3rd Grade - SCIENCE standards
• I can describe the shape of Earth and the moon as spherical.
• I can explain that the sun is the source of light that lights the moon.
• I can list the differences in the physical appearance of Earth and the moon as viewed from space.
• I can describe the motions of Earth.
• I can use a chart to show that the moon orbits Earth approximately every 28 days.
• I can use a model of Earth to demonstrate that Earth rotates on its axis once every 24 hours to produce the night and day cycle.
• I can use a model to demonstrate why it seems to a person on Earth that the sun, planets, and stars appear to move across the sky.
• I can identify characteristics of living things.
• I can identify characteristics of nonliving things.
• I can classify living and nonliving things in an environment.
• I can identify living and nonliving things in a small environment composed of living and nonliving things.
• I can predict the effects of changes in the environment on a living organism.
• I can observe and record the effect of changes upon the living organisms and nonliving things in a small-scale environment.
• I can compare a small-scale environment to a larger environment.
• I can pose a question about the interaction between living and nonliving things in the environment that could be investigated by observation.
• I can show that objects at rest will not move unless a force is applied to them.
• I can compare the forces of pushing and pulling.
• I can investigate how forces applied through simple machines affect the direction and/or amount of resulting force.
• I can predict and observe what happens when a force is applied to an object.
• I can compare and chart the relative effects of a force of the same strength on objects of different weight.
• I can compare the relative effects of forces of different strengths on an object.
• I can conduct a simple investigation to show what happens when objects of various weights collide with one another.
• I can show how these concepts apply to various activities in terms of force, motion, speed, direction, and distance.
• I can demonstrate that a force is required to overcome gravity.
• I can use measurement to demonstrate that heavier objects require more force than lighter ones to overcome gravity.
• I can compare how the motion of an object rolling up or down a hill changes with the incline of the hill.
• I can observe, record, and compare the effect of gravity on several objects in motion.
• I can pose questions about gravity and forces.
• I can compare temperatures in sunny and shady places.
• I can observe and report how sunlight affects plant growth.
• I can provide examples of how sunlight affects people and animals by providing heat and light.
• I can identify and discuss as a class some misconceptions about heat sources.
• I can identify and classify mechanical and electrical sources of heat.
• I can list examples of mechanical or electrical devices that produce light.
• I can predict, measure, and graph the temperature changes produced by a variety of mechanical machines and electrical devices while they are operating.
• I can identify several examples of how rubbing one object against another produces heat.
• I can compare relative differences in the amount of heat given off or force required to move an object over lubricated/non-lubricated surfaces and smooth/rough surfaces.
3rd Grade - SOCIAL STUDIES standards
• I can identify the geographic features common to areas where human settlements exist.
• I can use map features to make logical inferences and describe relationships between human settlement and physical geography.

• I can compare perspectives of various communities toward the natural environment.
• I can make inferences about the positive and negative impacts of human-caused change to the physical environment.
• I can identify the elements of culture.
• I can describe how stories, folktales, music, and artistic creations serve as expressions of culture.
• I can compare elements of the local community with communities from different parts of the world.
• I can identify and explain the interrelationship of the environment and community development.
• I can examine changes in communities that can or have occurred when two or more cultures interact.

• I can describe and compare early indigenous people of the Americas.
• I can analyze how these cultures changed with the arrival of people from Europe, and how the cultures of the Europeans changed.
• I can identify how indigenous people maintain cultural traditions today
• I can describe the rights and responsibilities inherent in being a contributing member of a community.
• I can list the responsibilities community members have to one another.
