Grade Level Expectations
5.1a.4: Describe the properties of materials that reflect or absorb sound.
5.1b.1: Provide evidence that light travels in straight lines away from a source in all directions.
5.1b.3: Demonstrate that white light is composed of many colors.
5.1b.4: Explain that all visible objects are reflecting some light to the human eye.
5.1b.5: Contrast the way light is reflected by smooth, shiny objects (e.g., mirror or pool of water) and how it is reflected by other objects.
5.1b.6: Measure angles to predict the path of light reflected by a mirror.
5.1b.8: Design and conduct light absorption experiments that vary the size, length, direction and clarity of a shadow by changing the position of the light-blocking object or the light source.
5.3.2: Construct models demonstrating Earth?s rotation on its axis, the moon?s revolution around the Earth, and the Earth and moon revolving around the sun.
5.3.3: Distinguish between the sun as a source of light and the moon as a reflection of that light.
5.3.4: Observe and record the moon?s appearance over time and analyze findings to describe the cyclical changes in its appearance from Earth (moon phases).
5.3.5: Relate the moon phases to changes in the moon?s position relative to the Earth and sun during its 29-day revolution around the Earth.
