3-PS: Physical Science

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.

 Charge Launcher
 Force and Fan Carts

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-LS: Life Science

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.

 Flower Pollination

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.

 Effect of Environment on New Life Form
 Growing Plants
 Measuring Trees

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.

 Building Pangaea

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.

 Natural Selection

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.

 Natural Selection
