This is the Target Group Menu for a group of targets from the Science Framework for Planning
Group 27 - Towards evolution
This way for Group 28 - Periodic Table

How do plants & animals adapt to their environment by inherited characteristics and altered behaviour? How do living things continue to survive and why do some become extinct?

Science - Interactive Guidelines Curriculum for Excellence - draft outcomes
CfE  (Planet Earth - Biodiversity) (Second) - SCN 206B - I can research examples of extinctions in the past and recent times and use my understanding to develop arguments that could be used in a campaign to save an endangered species.
CfE  (Planet Earth - Biodiversity) (Second) - SCN 207B - I can express an informed opinion on the role of zoos, wildlife parks and botanical gardens.
CfE (Topical Science) (Level Third) - SCN 332BB - Through research and group discussion, I have contributed to an evaluation of a media item with regard to its scientific content.

Describe what is meant by an abiotic  factor and give some examples of  how these can be measured

This way for development of target LT-E3.2

Describe examples of competition  between plants and between animals

This way for development of target LT-F3.2

Give a simple description of the theory of evolution and explain how species survive or become extinct

CfE  (Planet Earth - Biodiversity) (Fourth) - SCN 406B Bio - I can investigate different habitats and give a reasoned opinion on how living things are adapted for survival and predict possible consequences of habitat change.
CfE (Topical Science) (Level Fourth) - SCN 443BB ALL - I have researched a new development in science and can show how its current or future application might impact on modern life.
CfE (Topical Science) (Level Fourth) - SCN 444BB ALL - Having selected a scientific theme of topical interest, I can critically analyse the issues, and use relevant information to develop an informed argument.
