Concepts Covered

Make observations to construct an evidence-based account that young plants and animals are like, but not exactly like, their parents. Observe plants and animals, describe how they are alike, and how they are different in the way they look and in the things they do. Sort plants and animals into groups based on physical characteristics such as color, size, body covering, or leaf shape.
