1 Grades K-3 Reference Specific Learning Outcomes Wetlands Rainforest It is expected that students will: observe and identify similarities and differences in the needs of living Organisms, Migration, Animal Adaptations, Food Chains, Web Game describe different ways that plants and animals meet their needs Organisms, Migration, Animal Adaptations, Food Chains, Web Game describe the different ways that humans and other living move to meet their needs identify and describe common characteristics of humans and other animals, and identify variations that make each person and animal unique compare life s of familiar animals and classify them according to the similarities and differences of their life s describe the changes in humans as they grow, and contrast human growth to that of other organisms observe and describe changes that occur through the life of a flowering plant observe and describe changes in the appearance and activity of an organism as it goes through its life Organisms, Migration: of other living Organisms, Migration: use as of other animals Organisms, Migration: life Organisms, Migration, Animal Adaptations: use for contrasting organisms Cranberry, Labrador Tea, Leatherleaf: life Green Frog: life movie, Organism screens (life ) describe changes Organism Screens, Organism Screens, Organisms: of other living Organisms: use as of other living Organisms: life Organisms: use for contrasting organisms Bromeliad, Cecropia, Heliconia, Mahogany, Mistletoe, Piper, Strangler Fig, Water Vine: life Beetle movie shows larval and adult stages, Organism screens (life ) describes changes

2 Grades K-3 Reference Specific Learning Outcomes Wetlands Rainforest investigate and describe changes that occur on a daily basis in the Organisms, Migration: Organisms: behavior characteristics, behaviours, and location of living behavior investigate and describe changes that occur in seasonal s in the characteristics, behaviours, and location of living identify constant and changing traits in organisms as they grow and develop describe features of natural and human-made environments that support the health and growth of some familiar animals describe ways in which plants are important to living and the environment Animal Adaptations, Habitat Organisms, Migration: life Migration: life Organisms (plants) Producers, Food Chains, Food Web Game, Conservation Howler Monkey: food source, Humming bird & Red-eyed Tree Frog: life Organisms: life Habitat, Niches Organisms (plants),

3 Grades 4-6 Reference Specific Learning Outcomes Wetlands Rainforest Digital Frog 2 It is expected that students will: compare the external features and behavioural patterns of animals that help them thrive in different kinds of places compare the structural features of plants that enable them to thrive in different kinds of places describe the role of a common classification system for living distinguish between vertebrates and invertebrates compare the characteristics of mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians and fishes compare characteristics of common arthropods identify characteristics and adaptations that enable birds and insects to fly predict how the removal of a plant or animal population affects the rest of the community relate habitat loss to the endangerment or extinction of plants and animals Animal Adaptations, Organisms & Migration: behaviour Use plant Organism screens as Decomposers, Food Chains, Organisms, Migration Organism screens featuring animals and insects Use Organisms & Migration for Caddisfly, Damselfly, Daphnia, Dragonfly, Giant Water Beetle, Mosquito, Waterboatman Use bird & insect Organism screens, and Migration for Conservation, Endangered Wetlands Organisms: behaviour Use plant Organism screens as, Botany (with teacher support) Organisms Organism screens featuring animals and insects Use Organisms for Ant, Beetle, Butterfly, Moth, Scorpion, Spider, Termites Use bird & insect Organism screens for Tree Fall Gaps, Succession, Climate Tree Fall Gaps, Succession

4 Grades 4-6 Reference Specific Learning Outcomes Wetlands Rainforest Digital Frog 2 (to be used as a comparison) It is expected that students will: describe how a variety of animals are able to meet their basic needs in their habitat classify organisms according to their role in a food chain describe the structure and function of the major organs of the digestive, excretory, respiratory, circulatory and nervous systems demonstrate how the skeletal, muscular and nervous systems work together to produce movement Animal Adaptations, Organisms, Migration Decomposers, Food Chains, Web Energy, Organisms, Migrations, Food Web Game Organisms, Niches, Biodiversity Organisms, Dependency Types, Food, Habitat, Seed Dispersal, Pollination, Respiratory, Circulatory, Digestive, Excretory, and Nervous systems are found in the Anatomy section Anatomy section: Musculoskeletal and Nervous systems describe the role of the skin Anatomy section: The Skin describe the body s defences, such as tears, saliva, skin, certain blood cells, and stomach secretions, against infections Anatomy section: Circulatory system, Blood

5 Grades 7-9 Reference Specific Learning Outcomes Wetlands Rainforest Digital Frog 2 (to be used as a comparison) It is expected students will: identify the roles of producers, consumers and decomposers in a local ecosystem, and describe both their diversity and their interactions explain that growth and reproduction depend on cell division explain structural and functional relationships between and among cells, tissues, organs and systems in the human body relate the needs and functions of various cells and organs to the needs and functions of the human organism as a whole describe the basic factors that affect the functions and efficiency of the human respiratory, circulatory, digestive, excretory, and nervous systems describe of the interdependence of various systems of the human body illustrate and describe the basic process of cell division, including what happens to the cell membrane and the contents of the nucleus Decomposers, Food Chains, Web Energy, Food Web Game, Photosynthesis, Organisms, Migration Organisms, Botany: Fungi Cellular Division Anatomy section Anatomy section Anatomy section: respiratory, circulatory, digestive, excretory, and nervous systems Anatomy section has links between systems to show how they are interdependent Cellular division: mitosis, meiosis

6 Grades 7-9 Reference Specific Learning Outcomes Wetlands Rainforest Digital Frog 2 (to be used as a comparison) It is expected students will: describe how energy is supplied to, and how it flows though, a food web describe how matter is red in an ecosystem through interactions among plants, animals, fungi and microorganisms describe interactions between biotic and abiotic factors in an ecosystem identify signs of ecological succession in a local ecosystem Food Chain, Web Energy, Decomposers, Food Web Game, Organisms, Migration Food Chain, Web Energy, Decomposers, Food Web Game, Organisms, Migration, Nutrient Cycles, Photosynthesis Nutrient Cycles, Photosynthesis, Web Energy, Food Chains Productivity, Soils & Decomposition, Organisms Succession

7 Grades Reference Specific Learning Outcomes Wetlands Rainforest Digital Frog 2 It is expected students will: analyse and explain the life of a representative organism from each kingdom, including a representative virus describe in detail mitosis and meiosis identify chemical elements and compounds that are commonly found in living systems identify the role of some compounds, such as waster, glucose, and ATP, commonly found in living systems use organisms found in a local or regional ecosystem to demonstrate an understand of fundamental principles of taxonomy illustrate the cycling of matter through biotic and abiotic components of an ecosystem by tracking carbon, nitrogen and oxygen Organisms & Migration: life Nutrient s, Photosynthesis Photosynthesis Organisms & Migration: taxonomy Nutrient s, Photosynthesis Organisms: life Water Cycle, Soils & Decomposition, Productivity Cellular Division: mitosis & meiosis
