NCES.3.P: Matter: Properties and Change

NCES.3.P.2: Understand the structure and properties of matter before and after they undergo a change.

NCES.3.P.2.2: Compare solids, liquids, and gases based on their basic properties.

Phases of Water

NCES.3.P.2.3: Summarize changes that occur to the observable properties of materials when different degrees of heat are applied to them, such as melting ice or ice cream, boiling water or an egg, or freezing water.

Phases of Water

NCES.3.P: Energy: Conservation and Transfer

NCES.3.P.3: Recognize how energy can be transferred from one object to another.

NCES.3.P.3.1: Recognize that energy can be transferred from one object to another by rubbing them against each other.

Conduction and Convection

NCES.3.P.3.2: Recognize that energy can be transferred from a warmer object to a cooler one by contact or at a distance and the cooler object gets warmer.

Conduction and Convection

NCES.3.E: Earth in the Universe

NCES.3.E.1: Recognize the major components and patterns observed in the earth/moon/sun system.

NCES.3.E.1.1: Recognize that the earth is part of a system called the solar system that includes the sun (a star), planets, and many moons and the earth is the third planet from the sun in our solar system.

Solar System

NCES.3.E.1.2: Recognize that changes in the length and direction of an object’s shadow indicate the apparent changing position of the Sun during the day although the patterns of the stars in the sky, to include the Sun, stay the same.

Seasons: Earth, Moon, and Sun

NCES.3.L: Ecosystems

NCES.3.L.2: Understand how plants survive in their environments.

NCES.3.L.2.1: Remember the function of the following structures as it relates to the survival of plants in their environments:

NCES.3.L.2.1.d: Flowers – attract pollinators and produce seeds for reproduction
