Florida Science Standards

   Processes of Life 

Standard 1: The student describes patterns of structure and function in living things.

1.knows that the human body is made of systems with structures and functions that are related.

2.knows how all animals depend on plants.

NatureWorks Episodes

9. The Wildlife Web I 

3.knows that living things are different but share similar structures.

NatureWorks Episodes

13. Species Diversity

4.knows that similar cells form different kinds of structures.

Standard 2: The student understands the process and importance of genetic diversity.
1.knows that many characteristics of an organism are inherited from the parents of the organism, but that other characteristics are learned from an individual's interactions with the environment.

NatureWorks Episodes

All Animals Focus Sections 

   
   How Living Things Interact with Their Environment

Standard 1: The student understands the competitive, interdependent, cyclic nature of living things in the environment.

1.knows ways that plants, animals, and protists interact.

NatureWorks Episodes

6. Marine Communities
7. Fresh Water Communities 
8. Terrestrial Communities
9. The Wildlife Web I 
10. The Wildlife  Web II
11. Decomposers and Scavengers
12. Population Dynamics
14. Niche

2.knows that living things compete in a climatic region with other living things and that structural adaptations make them fit for an environment.

NatureWorks Episodes

6. Marine Communities
7. Fresh Water Communities 
8. Terrestrial Communities
9. The Wildlife Web I 
10. The Wildlife  Web II
11. Decomposers and Scavengers
12. Population Dynamics
14. Niche

3.knows that green plants use carbon dioxide, water, and sunlight energy to turn minerals and nutrients into food for growth, maintenance, and reproduction.

NatureWorks Episodes

9. The Wildlife Web I 

4.knows that some organisms decompose dead plants and animals into simple minerals and nutrients for use by living things and thereby recycle matter.

NatureWorks Episodes

11. Decomposers and Scavengers

5.knows that animals eat plants or other animals to acquire the energy they need for survival.

NatureWorks Episodes

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

6.knows that organisms are growing, dying, and decaying and that new organisms are being produced from the materials of dead organisms.

NatureWorks Episodes

11. Decomposers and Scavengers

7.knows that variations in light, water, temperature, and soil content are largely responsible for the existence of different kinds of organisms and population densities in an ecosystem.

NatureWorks Episodes

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

Standard 2: The student understands the consequences of using limited natural resources.

1.knows that all living things must compete for Earth's limited resources; organisms best adapted to compete for the available resources will be successful and pass their adaptations (traits) to their offspring.

NatureWorks Episodes

1. Adaptation
2. Coloration
3. Natural Communication
4. Migration
12. Population Dynamics
15. Invasive Species
16. Life at Risk

2.knows that the size of a population is dependent upon the available resources within its community.

NatureWorks Episodes

12. Population Dynamics
15. Invasive Species
16. Life at Risk

3.understands that changes in the habitat of an organism may be beneficial or harmful.

NatureWorks Episodes

5. Habitat
14. Niche

16. Life at Risk
