MA.3-ESS.Grade 3: Earth and Space Sciences
Grade 3: Earth and Space Sciences
ESS2. Earth’s Systems 3-ESS2-1. Use graphs and tables of local weather data to describe and predict typical weather during a particular season in an area.
3-ESS2-2. Obtain and summarize information about the climate of different regions of the world to illustrate that typical weather conditions over a year vary by region.
MA.3-LS.Grade 3: Life Science
LS1. From Molecules to Organisms: Structures and Processes 3-LS1-1. Use simple graphical representations to show that different types of organisms have unique and diverse life cycles. Describe that all organisms have birth, growth, reproduction, and death in common but there are a variety of ways in which these happen. Quiz, Flash Cards, Worksheet, Game & Study Guide Plants
LS3. Heredity: Inheritance and Variation of Traits 3-LS3-1. Provide evidence, including through the analysis of data, that plants and animals have traits inherited from parents and that variation of these traits exist in a group of similar organisms.
3-LS3-2. Distinguish between inherited characteristics and those characteristics that result from a direct interaction with the environment. Give examples of characteristics of living organisms that are influenced by both inheritance and the environment.
LS4. Biological Evolution: Unity and Diversity 3-LS4-1. Use fossils to describe types of organisms and their environments that existed long ago and compare those to living organisms and their environments. Recognize that most kinds of plants and animals that once lived on Earth are no longer found anywhere.
3-LS4-3. Construct an argument with evidence that in a particular environment some organisms can survive well, some survive less well, and some cannot survive.
3-LS4-4. Analyze and interpret given data about changes in a habitat and describe how the changes may affect the ability of organisms that live in that habitat to survive and reproduce.
MA.3-PS.Grade 3: Physical Science
Grade 3: Physical Science
PS2. Motion and Stability: Forces and Interactions 3-PS2-1. Provide evidence to explain the effect of multiple forces, including friction, on an object. Include balanced forces that do not change the motion of the object and unbalanced forces that do change the motion of the object.
3-PS2-3. Conduct an investigation to determine the nature of the forces between two magnets based on their orientations and distance relative to each other.
3-PS2-4. Define a simple design problem that can be solved by using interactions between magnets. Quiz, Flash Cards, Worksheet, Game & Study Guide Magnets
