S.5.GS: General Science Content

(Framing Text): Structure and Properties of Matter

S.5.GS.1: develop a model to describe that matter is made of particles too small to be seen.

 Boyle's Law and Charles' Law
 Phase Changes
 Phases of Water
 Solubility and Temperature

S.5.GS.2: measure and graph quantities to provide evidence that regardless of the type of change that occurs when heating, cooling, or mixing substances, the total weight of matter is conserved.

 Chemical Changes

S.5.GS.3: make observations and measurements to identify materials based on their properties.

 Mineral Identification
 Mystery Powder Analysis

S.5.GS.4: conduct an investigation to determine whether the mixing of two or more substances results in new substances.

 Chemical Changes

(Framing Text): Matter and Energy in Organisms and Ecosystems

S.5.GS.5: use models to describe that energy in animals’ food (used for body repair, growth, motion, and to maintain body warmth) was once energy from the sun.

 Cell Energy Cycle
 Energy Conversions

S.5.GS.6: support an argument that plants get the materials they need for growth chiefly from air and water.

 Cell Energy Cycle
 Plants and Snails

S.5.GS.7: develop a model to describe the movement of matter among plants, animals, decomposers, and the environment.

 Cell Energy Cycle
 Food Chain
 Forest Ecosystem
 Plants and Snails
 Prairie Ecosystem

(Framing Text): Earth’s Systems

S.5.GS.8: develop a model using an example to describe ways the geosphere, biosphere, hydrosphere, and/or atmosphere interact.

 Carbon Cycle
 Coastal Winds and Clouds
 Greenhouse Effect
 Hurricane Motion
 Rock Cycle
 Water Cycle

S.5.GS.9: describe and graph the amounts and percentages of water and fresh water in various reservoirs to provide evidence about the distribution of water on Earth.

 Water Cycle

S.5.GS.10: obtain and combine information about ways individual communities use science ideas to protect the Earth’s resources and environment.

 Greenhouse Effect
 Water Pollution

(Framing Text): Space Systems: Stars and the Solar System

S.5.GS.11: support an argument that the gravitational force exerted by Earth on objects is directed down.

 Free Fall Tower
 Gravity Pitch

WV.NGCSO.SCI.S.5.GS.12: support an argument that differences in the apparent brightness of the sun compared to other stars is due to their relative distances from Earth.

 H-R Diagram

S.5.GS.13: represent data in graphical displays to reveal patterns of daily changes in length and direction of shadows, day and night, and the seasonal appearance of some stars in the night sky.

 Seasons: Earth, Moon, and Sun
 Summer and Winter
