Red River Journey, Devon Energy Oil and Gas Park, and 14 Flags Over Oklahoma Exhibit

Exhibit AreaGrade Level & Standards Addressed
Red River Journey Life Science
  • Use observations to describe patterns of what plants/animals need to survive (KLS1-1)
  • Make observations of plants/animals to compare the diversity of life in different habitats (2LS4-1)
  • Develop models to describe that organisms have unique/diverse life cycles but all have in common birth, growth, reproduction, and death (3LS1-1)
  • Construct an argument that plants/animals have internal/external structures that function to support survival, growth, behavior and reproduction (4LS1-1)
  • Support an argument that plants get the materials they need for growth chiefly from air and water (5LS1-1)
14 Flags Over Oklahoma Exhibit Social Studies
  • Describe the connection between the historic significance of past events/people and the symbols of Oklahoma’s history (Oklahoma State Seal and the Oklahoma flag) (3.CS.1.3)
  • Summarize how France, Spain, England, Russia, and the Netherlands culturally influenced different regions of the United States in which they settled (regional place names, architectural features, customs, and language) (4.CS.2.3)
Devon Energy Oil and Gas Park Life Science
  • Analyze/interpret data to provide evidence for the effects of resource availability on organisms and populations of organisms in an ecosystem (6MSLS2-1)
Physical Science
  • Ask questions/predict outcomes about the changes in energy that occur when objects collide (4PS3-3)
  • Gather/make sense of information to describe that synthetic materials come from natural resources and impact society (MSPS1-3)
Earth and Space Science
  • Construct an argument supported by evidence for how plants/animals can change the environment to meet their needs (KESS2-2)
  • Obtain/combine information to describe that energy and fuels are derived from renewable/non-renewable resources and how their uses affect the environment (4ESS3-1)
  • Construct a scientific explanation from evidence for how geological processes lead to uneven distribution of natural resources (HSESS3-5)
