11 ) Construct an argument from evidence to explain the likelihood of an
organism's ability to survive when compared to the resources in a certain
habitat (e.g., freshwater organisms survive well, less well, or not at all in

a. Construct explanations that forming groups helps some organisms survive.
b. Create models that illustrate how organisms and their habitats make up a
system in which the parts depend on each other.
c. Categorize resources in various habitats as basic materials (e.g.,
sunlight, air, freshwater, soil), produced materials (e.g., food, fuel, shelter), or as nonmaterial (e.g., safety, instinct, nature-learned behaviors).
