Science Worksheets and Study Guides Fifth Grade. The solar system

The resources above correspond to the standards listed below:

Kentucky Standards

KY.CC. Core Content for Assessment v.4.1
SC-05-2.3. The Earth and the Universe: Development of conceptual understandings about processes that shape the Earth begin at the elementary level with understanding what Earth materials are and that change occurs. At the heart of elementary students' initial understanding of the Earth's place in the universe is direct observation of the earth-sun-moon system. Students can derive important conceptual understandings about the system as they describe interactions resulting in shadows, moon phases and day and night. The use of models and observance of patterns to explain common phenomena is essential to building a conceptual foundation and supporting ideas with evidence at all levels.
SC-05-2.3.5. Earth/Space Science: Students will compare components of our solar system, including using models/representations that illustrate the system and resulting interactions.
KY.PS. Program of Studies 2006
SC-5-EU. Big Idea: Grade: The Earth and the Universe (Earth/Space Science) - The Earth system is in a constant state of change. These changes affect life on earth in many ways. Development of conceptual understandings about processes that shape the Earth begin at the elementary level with understanding what Earth materials are and that change occurs. At the heart of elementary students' initial understanding of the Earth's place in the universe is direct observation of the Earth-sun-moon system. Students can derive important conceptual understandings about the system as they describe interactions resulting in shadows, moon phases, and day and night. The use of models and observance of patterns to explain common phenomena is essential to building a conceptual foundation and supporting ideas with evidence at all levels. (Academic Expectations 2.1, 2.2, 2.5)
SC-5-EU-S-6. Program of Studies: Skills and Concepts - Students will use a variety of models and graphic representations to obtain and organize data in order to compare the major components of our solar system
SC-5-EU-U-5. Program of Studies: Understandings - Students will understand that observations, models and diagrams of the solar system illustrate the position and relationship of the earth, sun, and moon within the larger system of planets and other celestial bodies. Even though they are all parts of the same system, a comparison of their properties reveals great differences among celestial bodies.
