MS-LS1-3. Use argument supported by evidence for how the body is a system of interacting subsystems composed of groups of cells.
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
Analyzing and Interpreting Data - Analyze and interpret data to provide evidence for phenomena.
Constructing Explanations - Apply scientific ideas, principles, and/or evidence to construct, revise and/or use an explanation for real world phenomena, examples, or events.
- Apply scientific reasoning to show why the data or evidence is adequate for the explanation or conclusion
- Apply scientific reasoning, theory, and/or models to link evidence to the claims to assess the extent to which the reasoning and data support the explanation or conclusion.
Disciplinary Core Ideas
LS1.A: Structure and Function - In multicellular organisms, the body is a system of multiple interacting subsystems. These subsystems are groups of cells that work together to form tissues and organs that are specialized for particular body functions.
- 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 - Systems may interact with other systems; they may have sub-systems and be a part of larger complex systems.
Cause and Effect - Use cause and effect relationships to predict phenomena in natural or designed systems.
