SC.3.N.1: The Practice of Science

SC.3.N.1.3: Keep records as appropriate, such as pictorial, written, or simple charts and graphs, of investigations conducted.

Graphing Skills

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.

Radiation

SC.3.E.5.4: Explore the Law of Gravity by demonstrating that gravity is a force that can be overcome.

Free Fall Tower

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.

Radiation

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.

Mineral Identification
Weight and Mass

SC.3.P.8.3: Compare materials and objects according to properties such as size, shape, color, texture, and hardness.

Heat Absorption
Mineral Identification

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.

Phases of Water

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.

Energy Conversions

SC.3.P.10.1: Identify some basic forms of energy such as light, heat, sound, electrical, and mechanical.

Energy Conversions
Heat Absorption
Radiation

SC.3.P.10.4: Demonstrate that light can be reflected, refracted, and absorbed.

Color Absorption
Heat Absorption

SC.3.P.11: Energy Transfer and Transformations

SC.3.P.11.A: Waves involve a transfer of energy without a transfer of matter.

Heat Absorption
Radiation

SC.3.P.11.1: Investigate, observe, and explain that things that give off light often also give off heat.

Heat Absorption
Radiation

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.

Flower Pollination

SC.3.L.14.1: Describe structures in plants and their roles in food production, support, water and nutrient transport, and reproduction.

Flower Pollination

SC.3.L.17: Interdependence

SC.3.L.17.B: Both human activities and natural events can have major impacts on the environment.

Pond Ecosystem

SC.3.L.17.C: Energy flows from the sun through producers to consumers.

Forest Ecosystem

SC.3.L.17.2: Recognize that plants use energy from the Sun, air, and water to make their own food.

Energy Conversions
Forest Ecosystem
