HS-LS1-2. Develop and use a model to illustrate the hierarchical organization of interacting systems that provide specific functions within multicellular organisms.
Science & Engineering Practices
Developing and Using Models - Develop, revise, and/or use a model based on evidence to illustrate and/or predict the relationships between systems or between components of a system
Disciplinary Core Ideas
LS1.A: Structure and Function - Multicellular organisms have a hierarchical structural organization, in which any one system is made up of numerous parts and is itself a component of the next level.
Systems and System Models - models (e.g., physical, mathematical, computer models) can be used to simulate the flow of energy, matter, and interactions within and between systems at different scales.
