Support an argument that plants get the materials they need for growth chiefly from air and water. The emphasis is on the idea that plant matter comes mostly from air and water and not the soil.
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. Environmental changes could include changes in land’s characteristics, water distribution and temperature, as well as food. A single environmental change can be evaluated. Assessment does not include climate changes or the greenhouse effect.
Generate and compare multiple possible solutions to a problem based on how well each is likely to meet the criteria and constraints of the problem.
Analyze and interpret data to provide evidence that plants and animals have traits inherited from parents and that variation of these traits exists in a group of similar organisms. Patterns are the similarities and differences in traits shared by offspring with siblings or parents. It is not just humans that must be taken into consideration. Assessment does NOT include the prediction of genetic inheritance and traits. Assessment cannot be performed on human examples.
Use evidence to support the explanation that traits can be influenced by the environment. Many factors can influence a trait’s behavior. Examples include plants that are too tall or don’t get enough water. Dogs who are fed too much can become obese.
