The Living Earth (Biology)

The interactions between the biosphere and the rest of Earth’s systems influence students every day, from the food that they eat to the air they breathe In high school, students finally have enough understanding to explain patterns that they identified and asked questions about during their K–8 education. Some of these mechanisms occur in the blink of an eye while others take millions of years to unfold. Despite the extreme variability in scale, students have tools to use evidence, evaluate claims, and develop models to interpret the unseen. Students begin with phenomena and use them to enhance their understanding of core ideas in biological science and Earth and space sciences
