3-LS: Life Science

3-LS3: Heredity: Inheritance and Variation of Traits

3-LS3-1: Provide evidence, including through the analysis of data, that plants and animals have traits inherited from parents and that variation of these traits exist in a group of similar organisms.

 Natural Selection

3-LS3-2: Distinguish between inherited characteristics and those characteristics that result from a direct interaction with the environment. Give examples of characteristics of living organisms that are influenced by both inheritance and the environment.


3-LS4: Biological Evolution: Unity and Diversity

3-LS4-2: Use evidence to construct an explanation for how the variations in characteristics among individuals within the same species may provide advantages to these individuals in their survival and reproduction.

 Natural Selection

3-LS4-3: Construct an argument with evidence that in a particular environment some organisms can survive well, some survive less well, and some cannot survive.

3-PS: Physical Science

3-PS2: Motion and Stability: Forces and Interactions

3-PS2-4: Define a simple design problem that can be solved by applying the use of the interactions between magnets.


3.3-5-ETS: Technology/Engineering

3.3-5-ETS1: Engineering Design

3.3-5-ETS1-1: Define a simple design problem that reflects a need or a want. Include criteria for success and constraints on materials, time, or cost that a potential solution must meet.


3.3-5-ETS1-2: Generate several possible solutions to a given design problem. Compare each solution based on how well each is likely to meet the criteria and constraints of the design problem.


3.3-5-ETS1-4(MA): Gather information using various informational resources on possible solutions to a design problem. Present different representations of a design solution.
