This huge resource includes all of my resources for 3rd-grade NGSS Life Science. This collection of resources cover the life science standards for NGSS. Students will explore in hands-on, inquiry-based lessons. They will read nonfiction scientific passages in a close reading format. They will respond on response pages that include text-dependent questions and are aligned with CCSS for Reading informational text for specific 3rd grade standards. Students will record information in interactive notebook flaps and folds that go with each activity. Scientific background and questions for teachers to ask are included.
Units Included In this Bundle:
- Habitats and Adaptations
- Animals Live in Groups
- Rabbit Life Cycle
- Butterfly Life Cycle
- Life Cycle of a Sunflower
- Pumpkin Unit
- Inherited and Acquired Traits
- Camouflage and Mimicry
All Life Science Disciplinary Core Ideas are addressed:
Molecules to Organisms: Structure and Processes
Ecosystem: Interactions, Energy and Dynamic
Heredity: Inheritance and Variation of Traits
Biological Diversity: Unity and Diversity
ALL NGSS for 3rd Grade Life Science Addressed
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.
Construct an argument that some animals form groups that help members survive.
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-LS4-1. Analyze and interpret data from fossils to provide evidence of the organisms and the environments in which they lived long ago.
3-LS4-2. 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.
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-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.
Science Concepts Include:
Life cycle of butterflies
Life cycle of sunflowers
Life cycle of a rabbit
Life cycle of a pumpkin
Why some animals live in groups?
Variations in Traits
Fossils as evidence of past life on Earth
