Big Idea

Weather Predicting
5.E.1 – Understand weather patterns and phenomena, making
connections to the weather in a particular place and time.
-Record
-FotoToon
-Journal
The students are making a weather
forecasting.
Inherited Traits
5.L.3.2 - Students know some likenesses between parents and
children are inherited. Students know that in order for offspring
to resemble their parents there must be a reliable way to transfer
genetic information from parent to offspring.
-Labyrinth
-Write
-Paint
-Record
Comparing the common traits and then creating
what an offspring would look like.
Heat Transfer
5.3.P.1 - Explain the effects of the transfer of heat (either by
direct contact or at a distance) that occurs between objects at
different temperatures. (conduction, convection or radiation)
-Measure
-Stopwatch
-Temperature Sensors
-Write
The students are recording how heat will move
to different objects.
Body Systems
5.L.1.2 – Compare the major systems of the human body
(digestive, respiratory, circulatory, muscular, skeletal, and
cardiovascular) in terms of their functions necessary for life.

-Record
-Write
-Journal
Students are making a sample cover a medical
journal.
Comparing Biomes
5.L.2.1 - Compare the characteristics of several common
ecosystems, including estuaries and salt marshes, oceans,
lakes and ponds, forests, and grasslands.
-Browse
-Write
Comparing different biomes in a chart.
Mass and Motion
5.P.1.1 - Explain how factors such as gravity, friction, and
change in mass affect the motion of objects.
-Physics
-Journal
Comparing the fall of different objects due to gravity.
Weather Phenomena
5.E.1 - Understand weather patterns and phenomena, making connections to the weather in a particular place and time.
FotoToon Activity, Pictures of four distinct seasons, Internet
Creating an informational FotoToon about Weather.
Producers, Consumers, and Decomposers
5.L.2.2 - Classify the organisms within an ecosystem according to the function they serve: producers, consumers, or decomposers (biotic factors).
-Browse/Wikipedia
-Labyrinth
Mapping an Ecosystem.
Cleaning Pennies and Mass
5.P.2.2 - Compare the weight of an object to the sum of the weight of its parts before and after an interaction.
-Pennies, Jar, Vinegar, Salt
-Record
-Write
Comparing of sum of masses within a chemical reaction.
Chemical Change of Salt
5.P.2.3 - Summarize properties of original materials, and the new material(s) formed, to demonstrate that a change has occurred
-Browse
-Labyrinth
-Write
Creating a map of how substance do not keep their original properties.
