3SC: Science - 3

3SC.A: Physical Science

3SC.A.1: obtain, evaluate, and communicate information about the ways heat energy is transferred and measured

Conduction and Convection
Heat Absorption

3SC.A.1.a: ask questions to identify sources of heat energy

Energy Conversions

3SC.A.1.b: plan and carry out an investigation to gather data using thermometers to produce tables and charts that illustrate the effect of sunlight on various objects

Heat Absorption

3SC.C: Life Science

3SC.C.4: obtain, evaluate, and communicate information about the similarities and differences between plants, animals, and habitats (mountains, piedmont, marsh/swamp, coast, Atlantic Ocean) found within geographic regions (Blue Ridge Mountains, Appalachian Plateau, Valley and Ridge, Piedmont, Coastal Plains) of Georgia

3SC.C.4.c: construct an explanation using evidence of how external features and adaptations (e.g., camouflage, use of hibernation, protection, migration, mimicry) of animals allow them to survive in their habitat

Effect of Environment on New Life Form
Natural Selection

3SC.C.4.e: construct an explanation to communicate what will happen to an organism if a habitat is manipulated or changed (e.g., destruction of forests, advancement of technology, effects of migration)

Forest Ecosystem
Prairie Ecosystem

3SCE: Science Grade 3 Enrich

3SCE.A: Content

3SCE.A.1: plan and carry out an investigation to gather data using thermometers to produce tables and charts that illustrate the effect of sunlight on various objects

Heat Absorption

3SCE.A.7: construct an explanation using evidence of how external features and adaptations (i.e., camouflage, use of hibernation, protection, migration, mimicry) of animals allow them to survive in their habitat

Natural Selection

3SCE.A.8: use evidence to construct an explanation of why some organisms can thrive in one habitat and not in another

Natural Selection

3SCE.A.9: construct an explanation to communicate what will happen to an organism if a habitat is manipulated or changed (e.g., destruction of forests, advancement of technology, effects of migration)

Forest Ecosystem

3STE: STEM Exploratory/Grade 3

3STE.A: Technology, Programming, and Robotics

3STE.A.3: collect, analyze, and represent data effectively

Graphing Skills
Measuring Motion
Measuring Trees

3STE.B: Science

3STE.B.11: obtain, evaluate, and communicate information about the ways heat energy is transferred and measured

Conduction and Convection
Heat Absorption

3STE.C: Math

3STE.C.14: apply multiplication and division within 100 (products or dividends 0-100) to solve word problems in situations involving equal groups, arrays and measurement quantities (e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem)

Chocomatic (Multiplication, Arrays, and Area)
Critter Count (Modeling Multiplication)

3STE.C.15: draw a scaled picture graph and a scaled bar graph to represent a data set with several categories; solve one- and two-step 'how many more' and 'how many less' problems using information presented in scaled bar graphs (e.g., draw a bar graph in which each square in the bar graph might represent five pets)

Mascot Election (Pictographs and Bar Graphs)

3STE.C.16: solve two-step word problems using the four operations; represent these problems using equations with a letter standing for the unknown quantity; assess the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies including rounding; this standard is limited to problems posed with whole numbers and having whole number answers; students should know how to perform operations in the conventional order where there are no parentheses to specify a particular order (order of operations)
