5-ESS: Earth and Space Sciences

5-ESS1: Earth’s Place in the Universe

5-ESS1-2: Use a model to communicate Earth’s relationship to the Sun, Moon, and other stars that explain (a) why people on Earth experience day and night, (b) patterns in daily changes in length and direction of shadows over a day, and (c) changes in the apparent position of the Sun, Moon, and stars at different times during a day, over a month, and over a year.

5-ESS2-2: Describe and graph the relative amounts of salt water in the ocean; fresh water in lakes, rivers, and ground water; and fresh water frozen in glaciers and polar ice caps to provide evidence about the availability of fresh water in Earth’s biosphere.

5-ESS3: Earth and Human Activity

5-ESS3-1: Obtain and combine information about ways communities reduce human impact on the Earth’s resources and environment by changing an agricultural, industrial, or community practice or process.

5-LS: Life Science

5-LS1: From Molecules to Organisms: Structures and Processes

5-LS1-1: Ask testable questions about the process by which plants use air, water, and energy from sunlight to produce sugars and plant materials needed for growth and reproduction.

Plants and Snails

5-LS2: Ecosystems: Interactions, Energy, and Dynamics

5-LS2-1: Develop a model to describe the movement of matter among producers, consumers, decomposers, and the air, water, and soil in the environment to (a) show that plants produce sugars and plant materials, (b) show that animals can eat plants and/or other animals for food, and (c) show that some organisms, including fungi and bacteria, break down dead organisms and recycle some materials back to the air and soil.

5-PS: Physical Science

5-PS1: Matter and Its Interactions

5-PS1-1: Use a particle model of matter to explain common phenomena involving gases, and phase changes between gas and liquid and between liquid and solid.

Phase Changes
Phases of Water

5-PS1-2: Measure and graph the weights (masses) of substances before and after a reaction or phase change to provide evidence that regardless of the type of change that occurs when heating, cooling, or combining substances, the total weight (mass) of matter is conserved.

Chemical Changes

5-PS1-3: Make observations and measurements of substances to describe characteristic properties of each, including color, hardness, reflectivity, electrical conductivity, thermal conductivity, response to magnetic forces, and solubility.

Chemical Changes

Mineral Identification
Mystery Powder Analysis
Solubility and Temperature

5-PS1-4: Conduct an experiment to determine whether the mixing of two or more substances results in new substances with new properties (a chemical reaction) or not (a mixture).

Chemical Changes

5-PS2: Motion and Stability: Forces and Interactions

5-PS2-1: Support an argument with evidence that the gravitational force exerted by Earth on objects is directed toward Earth’s center.

Free Fall Tower
Gravity Pitch

5-PS3: Energy

5-PS3-1: Use a model to describe that the food animals digest (a) contains energy that was once energy from the Sun, and (b) provides energy and nutrients for life processes, including body repair, growth, motion, body warmth, and reproduction.
