Life Science for Early Childhood
Characteristics and Structure of Life
Identify common needs (e.g., food, air, water) of familiar living things.
Diversity and Interdependence of Life
Observe and begin to recognize the ways that environments support life by meeting the unique needs of each organism (e.g., plant/soil, birds/air, fish/water).
Match familiar adult family members, plants and animals with their young (e.g., horse/colt, cow/calf).
Recognize physical differences among the same class of people, plants or animals (e.g., dogs come in many sizes and colors).
