Use argument supported by evidence for how the body is a system of interacting subsystems composed of groups of cells.

NGSS MS-LS1-4. Use an 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.


Construct a scientific explanation based on evidence for how environmental and genetic factors influence the growth of organisms.


MS-LS1-6. Construct a scientific explanation based on evidence for the role of photosynthesis in the cycling of matter and the flow of energy into and out of organisms.


Develop a model to describe how food is rearranged through chemical reactions forming new molecules that support growth and/or release energy as this matter moves through an organism
