3rd Grade OER Science Textbook for Utah SEEd Standards
The Utah Science Open Educational Resources (OER) textbook project was started to bring Utah teachers together to create a resource that aligns to Utah core science standards. The Utah Science OER textbooks are not intended to be curriculum as they do not include labs, assessments, or a teacher guide with answers. They are intended as a reference material for students with content to support teachers classroom instruction and help make sense of science concepts found in standards. This OER textbook is also available in other languages at https://www.uen.org/oer/index.shtml.
3rd Grade Sci-ber Text
From USBE, a fun, interactive online textbook. Correlates directly with Utah's science core curriculum.
3rd Grade Teacher Resource Book (TRB)
Great resource for teaching the core curriculum, including activities and background information.
What are the effects of gravity on bouncy balls?
Students will launch a rocket ship to five different space missions and learn that thrust is the force that is needed to get the rocket ship off the ground.
Let the cannon balls fly! You control the velocity and angle, so see if you can hit the target. Ready, set, fire!
Your Weight on Other Worlds
If you weigh 90 pounds here on Earth, how much would you weigh on Saturn? You might be surprised to find out.
