  17. G1.6S.C1.PO4: I can identify natural resources. 

  18. G1.6S.C1.PO5: I can identify ways to conserve natural resources (e.g., reduce, reuse, recycle, find alternatives).

Quarter 2 Standards:
  1. G1.4S.C1.PO2: I can compare the following observable features of living things: movement - legs, wings; protection - skin, feathers, tree bark; respiration - lungs, gills; support - plant stems, tree trunks 

  1. G1.4S.C3.PO1: I can identify some plants and animals that exist in the local environment.
