Texas TEKS covered:

4th Grade
(10) Organisms and environments. The student knows that organisms undergo similar life processes and have structures that help them survive within their environment. The student is expected to:
(A) explore how adaptations enable organisms to survive in their environment such as comparing birds' beaks and leaves on plants;
(B) demonstrate that some likenesses between parents and offspring are inherited, passed from generation to generation such as eye color in humans or shapes of leaves in plants. Other likenesses are learned such as table manners or reading a book and seals balancing balls on their noses; and
(C) explore, illustrate, and compare life cycles in living organisms such as butterflies, beetles, radishes, or lima beans.
5th Grade
(10) Organisms and environments. The student knows that organisms undergo similar life processes and have structures that help them survive within their environments. The student is expected to:
(A) compare the structures and functions of different species that help them live and survive such as hooves on prairie animals or webbed feet in aquatic animals;
(B) differentiate between inherited traits of plants and animals such as spines on a cactus or shape of a beak and learned behaviors such as an animal learning tricks or a child riding a bicycle; and
(C) describe the differences between complete and incomplete metamorphosis of insects.
