Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform.

Standards: Science

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

Heredity: Inheritance and Variation of Traits

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.
