Use evidence to support the explanation that traits can be influenced by the environment.
Other characteristics result from individuals’ interactions with the environment, which can range from diet to learning. Many characteristics involve both inheritance and environment.
The environment also affects the traits that an organism develops.
Ask questions to determine cause and effect relationships of electric or magnetic interactions between two objects not in contact with each other.
Electric and magnetic forces between a pair of objects do not require that the objects be in contact. The sizes of the forces in each situation depend on the properties of the objects and their distances apart and, for forces between two magnets, on their orientation relative to each other.
