Life Science - Grade 3
The experiments in this book fall under eleven topics that relate to two aspects of life science: Growth & Changes in Plants; and Animal Life Cycles. In each section you will find teacher notes designed to provide you guidance with the learning intention, the success criteria, materials needed, a lesson outline as well as some insight on what results to expect when the experiments are conducted. Suggestions for differentiation are also included so that all students can be successful in the learning environment.
Here is another series by On the Mark Press to enhance your science curriculum. With an emphasis in life science, each book includes 9 to 11 topics with lessons that include teacher notes, materials lists, lesson outlines, and activities with expected results. Written to meet grade level expectations in the area of life science, these worksheets will provide additional information for each topic, written activities, and hands-on application. Pages are reproducible for use with multiple students. First grade will look at the needs and characteristics of living things and explore the senses; second grade looks at small crawling and flying animals and animal growth and changes; third grade addresses growth and changes in plants and animal life cycles; fourth grade covers habitats and communities and plant growth and changes; fifth grade is human body systems, healthy bodies, and wetland ecosystems; and sixth grade covers the diversity of living things and a study of trees and forests.
