SC.5.N.1: The Practice of Science

SC.5.N.1.B: The processes of science frequently do not correspond to the traditional portrayal of "the scientific method."
SC.5.N.1.C: Scientific argumentation is a necessary part of scientific inquiry and plays an important role in the generation and validation of scientific knowledge.
SC.5.N.1.1: Define a problem, use appropriate reference materials to support scientific understanding, plan and carry out scientific investigations of various types such as: systematic observations, experiments requiring the identification of variables, collecting and organizing data, interpreting data in charts, tables, and graphics, analyze information, make predictions, and defend conclusions.
SC.5.N.1.2: Explain the difference between an experiment and other types of scientific investigation.
SC.5.N.1.3: Recognize and explain the need for repeated experimental trials.

SC.5.N.2: The Characteristics of Scientific Knowledge
SC.5.N.2.1: Recognize and explain that science is grounded in empirical observations that are testable; explanation must always be linked with evidence.
SC.5.N.2.2: Recognize and explain that when scientific investigations are carried out, the evidence produced by those investigations should be replicable by others.
SC.5.E.5: Humans continue to explore Earth's place in space. Gravity and energy influence the formation of galaxies, including our own Milky Way Galaxy, stars, the Solar System, and Earth. Humankind's need to explore continues to lead to the development of knowledge and understanding of our Solar System.
SC.5.E.5.2: Recognize the major common characteristics of all planets and compare/contrast the properties of inner and outer planets.
SC.5.E.5.3: Distinguish among the following objects of the Solar System -- Sun, planets, moons, asteroids, comets -- and identify Earth's position in it.
SC.5.E.7: Humans continue to explore the interactions among water, air, and land. Air and water are in constant motion that results in changing conditions that can be observed over time.
SC.5.E.7.1: Create a model to explain the parts of the water cycle. Water can be a gas, a liquid, or a solid and can go back and forth from one state to another.
SC.5.E.7.2: Recognize that the ocean is an integral part of the water cycle and is connected to all of Earth's water reservoirs via evaporation and precipitation processes.
SC.5.E.7.3: Recognize how air temperature, barometric pressure, humidity, wind speed and direction, and precipitation determine the weather in a particular place and time.
SC.5.E.7.5: Recognize that some of the weather-related differences, such as temperature and humidity, are found among different environments, such as swamps, deserts, and mountains.
SC.5.E.7.6: Describe characteristics (temperature and precipitation) of different climate zones as they relate to latitude, elevation, and proximity to bodies of water.
SC.5.P.8: Properties of Matter
SC.5.P.8.B: Objects and substances can be classified by their physical and chemical properties. Mass is the amount of matter (or "stuff") in an object. Weight, on the other hand, is the measure of force of attraction (gravitational force) between an object and Earth.
SC.5.P.9: Changes in Matter
SC.5.P.9.A: Matter can undergo a variety of changes.
SC.5.P.9.B: Matter can be changed physically or chemically.
SC.5.P.9.1: Investigate and describe that many physical and chemical changes are affected by temperature.
SC.5.P.10: Forms of Energy
SC.5.P.10.B: Energy exists in many forms and has the ability to do work or cause a change.
SC.5.P.10.1: Investigate and describe some basic forms of energy, including light, heat, sound, electrical, chemical, and mechanical.
SC.5.P.10.2: Investigate and explain that energy has the ability to cause motion or create change.
SC.5.P.10.3: Investigate and explain that an electrically-charged object can attract an uncharged object and can either attract or repel another charged object without any contact between the objects.
SC.5.P.10.4: Investigate and explain that electrical energy can be transformed into heat, light, and sound energy, as well as the energy of motion.
SC.5.P.11: Energy Transfer and Transformations
SC.5.P.11.A: Waves involve a transfer of energy without a transfer of matter.
SC.5.P.11.B: Water and sound waves transfer energy through a material.
SC.5.P.11.C: Light waves can travel through a vacuum and through matter.
SC.5.P.11.1: Investigate and illustrate the fact that the flow of electricity requires a closed circuit (a complete loop).
SC.5.P.11.2: Identify and classify materials that conduct electricity and materials that do not.
SC.5.P.13: Forces and Changes in Motion
SC.5.P.13.A: It takes energy to change the motion of objects.
SC.5.P.13.C: Some forces act through physical contact, while others act at a distance.
SC.5.P.13.1: Identify familiar forces that cause objects to move, such as pushes or pulls, including gravity acting on falling objects.
SC.5.P.13.2: Investigate and describe that the greater the force applied to it, the greater the change in motion of a given object.
SC.5.P.13.3: Investigate and describe that the more mass an object has, the less effect a given force will have on the object's motion.
SC.5.L.14: Organization and Development of Living Organisms
SC.5.L.14.B: All plants and animals, including humans, have internal parts and external structures that function to keep them alive and help them grow and reproduce.
SC.5.L.14.1: Identify the organs in the human body and describe their functions, including the skin, brain, heart, lungs, stomach, liver, intestines, pancreas, muscles and skeleton, reproductive organs, kidneys, bladder, and sensory organs.
SC.5.L.15: Diversity and Evolution of Living Organisms
SC.5.L.15.A: Earth is home to a great diversity of living things, but changes in the environment can affect their survival.
SC.5.L.17.A: Plants and animals, including humans, interact with and depend upon each other and their environment to satisfy their basic needs.
