RI GSEs in ScienceK-4 Assessment Targets

Students demonstrate understanding of structure and function and survival requirements by

4a Identifying and explaining how the physical structure/characteristic of an organism allows it to survive and defend itself.

4b Analyzing thestructures needed for survival of populations of plants and animals in a particular habitat/environment.

Class focus question
Class Focus Question

  • What are a squid’s physical structures and their functions?

  • How do the structures help them survive?


Prediction
Prediction

Draw and label the

structures of a squid you know.

Explain the functions of

each structure you know.


Planning procedure
Planning-Procedure

  • Gather Materials

    • Squid, scissors, paper towel, plate, toothpick, Squid Anatomy

  • Observation 1 - Outside

    • Draw the tentacles.

    • Draw the mantle and siphon.



Planning procedure1
Planning-Procedure

  • Observation 2 - Inside the Squid

    • Draw the Mouth (“beak”).

    • Find the Pen.

    • Draw and write on blank paper with ink from ink sac.

  • Clean-up



Planning procedure2
Planning-Procedure

  • Draw and write on blank paper with ink from ink sac.

  • Clean up.
