This resource supports science standards for grades 4-6. This assignment is based on the Virginia Standards of Learning Sci3.10a: The student will investigate and understand that natural events and human influences can affect the survival of species. Key concepts include the interdependency of plants and animals. Sci3.10b: The student will investigate and understand that natural events and human influences can affect the survival of species. Key concepts include the effects of human activity on the quality of air, water, and habitat. Sci3.10c: The student will investigate and understand that natural events and human influences can affect the survival of species. Key concepts include the effects of fire, flood, disease, and erosion on organisms. Sci4.4: The student will investigate and understand basic plant anatomy and life processes. Key concepts include the structures of typical plants (leaves, stems, roots, and flowers), processes and structures involved with reproduction (pollination, stamen, pistil, sepal, embryo, spore, and seed), photosynthesis (sunlight, chlorophyll, water, carbon dioxide, oxygen, and sugar), and dormancy. Sci4.5: The student will investigate and understand how plants and animals in an ecosystem interact with one another and the nonliving environment. Sci5.6: The student will investigate and understand characteristics of the ocean environment b) physical characteristics (depth, salinity, major currents).
