Grade 3 Science Standards and Benchmarks

Changes in Motion  MP3

  • Gravity – Earth pulls down on all objects with a force called gravity. With very few exceptions, objects fall to the ground no matter where the object is on the Earth.

  • Force – A force is either a push or a pull. The motion of objects can be changed by forces. The size of the change is related to the size of the force. The change is also related to the mass of the object on which the force is being exerted. When an object does not move in response to a force, it is because the environment is applying another force.

  • Speed – An object is in motion when its position is changing. The speed of an object is defined by how far it travels in a standard amount of time.

Light and Sound  MP4
 
  • Forms of Energy – Heat, electricity, light, and sound are forms of energy.

  • Light Properties – Light travels in straight lines. Shadows result from light not being able to pass through an object. When light travels at an angle from one substance to another (air and water), it changes directions.

  • Sound – Vibrating objects produce sound. The pitch of sound varies by changing the rate of vibration.

  • Conductive and Reflective Properties – Objects vary to the extent they absorb and reflect light energy and conduct heat and electricity.

Structures and Functions of Living Things MP1

  • Structures and Functions – Organisms have different structures that serve different functions in growth, survival, and reproduction.

  • Classification – Organisms can be classified on the basis of observable characteristics.

  • Environmental Adaptation – Different kinds of organisms have characteristics that help them to live in different environments.

Earth Materials, Change, and Resources MP2

  • Natural Resources – The supply of many natural resources is limited. Humans have devised methods for extending their use of natural resources through recycling, reuse, and renewal.

  • Human Impact – Humans depend on their natural and constructed environment. Humans change environments in ways that are helpful or harmful for themselves and other organisms.

  • Earth Materials – Earth materials that occur in nature include rocks, minerals, soils, water, and the gases of the atmosphere. Earth materials have properties that sustain plant and animal life.

  • Surface Changes – The surface of the Earth changes. Some changes are due to slow processes, such as erosion and weathering, and some changes are due to rapid processes, such as landslides, volcanic eruptions, and earthquakes.

  • Using Earth Materials – Some earth materials have properties that make them useful either in their present form or designed and modified to solve human problems. They can enhance the quality of life as in the case of materials used for building or fuels used for heating and transportation.
