Liberty Drive Elementary

What are we learning about in Science this Nine Weeks?

This nine weeks, students will be learning about the differences between conductors and insulators. Students will be learning about how the weight of an object doesn't change even when that object is broken part. Students will also be learning about differences between chemical and physical changes. 
 
Students will also be learning about the differences between single celled and multicellular organisms. Students will be learning about different human body systems and in what ways these systems work together. 
  
The Science Standards students will be working on this Nine Weeks are:
 
5.P.3.2 Explain how heating and cooling affect some materials and how this relates to their purpose and practical applications.
 
5.P.2.2 Compare the weight of an object to the sum of the weight of its parts before and after an interaction.
 
5.P.2.3 Summarize properties of original materials, and the new material(s) formed, to demonstrate that a change has occurred.
 
5.L.1.1 Explain why some organisms are capable of surviving as a single cell while others require many cells that are specialized to survive.
 
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.
