MMSD Curriculum Standards - Planting and Harvesting

Planting and Harvesting

  • Science

    • SCI.LS1.A.1 – all organisms have external parts that they use to perform daily functions

    •  SCI.LS1.A.4 – plants and animals have both internal and external macroscopic structures that allow for growth, survival, and reproduction

    • SCI.CC1.K-2 – students recognize that patterns in the natural and human designed world can be observed, used to describe phenomena, and used as evidence

    • SCI.CC1.3-5 – students identify similarities and differences in order to sort and classify natural objects and designed products. They identify patterns related to time, including simple rates of change and cycles, and use these patterns to make predictions

    • SCI.SFP1 – students ask questions and define problems in conjunction with using crosscutting concepts and disciplinary core ideas, to make sense of phenomena and solve problems

    •  SCI.LS1.C.m – plants use energy from light to make sugars through photosynthesis. Within individual organisms, food is broken down through a series of chemical reactions that rearrange molecules and release energy

    •  SCI.LS2.A.2 – plants depend on water and light to grow. Plants depend on animals for pollination or to move their seeds around

    • SCI.LS3.A.1 – young organisms are very much, but not exactly like the parents, and also resemble other organisms of the same kind

    • SCI.LS3.B.1 – individuals of the same kind of plant or animal are recognizable as similar, but can also vary in many ways

  • Social Studies

    •  K Geography Performance Standard 5 – Explain how people’s actions can have an impact on the environment

    •  Grade 2 Political Science and Citizenship Performance Standard 2 – List ways they can participate responsibility in their community (recycling, littler pick-up, planting trees, flowers, etc.)

    • K Economics Performance Standard 2 – participate in activities that require the division of labor

    • 1 Behavioral Science Performance Standard 6 – follow rules and directions
