STEM.S. SCIENCE: Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)

NGSS.5-ESS. EARTH AND SPACE SCIENCE

5-ESS2. Earth’s Systems
Students who demonstrate understanding can:
5-ESS2-1. Develop a model using an example to describe ways the geosphere, biosphere, hydrosphere, and/or atmosphere interact.

NGSS.5-LS. LIFE SCIENCE

5-LS1. From Molecules to Organisms: Structures and Processes
Students who demonstrate understanding can:
5-LS1-1. Support an argument that plants get the materials they need for growth chiefly from air and water.
5-LS2. Ecosystems: Interactions, Energy, and Dynamics
Students who demonstrate understanding can:
5-LS2-1. Develop a model to describe the movement of matter among plants, animals, decomposers, and the environment.

NGSS.5-PS. PHYSICAL SCIENCE

5-PS1. Matter and Its Interactions
Students who demonstrate understanding can:
5-PS1-1. Develop a model to describe that matter is made of particles too small to be seen.5-PS1-3. Make observations and measurements to identify materials based on their properties.
5-PS2. Motion and Stability: Forces and Interactions
Students who demonstrate understanding can:
5-PS2-1. Support an argument that the gravitational force exerted by Earth on objects is directed down.
5-PS3. Energy
Students who demonstrate understanding can:
5-PS3-1. Use models to describe that energy in animals’ food (used for body repair, growth, motion, and to maintain body warmth) was once energy from the sun.
