TX.STAAR.5. STAAR Grade 5 Science Assessment
Reporting Category 1: Matter and Energy - The student will demonstrate an understanding of the properties of matter and energy and their interactions.
(5.5) Matter and energy. The student knows that matter has measurable physical properties and those properties determine how matter is classified, changed, and used. The student is expected to:
5.5 (A) Classify matter based on physical properties, including mass, magnetism, physical state (solid, liquid, and gas), relative density (sinking and floating), solubility in water, and the ability to conduct or insulate thermal energy or electric energy. Readiness Standard (STAAR)
Reporting Category 2: Force, Motion, and Energy - The student will demonstrate an understanding of force, motion, and energy and their relationships.
(5.6) Force, motion, and energy. The student knows that energy occurs in many forms and can be observed in cycles, patterns, and systems. The student is expected to:
5.6 (A) Explore the uses of energy, including mechanical, light, thermal, electrical, and sound energy. Readiness Standard (STAAR)
