5-2: The student will demonstrate an understanding of relationships among biotic and abiotic factors within terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. (Life Science)

5-2.2: Summarize the composition of an ecosystem, considering both biotic factors (including populations to the level of microorganisms and communities) and abiotic factors.

 Pond Ecosystem

5-2.4: Identify the roles of organisms as they interact and depend on one another through food chains and food webs in an ecosystem, considering producers and consumers (herbivores, carnivores, and omnivores), decomposers (microorganisms, termites, worms, and fungi), predators and prey, and parasites and hosts.

 Forest Ecosystem
 Prairie Ecosystem

5-2.5: Explain how limiting factors (including food, water, space, and shelter) affect populations in ecosystems.

 Rabbit Population by Season

5-3: The student will demonstrate an understanding of features, processes, and changes in Earth's land and oceans. (Earth Science)

5-3.5: Compare the movement of water by waves, currents, and tides.

5-4: The student will demonstrate an understanding of properties of matter. (Physical Science)

5-4.2: Compare the physical properties of the states of matter (including volume, shape, and the movement and spacing of particles).

 Phases of Water

5-5: The student will demonstrate an understanding of the nature of force and motion. (Physical Science)

5-5.1: Illustrate the affects of force (including magnetism, gravity, and friction) on motion.

5-5.3: Explain how unbalanced forces affect the rate and direction of motion in objects.

 Force and Fan Carts

5-5.4: Explain ways to change the effect that friction has on the motion of objects (including changing the texture of the surfaces, changing the amount of surface area involved, and adding lubrication).

 Free Fall Tower

5-5.5: Use a graph to illustrate the motion of an object.

 Distance-Time Graphs
 Free Fall Tower
