3-PS: Physical Science

3-PS2-1: Plan and carry out 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 for how a pattern can be used to predict future motion.

 Distance-Time Graphs

3-LS: Life Science

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-LS3-1: Analyze and interpret data to provide evidence that plants and animals have traits inherited from parents and that variations of these traits exist in a group of similar organisms.

 Inheritance
 Natural Selection

3-LS3-2: Use evidence and reasoning to support the explanation that traits can be influenced by the environment.

 Effect of Environment on New Life Form
 Growing Plants
 Inheritance
 Measuring Trees
 Natural Selection

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 and reasoning 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 how some organisms thrive, some struggle to survive, and some cannot survive in a particular habitat.

 Natural Selection
