5th Grade Science
Students will begin the study of Life Science Organisms and Environments starting with the Ecosystem Interactions Unit. Students will observe the way organisms live and survive in their ecosystem by interaction with the living and non-living elements. Student will be able to describe how the flow of energy derived from the Sun, used by producers to create their own food, is transferred through a food chain and food web to consumers and decomposers. Students will predict the effects of changes in ecosystems caused by living organisms, including humans, such as the overpopulation of grazers or the building of highways. Students will identify the significance of the carbon dioxide-oxygen cycle to the survival of plants and animals.
