5.P: Physical Sciences

5.P1U1.1: Analyze and interpret data to explain that matter of any type can be subdivided into particles too small to see and, in a closed system, if properties change or chemical reactions occur, the amount of matter stays the same.

Chemical Changes

5.P1U1.2: Plan and carry out investigations to demonstrate that some substances combine to form new substances with different properties and others can be mixed without taking on new properties.

Chemical Changes

5.P2U1.3: Construct an explanation using evidence to demonstrate that objects can affect other objects even when they are not touching.

Conduction and Convection
Free Fall Tower
Gravity Pitch

5.P3U1.4: Obtain, analyze, and communicate evidence of the effects that balanced and unbalanced forces have on the motion of objects.

Force and Fan Carts

5.P4U1.6: Analyze and interpret data to determine how and where energy is transferred when objects move.

Energy Conversions
Sled Wars

5.E: Earth and Space Sciences

5.E2U1.7: Develop, revise, and use models based on evidence to construct explanations about the movement of the Earth and Moon within our solar system.

Phases of the Moon
Seasons: Earth, Moon, and Sun

5.E2U1.8: Obtain, analyze, and communicate evidence to support an explanation that the gravitational force of Earth on objects is directed toward the planet’s center.

Free Fall Tower
Gravity Pitch

5.L: Life Sciences

5.L3U1.9: Obtain, evaluate, and communicate information about patterns between the offspring of plants, and the offspring of animals (including humans); construct an explanation of how genetic information is passed from one generation to the next.


5.L3U1.10: Construct an explanation based on evidence that the changes in an environment can affect the development of the traits in a population of organisms.


5.L4U3.11: Obtain, evaluate, and communicate evidence about how natural and human-caused changes to habitats or climate can impact populations.
