3.1.6.A1: Common Characteristics of Life
3.1.6.A1.1: Describe the similarities and differences of major physical characteristics in plants, animals, fungi, protists, and bacteria.
3.1.6.A2: Energy Flow
3.1.6.A2.1: Describe how energy derived from the sun is used by plants to produce sugars (photosynthesis) and is transferred within a food chain from producers (plants) to consumers to decomposers.
3.1.6.A4: Cell Cycles
3.1.6.A4.1: Recognize that all organisms are composed of cells and that many organisms are unicellular and must carry out all life functions in one cell.
3.1.6.A5: Form and Function
3.1.6.A5.1: Describe basic structures that plants and animals have that contribute to their ability to make or find food and reproduce.
3.1.6.A6.1: Identify examples of unicellular and multicellular organisms.
3.2.6.A3: Matter & Energy
3.2.6.A3.1: Explain and give examples of how mass is conserved in a closed system.
3.2.6.A4.1: Differentiate between physical changes and chemical changes.
3.2.6.B1: Force & Motion of Particles and Rigid Bodies
3.2.6.B1.1: Explain how changes in motion require a force.
3.2.6.B2: Energy Storage and Transformations: Conservation Laws
3.2.6.B2.1: Describe energy as a property of objects associated with heat, light, electricity, magnetism, mechanical motion, and sound.
3.2.6.B2.2: Differentiate between potential and kinetic energy.
3.2.6.B3: Heat/Heat Transfer
3.2.6.B3.1: Give examples of how heat moves in predictable ways, normally flowing from warmer objects to cooler ones until they reach the same temperature.
3.2.6.B3.2: Explain the effect of heat on particle motion by describing what happens to particles during a phase change.
3.2.6.B6: Unifying Themes
3.2.6.B6.1: Demonstrate that heat moves in predictable ways from warmer objects to cooler ones.
3.3.6.A1: Earth Features and the Processes that Change It
3.3.6.A1.1: Recognize and interpret various mapping representations of Earth’s common features.
3.3.6.A4.1: Describe how water on earth cycles in different forms and in different locations, including underground and in the atmosphere.
3.3.6.A5: Weather and Climate
3.3.6.A5.2: Explain the effects of oceans on climate.
3.3.6.A5.3: Describe how global patterns such as the jet stream and water currents influence local weather in measurable terms such as temperature, wind direction and speed, and precipitation.
3.3.6.A6: Unifying Themes
3.3.6.A6.2: Create models of Earth’s common physical features.
3.3.6.B1: Composition and Structure
3.3.6.B1.1: Compare and contrast the size, composition, and surface features of the planets that comprise the solar system as well as the objects orbiting them.
3.3.6.B1.2: Recognize the role of gravity as a force that pulls all things on or near the earth toward the center of the earth and in the formation of the solar system and the motions of objects in the solar system.
3.3.6.B1.3: Explain why the planets orbit the sun in nearly circular paths.
3.3.6.B1.5: Explain how the tilt of the earth and its revolution around the sun cause an uneven heating of the earth which in turn causes the seasons and weather patterns.
3.3.6.B2: Unifying Themes
3.3.6.B2.1: Use models to demonstrate that earth has different seasons and weather patterns.
3.3.6.B2.2: Use models to demonstrate that the phases of the moon are a result of its orbit around Earth.
