PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This unit contains all the learning outcomes aligned with the pan-Canadian Science curriculum for Grade 3 Science. There are nine lessons with full lesson plans, experiments and activities for students.

A partial look at a sample lesson plan that is part of this unit is:

Lesson Two: Structures in Nature

Specific Outcomes:
1. Students will examine the properties of materials used in natural and human-built structures
2. Students will identify problems to be solved relating to the properties of materials in structures
3. Students will analyze the purpose or function of various natural and human-built structures
4. Students will examine how some human-built structures are modelled on shapes and structures found in nature

Class Discussion:

Show students a variety of pictures of structures found in nature, such as a beehive, a honeycomb, a beaver dam and ant hill. Then show pictures of human-built structures that are similar in design to these natural structures.

Students will list structures that are natural and those that are human-built. They will make predictions about their strength and stability based on the shape. Have them look at shapes within human-built structures, such as squares or rectangles within a ladder, or arch shapes in windows and doors. Ask students what similarities exist between a bird and an airplane.
