In other words, a developing human body and mind is similar to other organisms with backbones. However, there are various stages in human development, which distinguish humans from other species.

For example, the behavior of many species is largely dependent upon their genetic programming. On the other hand, human physical, emotional and intellectual development evolves over a longer period of time. This development is dependent upon learned behavior and culture, as well as genetic programming.

Organisms and Development

Standard 10: HUMAN DEVELOPMENT: Students explain the important aspects of human development from fertilization to death and compare them with other organisms.

Standard Number:1

K-3

No benchmark for this cluster.
