EARTH AND SPACE SCIENCE (ESS)
Cycles and Patterns in the Solar System This topic focuses on the characteristics, cycles and patterns in the solar system and within the universe
5.ESS.1 The solar system includes the sun and all celestial bodies that orbit the sun. Each planet in the solar system has unique characteristics. 5.ESS.2 The sun is one of many stars that exist in the universe. 5.ESS.3 Most of the cycles and patterns of motion between the Earth and sun are predictable.
PHYSICAL SCIENCE (PS)
Light, Sound and Motion This topic focuses on the forces that affect motion. This includes the relationship between the change in speed of an object, the amount of force applied and the mass of the object. Light and sound are explored as forms of energy that move in predictable ways, depending on the matter through which they move
5.PS.1 The amount of change in movement of an object is based on the mass of the object and the amount of force exerted. 5.PS.2 Light and sound are forms of energy that behave in predictable ways.
LIFE SCIENCE (LS) Interactions within Ecosystems This topic focuses on foundational knowledge of the structures and functions of ecosystems.
5.LS.1 Organisms perform a variety of roles in an ecosystem. 5.LS.2 All of the processes that take place within organisms require energy
