MS-LS1-3. Use argument supported by evidence for how the body is a system of interacting subsystems composed of groups of cells.
Science & Engineering Practices
Engaging in Argument from Evidence - Use an oral and written argument supported by evidence to support or refute an explanation or a model for a phenomenon.
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.
Systems and System Models - Systems may interact with other systems; they may have sub-systems and be a part of larger complex systems.
