This packet of worksheets is perfect for teaching the 1st Grade Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) for Structure, Function, and Information Processing.
Dig in to the Next Generation Science Standards with this complete unit for the Structure, Function, and Processing Standards!
Students will develop an understanding of how plants and animals use their external parts to help them survive, grow, and meet their needs as well as how behaviors of parents and offspring help the offspring survive.
1-LS1-1. Use materials to design a solution to a human problem by mimicking how plants and/or animals use their external parts to help them survive, grow, and meet their needs.
1-LS1-2. Read texts and use media to determine patterns in behavior of parents and offspring that help offspring survive.
1-LS3-1. Make observations to construct an evidence-based account that young plants and animals are like, but not exactly like, their parents.
Disciplinary Core Ideas Covered:
LS1.A: Structure and Function
LS1.B: Growth and Development of Organisms
LS1.D: Information Processing
LS3.A: Inheritance of Traits
LS3.B: Variation of Traits
