Unifying Concepts and Process Standards

Correlation of Live from Antarctica 2 Activities with the "Unifying Concepts and Processes" Standards as stated in the National Science Education Standards of the National Research Council (National Academy Press, ©1996, pg. 104 ff.)

Unifying Concepts and Process Standards Chart

Key to Concepts headings:

Systems = Systems, Order and Organization

Evidence = Evidence, Models and Explanation

Change = Change,Constancy and Measurement

Evolution = Evolution and Equilibrium

Form = Form and Function

Note: NAS/NRC suggests 8 categories of content standards: "Unifying Concepts and Processes in Science" is broken down above. Most of the Activities in LFA2 relate so directly to 3 of the other categories that no individual correlation is indicated here (i.e. Physical Science, Life Science, and Earth and Space Science). However the initials below indicate correlations of Activities with the 4 remaining categories:

I = Science as Inquiry

T = Science and Technology

P = Science in personal and social perspectives

H = History and Nature of Science
