GA--Performance Standards (GPS)
S5CS1.a: Keep records of investigations and observations and do not alter the records later.
S5CS1.c: Offer reasons for findings and consider reasons suggested by others.
S5CS4.b: Use geometric figures, number sequences, graphs, diagrams, sketches, number lines, maps, and stories to represent corresponding features of objects, events, and processes in the real world. Identify ways in which the representations do not match their original counterparts.
S5CS4.c: Identify patterns of change in things - such as steady, repetitive, or irregular change - using records, tables, or graphs of measurements where appropriate.
S5CS7.a: Similar scientific investigations seldom produce exactly the same results, which may differ due to unexpected differences in whatever is being investigated, unrecognized differences in the methods or circumstances of the investigation, or observational uncertainties.
S5CS8.a: Scientific investigations may take many different forms, including observing what things are like or what is happening somewhere, collecting specimens for analysis, and doing experiments.
S5P2.a: Investigate physical changes by separating mixtures and manipulating (cutting, tearing, folding) paper to demonstrate examples of physical change.
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.
S5P2.c: Investigate the properties of a substance before, during, and after a chemical reaction to find evidence of change.
S5P3.b: Determine the necessary components for completing an electric circuit.
S5P3.c: Investigate common materials to determine if they are insulators or conductors of electricity.
S5L2.a: Compare and contrast the characteristics of learned behaviors and of inherited traits.
S5L3.a: Use magnifiers such as microscopes or hand lenses to observe cells and their 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.
S5L4.b: Identify harmful microorganisms and explain why they are harmful.
