2014 Oklahoma Academic Standards for Science

3-PS2-1 Plan and conduct investigations on the effects of balanced and unbalanced forces on the motion of an object. (Connected to 3-PS2-2) 

3-PS2-2 Make observations and/or measurements of the object’s motion to provide evidence that a pattern can be used to predict future motion. (Connected to 3-PS2-1) 

3-PS2-3 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 Define a simple design problem that can be solved by applying scientific ideas about magnets.

3-LS1-1 Develop models to describe that organisms have unique and diverse life cycles but all have in common birth, growth, reproduction, and death. 

3-LS2-1 Construct an argument that some animals form groups that help members survive.   

3-LS3-1 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 Use evidence to support the explanation that traits can be influenced by the environment.   
3-LS4-1 Analyze and interpret data from fossils to provide evidence of the organisms and the environments in which they lived long ago.  
3-LS4-2 Use evidence to construct an explanation for how the variations in characteristics among individuals of the same species may provide advantages in surviving and reproducing.  

3-LS4-3 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 Make a claim about the merit of a solution to a problem caused when the environment changes an the types of plants and animals that live there may change. 

3-ESS2-1 Represent data in tables and graphical displays to describe typical weather conditions expected during a particular season.

3-ESS2-2 Obtain and combine information to describe climates in different regions of the world. 
3-ESS3-1 Make a claim about the merit of a design solution that reduces the impacts of a weather-related hazard.
