5.1: Physical Science

5.1.1: Describe and measure the volume and weight of a sample of a given material.

Weight and Mass

5.1.2: Describe the difference between weight and mass. Understand that weight is dependent on gravity and mass is the amount of matter in a given substance or material.

Mineral Identification
Weight and Mass

5.1.3: Demonstrate that regardless of how parts of an object are assembled the weight of the whole object is identical to the sum of the weight of the parts; however, the volume can differ from the sum of the volumes.

Chemical Changes

5.2: Earth Science

5.2.1: Recognize that our earth is part of the solar system in which the sun, an average star, is the central and largest body. Observe that our solar system includes the sun, moon, seven other planets and their moons, and many other smaller objects like asteroids and comets.

Comparing Earth and Venus
Solar System

5.2.2: Observe and use pictures to record how the sun appears to move across the sky in the same general way every day but rises and sets in different places as the seasons change.

Seasons: Earth, Moon, and Sun

5.2.4: Use a calendar to record observations of the shape of the moon and the rising and setting times over the course of a month. Based on the observations, describe patterns in the moon cycle.

Phases of the Moon

5.3: Life Science

5.3.1: Observe and classify common Indiana organisms as producers, consumers, decomposers, predator and prey based on their relationships and interactions with other organisms in their ecosystem.

Forest Ecosystem
Prairie Ecosystem

5.3.2: Investigate the action of different decomposers and compare their role in an ecosystem with that of producers and consumers.

Forest Ecosystem

5.4: Science, Engineering and Technology

5.4.2: Investigate the purpose of prototypes and models when designing a solution to a problem and how limitations in cost and design features might affect their construction.
