Science Standards: Ocean Discovery In-School Field Trip

You may use your in-school field trip to introduce a new unit or as a review before an assessment. We cover the following list of Florida Science Standards during your Ocean Discovery in-school field trip. You may click on your grade, and copy & paste the standards into your lesson plans.

SC.K.N.1.2: Make observations of the natural world and know that they are descriptors collected using the five senses.
SC.K.L.14.1: Recognize the five senses and related body parts.
SC.K.L.14.3: Observe plants and animals, describe how they are alike and how they are different in the way they look and in the things they do.
SC.K.L.14.2: Recognize that some books and other media portray animals and plants with characteristics and behaviors they do not have in real life.
SC.K.N.1.5: Recognize that learning can come from careful observation.

SC.1.L.14.1: Make observations of living things and their environment using the five senses.
SC.1.L.14.3: Differentiate between living and nonliving things.
SC.1.L.16.1: Make observations that plants and animals closely resemble their parents, but variations exist among individuals within a population.
SC.1.L.17.1: Through observation, recognize that all plants and animals, including humans, need the basic necessities of air, water, food, and space.
SC.1.N.1.2: Using the five senses as tools, make careful observations, describe objects in terms of number, shape, texture, size, weight, color, and motion, and compare their observations with others.

SC.2.N.1.5: Distinguish between empirical observation (what you see, hear, feel, smell, or taste) and ideas or inferences (what you think).
SC.2.L.16.1: Observe and describe major stages in the life cycles of plants and animals, including beans and butterflies.
SC.2.L.17.1: Compare and contrast the basic needs that all living things, including humans, have for survival.
SC.2.L.17.2: Recognize and explain that living things are found all over Earth, but each is only able to live in habitats that meet its basic needs.
SC.2.E.6.2: Describe how small pieces of rock and dead plant and animal parts can be the basis of soil and explain the process by which soil is formed.

SC.3.L.15.1: Classify animals into major groups (mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish, arthropods, vertebrates and invertebrates, those having live births and those which lay eggs) according to their physical characteristics and behaviors.
SC.3.17.1: Describe how animals and plants respond to changing seasons.

SC.4.L.16.3: Recognize that animal behaviors may be shaped by heredity and learning.
SC.4.L.16.4: Compare and contrast the major stages in the life cycles of Florida plants and animals, such as those that undergo incomplete and complete metamorphosis, and flowering and nonflowering seed-bearing plants.
SC.4.L.17.2: Explain that animals, including humans, cannot make their own food and that when animals eat plants or other animals, the energy stored in the food source is passed to them.
SC.4.L.17.1: Compare the seasonal changes in Florida plants and animals to those in other regions of the country.
SC.4.L.17.4: Recognize ways plants and animals, including humans, can impact the environment.
SC.4.L.16.2: Explain that although characteristics of plants and animals are inherited, some characteristics can be affected by the environment.

SC.5.L.15.1: Describe how, when the environment changes, differences between individuals allow some plants and animals to survive and reproduce while others die or move to new locations.
SC.5.L.17.1: Compare and contrast adaptations displayed by animals and plants that enable them to survive in different environments such as life cycles variations, animal behaviors and physical characteristics.

SC.6.L.15.1: Analyze and describe how and why organisms are classified according to shared characteristics with emphasis on the Linnaean system combined with the concept of Domains
