We will begin the Basic Needs STEMscope on Tuesday, October 2nd. The tentative date for the Basic Needs test is on Friday, October 12th.
The "big idea" of this scope is that living things have basic needs that must be met in order for them to survive and thrive. Resources are taken in by organisms and then recycled back into the environment as organisms live, grow, and die. Matter in an organism’s environment is cycled among living and nonliving things. This cycling ensures that an environment’s occupants obtain what they need from the environment while contributing to its health and sustainability.
