Next Generation Sunshine State Standards
SC.3.N.1: The Practice of Science
SC.3.N.1.A: Scientific inquiry is a multifaceted activity; The processes of science include the formulation of scientifically investigable questions, construction of investigations into those questions, the collection of appropriate data, the evaluation of the meaning of those data, and the communication of this evaluation.
SC.3.N.1.B: The processes of science frequently do not correspond to the traditional portrayal of "the scientific method."
SC.3.N.1.C: Scientific argumentation is a necessary part of scientific inquiry and plays an important role in the generation and validation of scientific knowledge.
SC.3.N.1.3: Keep records as appropriate, such as pictorial, written, or simple charts and graphs, of investigations conducted.
SC.3.E.5: Humans continue to explore Earth's place in space. Gravity and energy influence the formation of galaxies, including our own Milky Way Galaxy, stars, the Solar System, and Earth. Humankind's need to explore continues to lead to the development of knowledge and understanding of our Solar System.
SC.3.E.5.2: Identify the Sun as a star that emits energy; some of it in the form of light.
SC.3.E.5.4: Explore the Law of Gravity by demonstrating that gravity is a force that can be overcome.
SC.3.E.6: Humans continue to explore the composition and structure of the surface of Earth. External sources of energy have continuously altered the features of Earth by means of both constructive and destructive forces. All life, including human civilization, is dependent on Earth?s water and natural resources.
SC.3.E.6.1: Demonstrate that radiant energy from the Sun can heat objects and when the Sun is not present, heat may be lost.
SC.3.P.8: Properties of Matter
SC.3.P.8.B: Objects and substances can be classified by their physical and chemical properties. Mass is the amount of matter (or "stuff") in an object. Weight, on the other hand, is the measure of force of attraction (gravitational force) between an object and Earth.
SC.3.P.8.3: Compare materials and objects according to properties such as size, shape, color, texture, and hardness.
SC.3.P.9: Changes in Matter
SC.3.P.9.1: Describe the changes water undergoes when it changes state through heating and cooling by using familiar scientific terms such as melting, freezing, boiling, evaporation, and condensation.
SC.3.P.10: Forms of Energy
SC.3.P.10.B: Energy exists in many forms and has the ability to do work or cause a change.
SC.3.P.10.1: Identify some basic forms of energy such as light, heat, sound, electrical, and mechanical.
SC.3.P.10.4: Demonstrate that light can be reflected, refracted, and absorbed.
SC.3.P.11: Energy Transfer and Transformations
SC.3.P.11.A: Waves involve a transfer of energy without a transfer of matter.
SC.3.P.11.1: Investigate, observe, and explain that things that give off light often also give off heat.
SC.3.L.14: Organization and Development of Living Organisms
SC.3.L.14.B: All plants and animals, including humans, have internal parts and external structures that function to keep them alive and help them grow and reproduce.
SC.3.L.14.1: Describe structures in plants and their roles in food production, support, water and nutrient transport, and reproduction.
SC.3.L.17.C: Energy flows from the sun through producers to consumers.
SC.3.L.17.2: Recognize that plants use energy from the Sun, air, and water to make their own food.
