CLIP: In Green Obscurity
3.0 Life Science
A. Diversity of Life
- Explain the idea that in any particular environment, some kinds of plants and animals survive well, some less well, and some cannot survive at all.
- Explain that the survival of individual organisms and entire populations can be affected by sudden (flood, Tsunami) or slow (global warming, air pollution) changes in the environment.
- Explain ways that individuals and groups of organisms interact with each other and their environment.
- Explain that changes in an organism’s habitat are sometimes beneficial to it and sometimes harmful.
- Give reasons supporting the fact that the number of organisms an environment can support depends on the physical conditions and resources available.
- Explain that populations increase or decrease relative to the availability of resources and the conditions of the environment.
- Identify and describe factors that could limit populations within any environment, such as disease, introduction of a nonnative species, depletion of resources, etc.
6.0 Environmental Science
B. Environmental Issues
Back to top
- Recognize and describe that consequences may occur when Earth’s natural resources are used.
- Explain how human activities, such as recycling centers, native plantings in schoolyard habitats, and good farming practices may have positive consequences on the natural environment.
- Explain how human activities such as damage or destruction done to habitats; air, water, land and/or noise pollution, may have a negative consequence
