Life Science
  • Develops models to describe that organisms have unique and diverse life cycles but all have in common birth, growth, reproduction, and death. 3-LS1-1 
  • Constructs an argument that some animals form groups that help members survive. 3-LS2-1 
  • Provides evidence that plants and animals have traits inherited from parents and that variation of these traits exists in a group of similar organisms. 3-LS3-1 
  • Uses evidence to support the explanation that traits can be influenced by the environment. 3-LS3-2 
  • Constructs an argument that in a particular habitat some organisms can survive well, some survive less well, and some cannot survive at all. 3-LS4-3 
  • Makes a claim about the merit of a solution to a problem caused when the environment changes and the types of plants and animals that live there may change. 3-LS4-4 

Engineering Standards (All Year)
  • Defines a simple design problem reflecting a need or a want that includes specified criteria for success and constraints on materials, time, or cost. 3-5-ETS1-1 
  • Generates and compare multiple possible solutions to a problem based on how well each is likely to meet the criteria and constraints of the problem. 3-5-ETS1-2 
  • Plans and carries out fair tests in which variables are controlled and failure points are considered to identify aspects of a model or prototype that can be improved. 3-5-ETS1-3
