LIVING THINGS AND THEIR ENVIRONMENT
Learners recognize that when mixed together, materials may not form new ones thus these materials may be recovered using different separation techniques. They can prepare useful mixtures such as food, drinks and herbal medicines.
Learners understand how the different organ systems of the human body work together. They can classify plants based on reproductive structures, and animals based on the presence or lack of backbone. They can design and conduct an investigation on plant propagation. They can describe larger ecosystems such as rainforests, coral reefs, and mangrove swamps. Learners can infer that friction and gravity affect how people and objects move. They have found out that heat, light, sound, electricity, and motion studied earlier are forms of energy and these undergo transformation.
Learners can describe what happens during earthquakes and volcanic eruptions and demonstrate what to do when they occur. They can infer that the weather follows a pattern in the course of a year. They have learned about the solar system, with emphasis on the motions of the Earth as prerequisite to the study of seasons in another grade level.
At the end of the quarter, the students will be able to;
1.Explain how the organs of each organ system work together;
2.Determine the distinguishing characteristics of vertebrates and invertebrates;
3.Discuss the interactions among living things and non-living things in tropical rainforests, coral reefs and mangrove swamps;
4.Explain the need to protect and conserve tropical rainforests, coral reefs and mangrove swamps.
