THE LIVING WORLD- Organisms, Evolution, and Interdependence

aa. Identify, model, and explain the structure and function (e.g., cells, tissues, organs, systems) of organisms (e.g. plants, animals, microbes), both as individual entities and as components of larger systems;

bb. Identify and use anatomical structures to classify organisms (e.g., plants, animals, fungi);

cc. Describe, model, and explain the principles of the interdependence of all systems that support life (e.g., food chains, webs, life cycles, energy levels, populations, oxygen-carbon dioxide cycles), and apply them to local, regional, and global systems; and
