3rd Grade teachers in my district "unwrapped" the state standards last year. These are signs to post in the classroom that show the "I Can" statements we felt would support the Ohio Grade 3 Physical Science Content Standards.
Content Statement 1: All objects and substances in the natural world are composed of matter. (Five "I can" statements)
Content Statement 2: Matter exists in different states, each of which has different properties. (Six "I can" statements)
Content Statement 3: Heat, electricity, light and sound are forms of energy. (3 "I can" statements)
I also have 28 Physical science vocabulary cards that match these statements for a science word wall.
