TN.5.ESS.Earth and Space Sciences (ESS)
Earth and Space Sciences (ESS)
5.ESS1. Earth’s Place in the Universe 5.ESS1.1. Explain that differences in the apparent brightness of the sun compared to other stars is due to their relative distances from the Earth.
5.ESS1.2. Research and explain the position of the Earth and the solar system within the Milky Way galaxy, and compare the size and shape of the Milky Way to other galaxies in the universe.
5.ESS1.3. Use data to categorize different bodies in our solar system including moons, asteroids, comets, and meteoroids according to their physical properties and motion.
5.ESS1.4. Explain the cause and effect relationship between the positions of the sun, earth, and moon and resulting eclipses, position of constellations, and appearance of the moon.
5.ESS1.5. Relate the tilt of the Earth’s axis, as it revolves around the sun, to the varying intensities of sunlight at different latitudes. Evaluate how this causes changes in day-lengths and seasons.
5.ESS1.7. Use evidence from the presence and location of fossils to determine the order in which rock strata were formed.
TN.5.ETS.Engineering, Technology, and Applications of Science (ETS)
Engineering, Technology, and Applications of Science (ETS)
5.ETS2. Links Among Engineering, Technology, Science, and Society 5.ETS2.1. Use appropriate measuring tools, simple hand tools, and fasteners to construct a prototype of a new or improved technology.
5.ETS2.2. Describe how human beings have made tools and machines (X-ray cameras, microscopes, satellites, computers) to observe and do things that they could not otherwise sense or do at all, or as quickly or efficiently. Quiz, Flash Cards, Worksheet, Game Cells Quiz, Flash Cards, Worksheet, Game Sound
5.ETS2.3. Identify how scientific discoveries lead to new and improved technologies.
TN.5.LS.Life Sciences (LS)
5.LS1. From Molecules to Organisms: Structures and Processes 5.LS1.1. Compare and contrast animal responses that are instinctual versus those that that are gathered through the senses, processed, and stored as memories to guide their actions.
5.LS3. Heredity: Inheritance and Variation of Traits 5.LS3.1. Distinguish between inherited characteristics and those characteristics that result from a direct interaction with the environment. Apply this concept by giving examples of characteristics of living organisms that are influenced by both inheritance and th Quiz, Flash Cards, Worksheet, Game Meiosis Quiz, Flash Cards, Worksheet, Game Mitosis
5.LS3.2. Provide evidence and analyze data that plants and animals have traits inherited from parents and that variations of these traits exist in a group of similar organisms. Quiz, Flash Cards, Worksheet, Game Meiosis
5.LS4. Biological Change: Unity and Diversity 5.LS4.1. Analyze and interpret data from fossils to describe types of organisms and their environments that existed long ago. Compare similarities and differences of those to living organisms and their environments. Recognize that most kinds of animals (and plants
5.LS4.2. Use evidence to construct an explanation for how variations in characteristics among individuals within the same species may provide advantages to these individuals in their survival and reproduction. Quiz, Flash Cards, Worksheet, Game Meiosis
TN.5.PS.Physical Sciences (PS)
5.PS1. Matter and Its Interactions 5.PS1.1. Analyze and interpret data from observations and measurements of the physical properties of matter to explain phase changes between a solid, liquid, or gas.
5.PS1.3. Design a process to measure how different variables (temperature, particle size, stirring) affect the rate of dissolving solids into liquids.
5.PS1.4. Evaluate the results of an experiment to determine whether the mixing of two or more substances result in a change of properties. Quiz, Flash Cards, Worksheet, Game & Study Guide Matter
5.PS2. Motion and Stability: Forces and Interactions 5.PS2.1. Test the effects of balanced and unbalanced forces on the speed and direction of motion of objects.
5.PS2.2. Make observations and measurements of an object’s motion to provide evidence that a pattern can be used to predict future motion.
5.PS2.5. Explain how forces can create patterns within a system (moving in one direction, shifting back and forth, or moving in cycles), and describe conditions that affect how fast or slowly these patterns occur.
