VT--NGSS Arranged by Disciplinary Core Idea (DCI)
3-PS2: Motion and Stability: Forces and Interactions
3-PS2-1: Plan and conduct an investigation to provide evidence of the effects of balanced and unbalanced forces on the motion of an object.
3-PS2-2: Make observations and/or measurements of an object’s motion to provide evidence that a pattern can be used to predict future motion.
3-PS2-3: Ask questions to determine cause and effect relationships of electric or magnetic interactions between two objects not in contact with each other.
3-LS1: From Molecules to Organisms: Structures and Processes
3-LS1-1: Develop models to describe that organisms have unique and diverse life cycles but all have in common birth, growth, reproduction, and death.
3-LS2: Ecosystems: Interactions, Energy, and Dynamics
3-LS2-1: Construct an argument that some animals form groups that help members survive.
3-LS3: Heredity: Inheritance and Variation of Traits
3-LS3-1: 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-LS3-2: Use evidence to support the explanation that traits can be influenced by the environment.
3-LS4: Biological Evolution: Unity and Diversity
3-LS4-1: Analyze and interpret data from fossils to provide evidence of the organisms and the environments in which they lived long ago.
3-LS4-2: Use evidence to construct an explanation for how the variations in characteristics among individuals of the same species may provide advantages in surviving, finding mates, and reproducing.
3-LS4-3: 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.
3-ESS2: Earth’s Systems
3-ESS2-1: Represent data in tables and graphical displays to describe typical weather conditions expected during a particular season.
3-ESS2-2: Obtain and combine information to describe climates in different regions of the world.
