S.3.GS: General Science Content

(Framing Text): Forces and Interactions

S.3.GS.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

S.3.GS.2: make observations and/or measurements of an object’s motion to provide evidence that a pattern can be used to predict future motion.

 Distance-Time Graphs
 Force and Fan Carts
 Measuring Motion

S.3.GS.3: ask questions to determine cause and effect relationships of electric or magnetic interactions between two objects not in contact with each other.

 Charge Launcher
 Magnetism

S.3.GS.4: define a simple design problem that can be solved by applying scientific ideas about magnets.

 Magnetism

(Framing Text): Interdependent Relationships in Ecosystems

S.3.GS.6: analyze and interpret data from fossils to provide evidence of the organisms and the environments in which they lived long ago.

 Building Pangaea

S.3.GS.7: 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
 Pond Ecosystem

(Framing Text): Inheritance and Variation of Traits: Life Cycles and Traits

S.3.GS.9: develop models to describe that organisms have unique and diverse life cycles but all have in common birth, growth, reproduction, and death.

 Flower Pollination

S.3.GS.10: 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.

 Inheritance
 Natural Selection

S.3.GS.11: use evidence to support the explanation that traits can be influenced by the environment.

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

S.3.GS.12: 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.
