Science Understandings
Integrated Science, a year long course for eighth graders
Evolutionary Theory
Although species my look very different, the similarities become
apparent when analyzing the internal structures of organisms
Although species my look very different, the similarities become
apparent when analyzing their common ancestry (fossil record)
Diversity of species develops gradually over many generations as
a result of heredity and environment
Species acquire many of their unique characteristics through
biological adaptation
Biological adaptations include changes in structure, behavior, or
physiology that enhance survival and reproductive success in a
particular environment
Organisms interact with their environment in order to survive and
The diversity of plants and animals can be explained using the
theory of evolution through natural selection
All the information required for life is a result of genetic
information being passed from parent to offspring
Changes in ecosystems have causes and consequences
