SC.3.1: Forces and Interactions: Motion and Stability

SC.3.1.1: Gather, analyze, and communicate evidence of forces and their interactions.

SC.3.1.1.A: Plan and conduct an investigation to provide evidence of the effects of balanced and unbalanced forces on the motion of an object.

SC.3.7: Interdependent Relationships in Ecosystems

SC.3.7.2: Gather and analyze data to communicate an understanding of the interdependent relations in ecosystems.

SC.3.7.2.B: Analyze and interpret data from fossils to provide evidence of the organisms and environments in which they lived long ago.

Building Pangaea

SC.3.7.2.C: 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.

Pond Ecosystem

SC.3.7.2.E: Generate and compare multiple possible solutions to a problem based on how well each is likely to meet the criteria and constraints of the problem.


SC.3.9: Inheritance and Variation: Life Cycles and Traits

SC.3.9.3: Gather and analyze data to communicate an understanding of inheritance and variation of traits though life cycles and environmental influences.

SC.3.9.3.A: Develop models to describe that organisms have unique and diverse life cycles but all have in common birth, growth, reproduction, and death.

Flower Pollination

SC.3.9.3.B: 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.

Natural Selection

SC.3.9.3.C: Use evidence to support the explanation that traits can be influenced by the environment.

Natural Selection

SC.3.9.3.D: 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.
