(a) use observations to describe patterns of what plants and animals, including humans, need to survive.
(3) Earth and space science content standards for kindergarten are that each student will:
(a) construct an argument supported by evidence for how plants and animals, including humans, can change the environment to meet their needs;
(b) use a model to represent the relationship between the needs of different plants or animals, including humans, and the places they live;
