Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform.

Standards: Science

The science standards include both NGSS and Michigan Science Standards.
MS-LS2 (0)
Education Level MS

Ecosystems: Interactions Energy and Dynamics

MS-LS2-1 (0)
Education Level MS

Analyze and interpret data to provide evidence for the effects of resource availability on organisms and populations of organisms in an ecosystem.

MS-LS2-2 (1)
Education Level MS

Construct an explanation that predicts patterns of interactions among organisms across multiple ecosystems.

MS-LS2-3 (0)
Education Level MS

Develop a model to describe the cycling of matter and flow of energy among living and nonliving parts of an ecosystem.

MS-LS2-4 (0)
Education Level MS

Construct an argument supported by empirical evidence that changes to physical or biological components of an ecosystem affect populations.

MS-LS2-5 (0)
Education Level MS

Evaluate competing design solutions for maintaining biodiversity and ecosystem services.

MS-LS3 (0)
Education Level MS

Heredity: Inheritance and Variation of Traits

MS-LS3-1 (0)
Education Level MS

Develop and use a model to describe why structural changes to genes (mutations) located on chromosomes may affect proteins and may result in harmful beneficial or neutral effects to the structure and function of the organism.

MS-LS3-2 (0)
Education Level MS

Develop and use a model to describe why asexual reproduction results in offspring with identical genetic information and sexual reproduction results in offspring with genetic variation.

MS-LS4 (0)
Education Level MS

Biological Evolution: Unity and Diversity

MS-LS4-1 (0)
Education Level MS

Analyze and interpret data for patterns in the fossil record that document the existence diversity extinction and change of life forms throughout the history of life on Earth under the assumption that natural laws operate today as in the past.

MS-LS4-2 (0)
Education Level MS

Apply scientific ideas to construct an explanation for the anatomical similarities and differences among modern organisms and between modern and fossil organisms to infer evolutionary relationships.

MS-LS4-3 (0)
Education Level MS

Analyze displays of pictorial data to compare patterns of similarities in the embryological development across multiple species to identify relationships not evident in the fully formed anatomy.

MS-LS4-4 (0)
Education Level MS

Construct an explanation based on evidence that describes how genetic variations of traits in a population increase some individuals' probability of surviving and reproducing in a specific environment.

MS-LS4-5 (0)
Education Level MS

Gather and synthesize information about the technologies that have changed the way humans influence the inheritance of desired traits in organisms.
