SC.3.1: Physical Science

SC.3.1.1: Patterns of motion can be used to predict future motion.

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

Charge Launcher

SC.3.1.1.b: Students can: Make observations and/or measurements of an object’s motion to provide evidence that a pattern can be used to predict future motion.

Measuring Motion
Pendulum Clock

SC.3.1.2: Objects in contact exert forces on each other; electric and magnetic forces between a pair of objects do not require contact.

SC.3.1.2.a: Students can: Ask questions to determine cause-and-effect relationships of electric or magnetic interactions between two objects not in contact with each other.

Magnetism

SC.3.2: Life Science

SC.3.2.1: Organisms have unique and diverse life cycles.

SC.3.2.1.a: Students can: Develop models to describe that organisms have unique and diverse life cycles but all have in common birth, growth, reproduction and death.

Flower Pollination
Honeybee Hive

SC.3.2.2: Being part of a group helps animals obtain food, defend themselves and cope with changes.

SC.3.2.2.a: Students can: Construct an argument that some animals form groups that help members survive.

Honeybee Hive

SC.3.2.3: Different organisms vary in how they look and function because they have different inherited information; the environment also affects the traits that an organism develops.

SC.3.2.3.a: Students can: 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

SC.3.2.3.b: Students can: Use evidence to support the explanation that traits can be influenced by the environment.

Growing Plants
Inheritance
Measuring Trees

SC.3.2.4: Some living organisms resemble organisms that once lived on Earth.

SC.3.2.4.a: Students can: Analyze and interpret data from fossils to provide evidence of the organisms and the environments in which they lived long ago.

Building Pangaea

SC.3.2.4.b: Students can: 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

SC.3.2.5: Sometimes differences in characteristics between individuals of the same species provide advantages in survival and reproduction.

SC.3.2.5.a: Students can: 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.3.3: Earth and Space Science

SC.3.3.1: Climate describes patterns of typical weather conditions over different scales and variations; historical weather patterns can be analyzed.

SC.3.3.1.a: Students can: Represent data in tables and graphical displays to describe typical weather conditions expected during a particular season.
