Life Science

3-LS1-1
Models of life cycles

3-LS2-1
Some animals form groups that help members survive

3-LS3-1
Plants and animals have traits inherited from parents and variation of these traits exists in a group of similar organisms

3-LS3-2
Traits can be influenced by the environment

3-LS4-1
Use fossils to provide evidence of organisms and environments long ago

3-LS4-2
Variations in characteristics among individuals of the same species may provide advantages

3-LS4-3
Survival in habitats

3-LS4-4
When the environment changes, animals and plants may change

 

Earth Science

3-ESS2-1
Typical weather conditions during a particular season

3-ESS2-2
Climates in different regions of the world

3-ESS3-1
