This unit is aligned with NGSS MS-LS1-4 and Utah SEEd 7.4.2!

Covering NGSS MS-LS1-4 and Utah SEEd 7.4.2, you can be sure you’re covering the information that you need to with this unit!

NGSS MS-LS1-4: Use argument based on empirical evidence and scientific reasoning to support an explanation for how characteristic animal behaviors and specialized plant structures affect the probability of successful reproduction of animals and plants respectively. 

Utah SEEd 7.4.2: Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information about specific animal and plant adaptations and structures that affect the probability of successful reproduction. Examples of adaptations could include nest building to protect young from the cold, herding of animals to protect young from predators, vocalization of animals and colorful plumage to attract mates for breeding, bright flowers attracting butterflies that transfer pollen, flower nectar and odors that attract insects that transfer pollen, or hard shells on nuts that squirrels bury.
