    Bundle Description
    Use this bundle to help your students combine their science and literacy learning! This bundle covers the NGSS topic Interdependent Relationships in Ecosystems. It includes 3-LS2-1, 3-LS4-1, 3-LS4-3, and 3-LS4-4. This set is perfect for informal or formal assessment of your elementary students’ ability to write about science! I love using them for both writing and science grades too!

    3-LS2-1: Construct an argument that some animals form groups that help members survive.
    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-LS4-3: 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.*
