Standards: Science

The science standards include both NGSS and Michigan Science Standards.
3-LS3-1 (1)
Education Level 3

Analyze and interpret data to provide evidence that plants and animals have traits inherited from parents and that variation of these traits exists in a group of similar organisms.

3-LS3-2 (1)
Education Level 3

Use evidence to support the explanation that traits can be influenced by the environment.

3-LS4 (1)
Education Level 3

Biological Evolution: Unity and Diversity

3-LS4-1 (2)
Education Level 3

Analyze and interpret data from fossils to provide evidence of the organisms and the environments in which they lived long ago.

3-LS4-2 (1)
Education Level 3

Use evidence to construct an explanation for how the variations in characteristics among individuals of the same species may provide advantages in surviving finding mates and reproducing.

3-LS4-3 (1)
Education Level 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 (2)
Education Level 3

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.

3-PS2 (0)
Education Level 3

Motion and Stability: Forces and Interactions

3-PS2-1 (1)
Education Level 3

Plan and conduct an investigation to provide evidence of the effects of balanced and unbalanced forces on the motion of an object.

3-PS2-2 (1)
Education Level 3

Make observations and/or measurements of an object's motion to provide evidence that a pattern can be used to predict future motion.

3-PS2-3 (1)
Education Level 3

Ask questions to determine cause and effect relationships of electric or magnetic interactions between two objects not in contact with each other.

3-PS2-4 (1)
Education Level 3

Define a simple design problem that can be solved by applying scientific ideas about magnets.

4-ESS1 (0)
Education Level 4

Earth's Place in the Universe

4-ESS1-1 (1)
Education Level 4

Identify evidence from patterns in rock formations and fossils in rock layers to support an explanation for changes in a landscape over time.

4-ESS1-1 MI (0)
Education Level 4
Identify evidence from patterns in rock formations and fossils in rock layers to support possible explanations of Michigan’s geological changes over time.
