Core Curriculum Content Standards
5.5.A: Matter, Energy and Organization in Living Systems
5.5.A.1: Identify the roles that organisms may serve in a food chain.
5.5.A.2: Differentiate between the needs of plants and those of animals.
5.5.A.4: Describe the basic functions of the major systems of the human body including, but not limited to:
5.5.A.4.b: circulatory system.
5.6.A: Structure and Properties of Matter
5.6.A.2: Observe that water can be a liquid or a solid and can change from one form to the other and the mass remains the same.
5.6.A.3: Recognize that water, as an example of matter, can exist as a solid, liquid or gas and can be transformed from one state to another by heating or cooling.
5.7.A: Motion and Forces
5.7.A.1: Recognize that changes in the speed or direction of a moving object are caused by force and that the greater the force, the greater the change in motion will be.
5.7.A.2: Recognize that some forces can act at a distance.
5.7.B: Energy Transformations
5.7.B.1: Identify sources of heat and demonstrate that heat can be transferred from one object to another.
5.7.B.2: Identify sources of light and demonstrate that light can be reflected from some surfaces and pass through others.
5.7.B.3: Use devices that show electricity producing heat, light, sound, and magnetic effects.
5.8.B: Atmosphere and Water
5.8.B.4: Observe that when liquid water disappears, it turns into a gas (vapor) in the air and can reappear as a liquid when cooled, or as a solid if cooled below its freezing point.
5.9.A: Earth, Moon, Sun System
5.9.A.2: Recognize and describe the phases of the moon.
5.9.B: Solar System
