Includes the Following NGSS Standards:

PS3.D:  Energy in Chemical Processes and Everyday Life

• The chemical reaction by which plants produce complex food molecules (sugars) requires an energy input (i.e., from sunlight) to occur. In this reaction, carbon dioxide and water combine to form carbon-based organic molecules and release oxygen. (secondary to MS-LS1-6)

• Cellular respiration in plants and animals involve chemical reactions with oxygen that release stored energy. In these processes, complex molecules containing carbon react with oxygen to produce carbon dioxide and other materials. (secondary to MS-LS1-7)

LS1.C:  Organization for Matter and Energy Flow in Organisms

• Plants, algae (including phytoplankton), and many microorganisms use the energy from light to make sugars (food) from carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and water through the process of photosynthesis, which also releases oxygen. These sugars can be used immediately or stored for growth or later use. (MS-LS1-6)

• Within individual organisms, food moves through a series of chemical reactions in which it is broken down and rearranged to form new molecules, to support growth, or to release energy. (MS-LS1-7)

Crosscutting Concepts

Cause and Effect: Cause and effect relationships may be used to predict phenomena in natural or designed systems.

Systems and System Models: Models can be used to represent systems and their interactions—such as inputs, processes and outputs—and energy, and matter flows within systems.

Patterns: Observed patterns in nature guide organization and classification and prompt questions about relationships and causes underlying them.

Energy and Matter: Tracking energy and matter flows, into, out of, and within systems helps one understand their system’s behavior.

Stability and Change: For both designed and natural systems, conditions that affect stability and factors that control rates of change are critical elements to consider and understand.
