Earth and Space 

The sun is the principal source of energy. 

  • Sunlight warms Earth’s land, air, and water. The amount of exposure to sunlight affects the amount of warming or cooling of air, water, and land. 

Life Science 

Living things have basic needs, which are met by obtaining materials from the physical environment. 

  • Living things require energy, water, and a particular range of temperatures in their environments. 

  • Plants get energy from sunlight. Animals get energy from plants and other animals. 

  • Living things acquire resources from the living and nonliving components of the environment. 

Living things survive only in environments that meet their needs. 

  • Resources are necessary to meet the needs of an individual and populations of individuals. Living things interact with their physical environments as they meet those needs. 

  • Effects of seasonal changes within the local environment directly-impact the availability of resources.
