SCIENCE in PERSONAL and SOCIAL PERSPECTIVES (5-8) and (9-12)

ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY - Humans affect both physical and chemical cycles of the earth. Ecosystems provide basic processes that affect humans. Those processes include air quality, soil quality and water quality. Many factors influence environmental quality, including: population growth, resource use, population distribution, over-consumption, and the capacity of technology to solve problems. Disposal of wastes and recycling of nutrients needs to be addressed if these natural processes are to continue to support human life on Earth.

NATURAL RESOURCES - Populations use resources in the environment in order to survive. Natural resources are used to maintain human populations. The consumption of these resources at an abnormal rate stresses the natural processes that renew some resources, and it depletes those resources that cannot be renewed. Natural systems have the capacity to reuse waste, but that capacity is limited. Natural systems can change.

POPULATION GROWTH - Populations grow or decline. Populations can increase effects on resource use and environmental pollution. Populations can reach certain limits. Carrying capacity is the maximum number of individuals that can be supported in a given environment. Changes can cause significant changes, either positive or negative, in carrying capacity. Changes can be seasonal, short term, long term, or permanent.

PERSONAL AND COMMUNITY HEALTH -
Humans have to deal with health concerns. The severity of these concerns depends on resistance and the strength of the disease-producing organism. Many diseases can be prevented, controlled, or cured. Some diseases, such as cancer, result from specific body dysfunctions and cannot be transmitted. Personal health choices involve fitness personal goals, peer and social pressures, and understanding of consequences about certain health practices. Selection of foods and eating patterns determine nutritional health, which has a direct effect on growth and development and personal well-being. Personal and social factors, such as habits, family income, ethnic heritage, body size, advertising, and peer pressure can influence nutritional choices. Families serve basic health needs, especially for young children.
