  • Numbers and shapes can be used to tell about things. 
  • People can use objects and ways of doing things to solve problems. 
  • Objects can be described in terms of the materials they are made of and their physical properties. 
  • There is variation among individuals of one kind within a population. 
  • Offspring are very much, but not exactly, like their parents and one another. 
  • People have different external features, such as size, shape, and color of hair, skin, and eyes, but they are more like one another than they are like other animals. 
  • People need water, food, air, waste removal, and a particular range of temperatures in their environment. 
  • Even after birth, a human baby is unable to care for itself, and its survival depends on the care it receives from adults. 
  • The human body has parts that help it seek, find and take in food when it feels hunger.
