The National Science Education Standards (NSES) for this Life Science topic call on students to appreciate the interrelationships among plants, animals, and their environments. In this guide, "environments" include both living (biotic) and nonliving (abiotic) components.

Science textbooks and the Internet describe organisms and their environments using common terminology, such as habitats and biomes; food webs, behavior, and populations; and so on. This web guide provides links to teacher- and student-friendly core content, inquiry, and aligned assessment websites.

Some of the examples enable teachers to develop meaningful lesson plans and activities that help students understand organisms and their environments. A team of experienced science teachers reviewed and evaluated each website before submission, and all resources correlate with the NSES.

"We all live under the same big sky." Since the beginning of time, humans have been intrigued by the objects in our sky and beyond. Take a voyage into space science where you will travel through the Internet to connect your classroom with content and activities designed to teach concepts related to these objects and changes in the sky over time.

SciGuides are a collection of thematically aligned lesson plans, simulations, and web-based resources for teachers to use with their students centered on standards-aligned science concepts.

Support your students’ natural curiosity by engaging them in observations and manipulations of objects and materials. They should describe attributes of objects. They should subject materials to mixing, heating, freezing, stretching, bending, and anything else they can safely do. In the process they will be recognizing differences and similarities and building vocabulary. They will be developing the ability to categorize.

SciGuides are a collection of thematically aligned lesson plans, simulations, and web-based resources for teachers to use with their students centered on standards-aligned science concepts.

Young children are fascinated as they watch lizards, frogs, butterflies and other small animals develop through life stages, from being born to adult to death. Some of them experience pets at home, while others visit zoos and learn through online resources. Gardening offers an opportunity to observe stages of growth in plants and presents another view of the diversity of life. Characteristics of living organisms, their stages of life and the diversity around us are major concepts developed within this guide.

Elementary students learn about growth and development and characteristics of organisms by observing plants and animals that are part of their immediate environment. Through these observations and experiences they begin to notice and develop an understanding that offspring resemble their parents; that characteristics (traits that are observed) are diverse even within same species; and that patterns and variations occur at every level of life.

This foundation provides the basic building blocks that are instrumental to the further understanding of genes, traits, heredity and reproductions that they will study in later grades.

All resources within this guide correspond to the National Science Education Standards and have been reviewed and evaluated by a team of experienced science teachers, taking into account the needs and concerns of elementary school teachers and students.

Eat smart, move more. To younger school-age kids, learning about nutrition is all about the food. But that's just part of the story. Nutrition education is science-based, addressing how food turns into you - and how smart food choices can help you be your personal best! Physical activity often fits into the message. What is food for living things? How is food digested so it can provide energy and help you grow and stay healthy? What are nutrients, what do they do, and where do they come from?
