SCI.LS: Life Science

SCI.LS1: Students use science and engineering practices, crosscutting concepts, and an understanding of structures and processes (on a scale from molecules to organisms) to make sense of phenomena and solve problems.

SCI.LS1.C: Organization for Matter and Energy Flow in Organisms

SCI.LS1.C.5: Food provides animals with the materials and energy they need for body repair, growth, warmth, and motion. Plants acquire material for growth chiefly from air, water, and process matter, and obtain energy from sunlight, which is used to maintain conditions necessary for survival.

Growing Plants

SCI.LS2: Students use science and engineering practices, crosscutting concepts, and an understanding of the interactions, energy, and dynamics within ecosystems to make sense of phenomena and solve problems.

SCI.LS2.A: Interdependent Relationships in Ecosystems

SCI.LS2.A.5: The food of almost any animal can be traced back to plants. Organisms are related in food webs in which some animals eat plants for food and other animals eat the animals that eat plants, while decomposers restore some materials back to the soil.

Forest Ecosystem

5-LS2-1: Develop a model to describe the movement of matter among plants, animals, decomposers, and the environment.

Forest Ecosystem

SCI.PS: Physical Science

SCI.PS1: Students use science and engineering practices, crosscutting concepts, and an understanding of matter and its interactions to make sense of phenomena and solve problems.

SCI.PS1.A: Structures and Properties of Matter

SCI.PS1.A.5: Matter exists as particles that are too small to see. Matter is always conserved even if it seems to disappear. Measurements of a variety of observable properties can be used to identify particular materials.

Chemical Changes

SCI.PS1.B: Chemical Reactions

SCI.PS1.B.5.i: Chemical reactions that occur when substances are mixed can be identified by the emergence of substances with different properties.

Chemical Changes

SCI.PS1.B.5.ii: In chemical reactions the total mass remains the same.

Chemical Changes

5-PS1-2: 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

5-PS1-4: Conduct an investigation to determine whether the mixing of two or more substances results in new substances.

Chemical Changes

SCI.PS3: Students use science and engineering practices, crosscutting concepts, and an understanding of energy to make sense of phenomena and solve problems.

SCI.PS3.D: Energy in Chemical Processes and Everyday Life

SCI.PS3.D.5.i: Plants capture energy from sunlight which can be used as fuel or food.

Energy Conversions

SCI.PS3.D.5.ii: Stored energy in food or fuel can be converted to useable energy.

Energy Conversions

SCI.ESS: Earth and Space Science

SCI.ESS1: Students use science and engineering practices, crosscutting concepts, and an understanding of Earth’s place in the universe to make sense of phenomena and solve problems.

SCI.ESS1.B: Earth and the Solar System

SCI.ESS1.B.5: The Earth’s orbit and rotation, and the orbit of the moon around the Earth cause observable patterns.

Phases of the Moon

SCI.ESS2: Students use science and engineering practices, crosscutting concepts, and an understanding of Earth’s systems to make sense of phenomena and solve problems.

5-ESS2-1: Develop a model using an example to describe ways the geosphere, biosphere, hydrosphere, and atmosphere interact.

Carbon Cycle

SCI.ESS3: Students use science and engineering practices, crosscutting concepts, and an understanding of the Earth and human activity to make sense of phenomena and solve problems.

SCI.ESS3.C: Human Impacts on Earth Systems

SCI.ESS3.C.5: Societal activities have had major effects on the land, ocean, atmosphere, and even outer space. Societal activities can also help protect Earth’s resources and environments.
