South Carolina Standards & Learning

SC.3.P. PHYSICAL SCIENCE: PROPERTIES AND CHANGES IN MATTER
3.P.2. The student will demonstrate an understanding of the properties used to classify matter and how heat energy can change matter from one state to another.
3.P.2A. Conceptual Understanding: Matter exists in several different states and is classified based on observable and measurable properties. Matter can be changed from one state to another when heat (thermal energy) is added or removed.
Students who demonstrate this understanding can:
3.P.2A.1. Analyze and interpret data from observations and measurements to describe and compare the physical properties of matter (including length, mass, temperature, and volume of liquids).
3.P.2A.2. Construct explanations using observations and measurements to describe how matter can be classified as a solid, liquid or gas.
SC.3.E. EARTH SCIENCE: EARTH’S MATERIALS AND PROCESSES
3.E.4. The student will demonstrate an understanding of the composition of Earth and the processes that shape features of Earth’s surface.
3.E.4B. Conceptual Understanding: Earth’s surface has changed over time by natural processes and by human activities. Humans can take steps to reduce the impact of these changes.
Students who demonstrate this understanding can:
3.E.4B.2. Plan and conduct scientific investigations to determine how natural processes (including weathering, erosion, and gravity) shape Earth’s surface.
