MS-LS1-8 From Molecules to Organisms: Structures and Processes

MS-LS1-8   From Molecules to Organisms: Structures and Processes

Students who demonstrate understanding can:

MS-LS1-8. Gather and synthesize information that sensory receptors respond to stimuli by sending messages to the brain for immediate behavior or storage as memories. [Assessment Boundary: Assessment does not include mechanisms for the transmission of this information.]
The performance expectation above was developed using the following elements from the NRC document A Framework for K-12 Science Education:

Science and Engineering Practices

Obtaining, Evaluating, and Communicating Information

Obtaining, evaluating, and communicating information in 6-8 builds on K-5 experiences and progresses to evaluating the merit and validity of ideas and methods.

Disciplinary Core Ideas

LS1.D: Information Processing

Crosscutting Concepts

Cause and Effect

Connections to other DCIs in this grade-band: N/A

Articulation of DCIs across grade-bands:

4.LS1.D ; HS.LS1.A

Common Core State Standards Connections:

ELA/Literacy -
WHST.6-8.8 Gather relevant information from multiple print and digital sources, using search terms effectively; assess the credibility and accuracy of each source; and quote or paraphrase the data and conclusions of others while avoiding plagiarism and following a standard format for citation.
