Patterns of Life
How do parents make sure their babies stay alive?
Take your first grade scientists on a virtual field trip to meet the special creatures at the California Science Center to compare parents and offspring to see that they are alike, but not exactly alike. Students will also find patterns in behavior of parents and offspring that help offspring survive. Young scientists will begin to develop an understanding of how plants and animals use their external parts to help them survive, grow, and meet their needs.

Students will consider how external structures help animals to carry their young and keep them safe. They will use their observations of structure and function in nature as inspiration to design an invention that will let them carry a toy with no hands.
