Class Experience

This class was designed to be delivered in a classroom setting and provides information that supports the following New York State Next Generation Science Learning Standards.
P-LS1-1. Observe familiar plants and animals (including humans) and describe what they need to survive.
P-LS1-2. Plan and conduct an investigation to determine how familiar plants and/or animals use their external parts to help them survive in the environment.
K-ESS3-1. Use a model to represent the relationship between the needs of different plants or animals (including humans) and the places they live.
2-ESS1-1. Use information from several sources to provide evidence that Earth events can occur quickly or slowly.
3-LS2-1. Construct an argument that some animals form groups that help members survive. 
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-LS4-4. 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.
4-ESS1-1. Identify evidence from patterns in rock formations and fossils in rock layers to support an explanation for changes in a landscape over time.
