Third Grade Life Science: Time Will Tell
How do the changes in an environment affect what lives there?
Take your third grade scientists on a virtual field trip that will blast them to the past as they think about evidence that tells us more about the history of a place. Students will also learn about present day environments to explore how changing surroundings can affect how well organisms who live there can survive. Encourage your third graders to construct scientific explanations anchored in evidence and prepare them to engage in argument!

Students will play a game using household supplies to model how much food a bird can catch in a given environment. Using data from the game, students will construct an argument about how certain adaptations, like beaks, affect survival when the environment changes.
