1 Boone County 3 rd Grade Science Curriculum Map Unit 1: Force and Motion How do balanced and unbalanced forces on an object affect the object's motion? How can patterns be used to predict a change in motion when a force is applied? Plan and conduct an investigation using fair tests to explain a cause and effect relationship [between forces and the motion of an object]. Use evidence to explain patterns [in motion.] 3-PS2-1. Plan and conduct an investigation to provide evidence of the effects of balanced and unbalanced forces on the motion of an object. 3-PS2-2. Make observations and/or measurements of an object s motion to provide evidence that a pattern can be used to predict future motion. 3-5-ETS1-3. Plan and carry 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. Unit 2: Electric and Magnetic Forces How do electric and magnetic forces interact with objects? How can magnets be used to solve a problem? Ask questions that can be investigated based on patterns such as cause and effect relationships between [electrical and magnetic forces

2 and objects.] Plan and carry out investigations to test solutions to problems [using magnets]. 3-PS2-3. Ask questions to determine cause and effect relationships of electric or magnetic interactions between two objects not in contact with each other. 3-PS2-4. Define a simple design problem that can be solved by applying scientific ideas about magnets.* Unit 3: Weather and Climate What is the typical weather in different parts of the world at different times of the year? How can the impact of weather-related hazards be reduced? Represent data on a graph so it can be analyzed and interpreted to reveal patterns in [typical weather conditions expected during a particular season or region]. Use evidence to argue a claim about the merit of a design solution that [reduces the impact of weather-related hazards]. 3-ESS2-1. Represent data in tables and graphical displays to describe typical weather conditions expected during a particular season. 3-ESS2-2. Obtain and combine information to describe climates in different regions of the world. 3-ESS3-1. Make a claim about the merit of a design solution that reduces the impacts of a weather-related hazard.*

3 Unit 4: Inherited Traits and the Life Cycle How do organisms vary in their inherited traits? How can traits be influenced by the environment? What are the similarities and differences between the life cycles of different organisms? Analyze and interpret data to observe differences and similarities in patterns [in inherited traits among groups of similar organisms]. Construct explanations of cause and effect relationships that are used to explain [that traits can be influenced by the environment]. Develop and use models to show patterns in the [life cycles of different organisms]. 3-LS3-1. 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. 3-LS3-2. Use evidence to support the explanation that traits can be influenced by the environment. 3-LS1-1. Develop models to describe that organisms have unique and diverse life cycles but all have in common birth, growth, reproduction, and death. Unit 5: Survival Within an Environment How do organisms survive in an environment?

4 How do the characteristics of a species help it survive? Engage in an argument from evidence of the cause and effect relationships between an [animal's behaviors and its survival]. Use evidence to construct explanations of the cause and effect relationship between the [characteristics of an organism and its survival]. 3-LS2-1. Construct an argument that some animals form groups that help members survive. 3-LS4-3. 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. 3-5-ETS1-2. 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. 3-LS4-2. 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. Unit 6: Changes in Environments What do fossils teach us about the past? What happens to organisms when their environment changes? Analyze and interpret data about the scale, proportion and quantity [of fossils to learn about the past]. Engage in an argument from evidence about the cause and effect relationship between [environmental changes and the effect on the organisms in that environment].

5 3-LS4-1. Analyze and interpret data from fossils to provide evidence of the organisms and the environments in which they lived long ago. 3-LS4-4. Make 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.*
