     Science-Grade 4-Life Sciences

      3c Many plants depend on animals for pollination and seed dispersal, while animals depend on plants for food and shelter.
 
 

     Science-Grade 4-Life Sciences

     2b Producers and consumers (herbivores, carnivores, omnivores, and decomposers) are related in food chains and food webs, 
     and may compete with each other for resources in an
     ecosystem. 
 
 

     Science-Grade 4-Life Sciences

     3a Ecosystems can be characterized in terms of their living and nonliving components
 
 

     Science-Grade 6-Earth Sciences

     5a Energy entering ecosystems as sunlight is transferred by producers into chemical energy through photosynthesis, and then from organism to 
     organism in food webs. 
 
 

     Science-Grade 6-Earth Sciences

     5c Populations of organisms can be categorized by the functions they serve in an ecosystem. 
 
 

     Science-Grade 6-Earth Sciences

     5e The number and types of organisms an ecosystem can support depends on the resources available and abiotic factors, such as quantity of light 
     and water, range of temperatures, and soil
     composition. 
 
 

     Science-Grade 9 Grade 10 Grade 11 Grade 12-Life Sciences

     6b How to analyze changes in an ecosystem resulting from changes in climate, human activity, introduction of non-native species, or changes in
     population size. 
 
 

     Science-Grade 9 Grade 10 Grade 11 Grade 12-Life Sciences

     6c How fluctuations in population size in an ecosystem are determined by the relative rates of birth, immigration, emigration, and death. 
 
 

     Science-Grade 9 Grade 10 Grade 11 Grade 12-Life Sciences

     6d How water, carbon, and nitrogen cycle between abiotic resources and organic matter in the ecosystem and how oxygen cycles via photosynthesis and   
     respiration.
 
 

     Science-Grade 9 Grade 10 Grade 11 Grade 12-Life Sciences

     6e A vital part of an ecosystem is the stability of its producers and decomposers. 
 
 

     Science-Grade 9 Grade 10 Grade 11 Grade 12-Investigation and Experimentation

     1i Analyze the locations, sequences, or time intervals of natural phenomena (e.g., relative ages of rocks, locations of planets over time, and succession 
     of species in an ecosystem).
