3.PS: Physical Science

3.PS.2: Motion and Stability: Forces and Interactions

3.PS.2.1: Plan and conduct investigations on the effects of balanced and unbalanced forces on the motion of an object.

 Charge Launcher
 Force and Fan Carts

3.PS.2.2: Make observations and/or measurements of the object?s motion to provide evidence that a pattern can be used to predict future motion.

3.LS: Life Science

3.LS.1: From Molecules to Organisms: Structure and Processes

3.LS.1.1: Develop models to describe that organisms have unique and diverse life cycles but all have in common birth, growth, reproduction, and death.

 Flower Pollination

3.LS.3: Heredity: Inheritance and Variation of Traits

3.LS.3.1: Analyze and interpret data to provide evidence that plants and animals have traits inherited from parents and that variation of these traits exists in a group of similar organisms.


3.LS.3.2: Use evidence to support the explanation that traits can be influenced by the environment.

 Effect of Environment on New Life Form
 Growing Plants
 Measuring Trees

3.LS.4: Biological Unity and Diversity

3.LS.4.1: Analyze and interpret data from fossils to provide evidence of the organisms and the environments in which they lived long ago.

 Building Pangaea

3.LS.4.2: Use evidence to construct an explanation for how the variations in characteristics among individuals of the same species may provide advantages in surviving and reproducing.

 Natural Selection

3.LS.4.3: Construct an argument with evidence that in a particular habitat some organisms can survive well, some survive less well, and some cannot survive at all.
