials (secondary)
