S5P2: Students will explain the difference between a physical change and a chemical change.

S5P2.a: Investigate physical changes by separating mixtures and manipulating (cutting, tearing, folding) paper to demonstrate examples of physical change.

Density Experiment: Slice and Dice

S5P2.b: Recognize that the changes in state of water (water vapor/steam, liquid, ice) are due to temperature differences and are examples of physical change.

Phases of Water

S5P2.c: Investigate the properties of a substance before, during, and after a chemical reaction to find evidence of change.

Chemical Changes

S5P3: Students will investigate the electricity, magnetism, and their relationship.

S5P3.b: Determine the necessary components for completing an electric circuit.

Circuit Builder

S5P3.c: Investigate common materials to determine if they are insulators or conductors of electricity.

Circuit Builder

S5L2: Students will recognize that offspring can resemble parents in inherited traits and learned behaviors.

S5L2.a: Compare and contrast the characteristics of learned behaviors and of inherited traits.


S5L3: Students will diagram and label parts of various cells (plant, animal, single-celled, multi-celled).

S5L3.a: Use magnifiers such as microscopes or hand lenses to observe cells and their structure.

Cell Structure

S5L3.b: Identify parts of a plant cell (membrane, wall, cytoplasm, nucleus, chloroplasts) and of an animal cell (membrane, cytoplasm, and nucleus) and determine the function of the parts.

Cell Energy Cycle
Cell Structure

S5L4: Students will relate how microorganisms benefit or harm larger organisms.

S5L4.b: Identify harmful microorganisms and explain why they are harmful.
