This product contains 70 slides that cover the basic biological evolution and diversity for elementary school students. This product also includes the 3rd grade ecosystems standard. The slides are aligned to Next Generation Science Standards but will work with any similar science standards across the world.
All information is researched-based and is my understanding and interpretation of the content.
Next Generation Standards Addressed:
3-LS4-1 Biological Evolution: Unity and Diversity
3-LS4-1.Analyze and interpret data from fossils to provide evidence of the organisms and the environments in which they lived long ago.
3-LS4-2 Biological Evolution: Unity and Diversity
3-LS4-2.Use evidence to construct an explanation for how the variations in characteristics among individuals of the same species may provide advantages in surviving, finding mates, and reproducing.
3-LS4-3 Biological Evolution: Unity and Diversity
3-LS4-3.Construct an argument with evidence that in a particular habitat some organisms can survive well, some survive less well, and some cannot survive at all.
3-LS4-4 Biological Evolution: Unity and Diversity
3-LS4-4.Make a claim about the merit of a solution to a problem caused when the environment changes and the types of plants and animals that live there may change.
3-LS2-1 Ecosystems: Interactions, Energy, and Dynamics
3-LS2-1. Construct an argument that some animals form groups that help members survive.
