I found this article very informative about how this teacher integrated the science standards of analyzing data, obtaining, evaluating, and communicating Information.

They also used predictions and prior knowledge for assessment of what they predicted or knew about the life cycle and then assess the students learning after the lesson by different ways the students could demonstrate their understanding.
