Alabama Course of Study Alignments and/or Professional Development Standard Alignments:

SC (9-12) Biology
9. Differentiate between the previous five-kingdom and current six-kingdom classification systems.
  • Sequencing taxa from most inclusive to least inclusive in the classification of living things
  • Identifying organisms using a dichotomous key
  • Identifying ways in which organisms from the Monera, Protista, and Fungi kingdoms are beneficial and harmful
  • Examples:
    beneficial—decomposers,
    harmful—diseases
  • Justifying the grouping of viruses in a category separate from living things
  • Writing scientific names accurately by using binomial nomenclature
  •  
    SC (9-12) Biology
    10. Distinguish between monocots and dicots, angiosperms and gymnosperms, and vascular and nonvascular plants.
  • Describing the histology of roots, stems, leaves, and flowers
  • Recognizing chemical and physical adaptations of plants
  • Examples:
    chemical—foul odor, bitter taste, toxicity;
    physical—spines, needles, broad leaves
     
    SC2015 (9-12) Biology
    13. Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information to explain how organisms are classified by physical characteristics, organized into levels of taxonomy, and identified by binomial nomenclature (e.g., taxonomic classification, dichotomous keys).
    a. Engage in argument to justify the grouping of viruses in a category separate from living things.
     
    SC2015 (9-12) Environmental Science
    17. Obtain, evaluate, and communicate geological and biological information to determine the types of organisms that live in major biomes.
    a. Analyze and interpret data collected through geographic research and field investigations (e.g., relief, topographic, and physiographic maps; rivers; forest types; watersheds) to describe the biodiversity by region for the state of Alabama (e.g., terrestrial, freshwater, marine, endangered, invasive).
     

    National/Other Standards:

    S1, BIO, (9-12), 9: Differentiate between the previous five-kingdom and current six-kingdom classification systems.

    S1, BIO, (9-12), 10: Distinguish between monocots and dicots, angiosperms and gymnosperms, and vascular and nonvascular plants.
