98-99% (dry weight) of all life is made up of 6 elements.

(CHNOPS): Carbon, Hydrogen, Nitrogen, Oxygen, Phosphorus, and Sulfur.

These are the most abundant elements of life.

Of the 100 plus known elements, two to three dozen can be found in most organisms. Most are found in trace amounts, but five stand out: carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen and phosphorus.

The Geography Standards Framework consists of two levels. At the first level, the subject matter of geography is divided into six essential elements. By essential we mean that each piece is central and necessary; we must look at the world in this way.
