New CCSS Standards for 3rd Grade Science

At the end of the school year, each of the elementary schools in our district had a representative get together to create a new grade card that aligns with the CCSS curriculum. We have had meetings for the last two years to help up learn more about math and reading CCSS. In my opinion, the Science curriculum is where most of the changes will be.

Keep: Forces & Motion, Investigations/Experiments, Impacts on the Environment

Out with: Matter, Sound, & Rocks

In with: Hazardous Weather, Animal/Plant Survival, Magnetic & Static Electricity

I have been Pinterest-ing and TpT-ing to find some resources for these new standards. I hope this help those 3rd grade teachers out there!

Hazardous Weather
