1 District of Columbia Public Schools Essential Knowledge and Skills for Science (Grade 7) SCIENCE, Grade 7: Life Science Content Standard 2: Understand how living things function and how they interact with one another and their environment. The student should know that: One of the most general distinctions among organisms is between plants, which use sunlight to make their own food, and animals, which consume energy-rich foods. Some kinds of organisms, many of them microscopic, cannot be neatly classified as wither plants or animals. Animals and plants have a great variety of body plans and internal structures that contribute to their being able to make or find food and reproduce.

2 (Continued) Animals and plants have a great variety of body plans and internal structures that contribute to their being able to make or find food and reproduce. Similarities among organisms are found in internal anatomical features, which can be used to infer the degree of relatedness among organisms. In classifying organisms, biologists consider details of internal and external structures to be more important than behavior or general appearance.

3 In sexual reproduction, a single specialized cell from a female merges with a specialized cell from a male. As the fertilized egg, carrying genetic information from each parent, multiples to form the complete organism with about a trillion cells, the same genetic information is copied in each cell.

Different body tissues and organs are made up of different kinds of cells. The cells are similar tissues and organs in other animals are similar to those in human beings but differ somewhat from cells found in plants Within cells, many of the basic functions of organisms such as extracting energy from food and getting rid of waste are carried out. The way in which cells function is similar in all living organisms.

5 Like other animals, human beings have body systems for obtaining and providing energy, defense, reproduction, and the coordination of body functions. For the body to use food for energy and building materials, the food must first be digested into molecules that are absorbed and transported to cells.

6 To burn food for the release of energy stored in it, oxygen must be supplied to cells and carbon dioxide removed. Lungs take in oxygen for the combustion of food and they eliminate the carbon dioxide produced. The urinary system disposes of dissolved waste molecules, the intestinal tract removes solid wastes and the skin and lungs rid the body of heat energy. The circulatory system moves all of these substances to or from cells where they are needed or produced, responding to changing demands.

8 In all environments freshwater, marine, forest, desert, grassland, mountain, and others organisms with similar needs may compete with one another for resources, including food, space, water, air, and shelter. In any particular environment, the growth and survival of organisms depend on the physical conditions. One of the most general distinctions among organisms is between plants, which use sunlight to make their own food, and animals, which consume energy-rich foods. Some kinds of organisms, many of them microscopic, cannot be neatly classified as either plants or animals.

9 Food provides the fuel and the building material for all organisms. Plants use the energy from light to make sugars from carbon dioxide and water. This food can be used immediately or stored for later use. Organisms that eat plants break down the plant structures to produce the materials and energy they need to survive. Then they are consumed by other organisms.

10 Over a long time, matter is transferred from one organism to another repeatedly and between organisms and their physical environment. As in all material systems, the total amount of matter remains constant, even though its form and location change. Energy can change from one form to another in living things. Animals get energy from oxidizing their food, releasing some of its energy as heat. Almost all food energy comes originally from sunlight.

11 All organisms, including humans are part of and depend on two main interconnected global food webs. One includes microscopic ocean plants, the animals that feed on them, and finally the animals that feed on those animals. The other web includes land plants, the animals that feed on them and so forth. The cycles continue indefinitely because organisms decompose after death and return food material to the environment.
