Life Science
  • 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 
  • Analyzes and interprets data from fossils to provide evidence of the organisms and the environments in which they lived long ago. 3-LS4-1 
  • Constructs an explanation for how variations in characteristics among individuals of the same species may provide advantages in surviving,  finding mates, and reproducing. 3-LS4-2 
  • 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 

Physical Science
  • Investigates the effects of balanced and unbalanced forces on the motion of an object. 3-PS2-1 
  • Makes observations and/or measurements of object’s motion to provide evidence that a pattern can be used to predict future motions. 3-PS2-2 
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
