Science Worksheets and Study Guides Third Grade. All About Energy

The resources above correspond to the standards listed below:

Vermont Standards

VT.ESS. Earth/Space Science
Enduring Knowledge: Natural resources and agricultural systems are managed for specific purposes and in a variety of ways.
S3-4:50. Students demonstrate their understanding why and how natural resources are managed by:
S3-4:50.3. Identifying and assess both beneficial and detrimental ways that humans obtain, use and dispose of natural/agricultural resource products. (DOK 3-4)
VT.PS. Physical Science
Enduring Knowledge (Force): Force is an influence that can change the motion of an object.
S3-4:21. Students demonstrate their understanding of Force by:
S3-4:21.1. Investigating and describing how different amounts of force can change the position or direction of motion of an object. (DOK 2)
Enduring Knowledge: Energy is necessary for change to occur. It is the ability of matter to bring about change. There are many forms of energy. The total energy in the universe is constant. Energy can be transformed and transferred, but not destroyed (Conservation of Energy). Energy transfers and transformations exhibit the characteristics of systems with inputs, processes and outputs, as well as connections to other systems.
S3-4:28. Students demonstrate their understanding of Light Energy by:
S3-4:28.1. Investigating with flashlights as well as other light sources and describing how light rays reflect off of objects. (DOK 2)
