SC.3.E Earth and Space Science

  • SC.3.E.5 Humans continue to explore Earth's place in space. Gravity and energy influence the formation of galaxies, including our own Milky Way Galaxy, stars, the Solar System, and Earth. Humankind's need to explore continues to lead to the development of knowledge and understanding of our Solar System.

    • SC.3.E.5.1 Explain that stars can be different; some are smaller, some are larger, and some appear brighter than others; all except the Sun are so far away that they look like points of light.

    • SC.3.E.5.2 Identify the Sun as a star that emits energy; some of it in the form of light.

    • SC.3.E.5.3 Recognize that the Sun appears large and bright because it is the closest star to Earth.

    • SC.3.E.5.4 Explore the Law of Gravity by demonstrating that gravity is a force that can be overcome.

    • SC.3.E.5.5 Investigate that the number of stars that can be seen through telescopes is dramatically greater than those seen by the unaided eye.

  • SC.3.E.6 Humans continue to explore the composition and structure of the surface of Earth. External sources of energy have continuously altered the features of Earth by means of both constructive and destructive forces. All life, including human civilization, is dependent on Earth's water and natural resources.

    • SC.3.E.6.1 Demonstrate that radiant energy from the Sun can heat objects and when the Sun is not present, heat may be lost.
