West Virginia Science Standards

   Grade 3
understand that the study of living and non-living objects in the natural world integrates living organisms, earth materials, and physical properties of matter 

NatureWorks Episodes

5. Habitat
6. Marine Communities
7. Fresh Water Communities
8. Terrestrial Communities
9. The Wildlife Web I 
10. The Wildlife  Web II

identify the structures of living things, including their systems, and explain their functions (e.g., roots absorb water, circulatory system to move materials) - systems 

NatureWorks Episodes

9. The Wildlife Web I 
10. The Wildlife  Web II

relate the structures and behaviors of living organisms to the environment in which  they live (e.g., beaks and feet in birds, seed dispersal, camouflage, different types
of flowers -systems 

NatureWorks Episodes

1. Adaptation
2. Coloration
3. Natural Communication
4. Migration

identify relationships among organisms in an ecosystem (e.g., sequencing food chains, behavior, adaptations, factors that effect populations, predator-prey relationships -systems 

NatureWorks Episodes

9. The Wildlife Web I 
10. The Wildlife  Web II
11. Decomposers and Scavengers
12. Population Dynamics

observe, measure, and record changes in living things (e.g., growth and 
development, variations within species) - changes 

NatureWorks Episodes

13. Species Diversity
   Grade 4

identify the structures of living things including their systems, and explain their function (e.g., skeletons, teeth structures, and leaves) - systems 

NatureWorks Episodes

1. Adaptation
2. Coloration
3. Natural Communication
4. Migration

describe the different characteristics of plants and animals which help them to survive in different niches and environments 

NatureWorks Episodes

1. Adaptation
2. Coloration
3. Natural Communication
4. Migration
14. Niche

describe the environments and conditions which are needed for the survival of living things (e.g., water, sunlight, soil, food, climate, correct habitat, environmental barriers) - systems 

NatureWorks Episodes

5. Habitat
6. Marine Communities
7. Fresh Water Communities
8. Terrestrial Communities

review relationships among organisms in an ecosystem (e.g., fresh water, salt water, and terrestrial organisms and habitats, climate as related to biomes, food webs) - systems 

NatureWorks Episodes

5. Habitat
6. Marine Communities
7. Fresh Water Communities
8. Terrestrial Communities

associate the behaviors of living things to external and internal influences (e.g., hunger, climate,  seasons) - systems 

NatureWorks Episodes

1. Adaptation
2. Coloration
3. Natural Communication
4. Migration

describe environmental barriers to the migration of animals - changes

   Grade 5

identify and explain common energy transformations and cycles of matter (e.g., photosynthesis, water, carbon dioxide, nitrogen, energy conversions including fuels) systems 

NatureWorks Episodes

9. The Wildlife Web I

explain how the different characteristics of plants and animals help them to survive in different niches and environments (e.g., adaptations, natural selection, extinction) - systems 

NatureWorks Episodes

1. Adaptation

NatureWorks Episodes

9. The Wildlife Web I 
10. The Wildlife  Web II
11. Decomposers and Scavengers
   Grade 6
