In other words, organisms are linked to each other and to their physical setting by the transfer and transformation of matter and energy.

For example, energy from the sun is captured by grass, which converts it with water, nutrients from the soil and Carbon Dioxide from the air to make more plant material. A grass hopper gets its energy by eating some of the grass. A mynah bird then gets this energy by eating the grasshopper. Nutrients and energy are released to the environment when the grass, grasshopper and bird carry on life activities, and when they die.

Organisms and Development

Standard 06: CYCLE OF MATTER AND ENERGY FLOW: Students trace the cycling of matter and the flow of energy through the systems of living things.

Standard Number:1

K-3

Compare and contrast the biological needs of plants and animals.

Give examples of matter or energy being recycled in the environment.

4-5

Diagram how animals' food can be traced back to plants.

Explain how "energy" is needed for all organisms to stay alive and grow.

Give examples where organisms are reproducing, growing, dying, and decaying.
