    Are you struggling to find engaging science materials for your third grade NGSS lessons? These science units include so many activities and resources that you can use! There are mini books, vocabulary, posters, hands-on activities, passages, and so much more!

    This is a bundle of my four 3rd Grade NGSS units. Here's a breakdown of the topics taught in each unit.

    Weather & Climate

    • Weather Tables and Graphs
    • Reducing Weather Hazards
    • Climates of the World

    *Climates covered in this unit are:

    Desert, Mediterranean, Temperate, Polar, Mountain, Tropical

    Forces & Interactions

    • Balanced & Unbalanced Forces
    • Patterns in Motion
    • Electric & Magnetic Interactions
    • Magnetic Solutions to Problems

    Interdependent Relationships in Ecosystems

    • Animals in Groups
    • Fossils
    • Adaptations and Survival
    • Environmental Changes

    Inheritance and Variations of Traits: Life Cycles and Traits

    • Plant and Animal Life Cycles
    • Inherited Traits
    • Environmental Influences on Traits
    • Advantages for Survival

    Included are mini books, hands on science activities, non-fiction passages, practice pages, interactive notebook pages, and much more! Download the HUGE preview to see what's included in this 600+ page bundle!

    ️❤️ Why Teachers Love This Bundle️❤️

    • Engaging activities that students ENJOY
    • Easy to integrate with other science curricula
    • Many options to choose from to help you hit the standards
    • Teaches the standards in a kid-friendly and age-appropriate way
    • Encourages critical thinking and problem solving


    ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ I love these units. They are so fun and engaging and everything I need to teach science. I like how it includes interactive notebook pieces, vocab and experiments.

    ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐I love how well the vocabulary and activities matches with each NGSS standard. Our textbooks left us in a lurch because they talk about pieces of the standards but don't hit the nail on the head like you do. Thank you!

    Plan and conduct an investigation to provide evidence of the effects of balanced and unbalanced forces on the motion of an object. Examples could include an unbalanced force on one side of a ball can make it start moving; and, balanced forces pushing on a box from both sides will not produce any motion at all. Assessment is limited to one variable at a time: number, size, or direction of forces. Assessment does not include quantitative force size, only qualitative and relative. Assessment is limited to gravity being addressed as a force that pulls objects down.
    Make a claim about the merit of a design solution that reduces the impacts of a weather-related hazard. Examples of design solutions to weather-related hazards could include barriers to prevent flooding, wind resistant roofs, and lighting rods.
    Analyze and interpret data from fossils to provide evidence of the organisms and the environments in which they lived long ago. Examples of data could include type, size, and distributions of fossil organisms. Examples of fossils and environments could include marine fossils found on dry land, tropical plant fossils found in Arctic areas, and fossils of extinct organisms. Assessment does not include identification of specific fossils or present plants and animals. Assessment is limited to major fossil types and relative ages.
    Represent data in tables and graphical displays to describe typical weather conditions expected during a particular season. Examples of data could include average temperature, precipitation, and wind direction. Assessment of graphical displays is limited to pictographs and bar graphs. Assessment does not include climate change.
    Ask questions to determine cause and effect relationships of electric or magnetic interactions between two objects not in contact with each other. Examples of an electric force could include the force on hair from an electrically charged balloon and the electrical forces between a charged rod and pieces of paper; examples of a magnetic force could include the force between two permanent magnets, the force between an electromagnet and steel paperclips, and the force exerted by one magnet versus the force exerted by two magnets. Examples of cause and effect relationships could include how the distance between objects affects strength of the force and how the orientation of magnets affects the direction of the magnetic force. Assessment is limited to forces produced by objects that can be manipulated by students, and electrical interactions are limited to static electricity.
