This is the Target Group Menu for a group of targets from the Science Framework for Planning
Group 21
Our environment
This way for Group 22 - Model of Matter

Living and survival on Earth requires continuous adaptation.
How do plants and animals alter their behaviour and form to favourably increase their chances? In what ways do humans make it difficult for other living things to survive on Earth.
Big Idea
- What are we doing to the Earth and how can we prevent permanent damage?
CfE  (Planet Earth - Biodiversity) (Fourth) - SCN 405B - I can sample and identify living things from different habitats to compare their biodiversity and can suggest reasons for their distribution.
CfE (Topical Science) (Level Second) - SCN 236BB - I can report and comment on a current scientific news item to develop my awareness of topical science.
