V. Summarize Knowledge - Enduring Understandings
Vl. Next Generation of Science Standards (NGSS) - Grade 5
Disciplinary Core Ideas
LS1.C: Organization for Matter and Energy Flow in Organisms
• Plants acquire their material for growth chiefly from air and water. (5-LS1-1)
Science and Engineering Practices
Engaging in Argument from Evidence
Engaging in argument from evidence in 3–5 builds on K–2 experiences and progresses to critiquing the scientific explanations or solutions proposed by peers by citing relevant evidence about the natural and designed world(s).
• Support an argument with evidence, data, or a model. (5-LS1-1)
Energy and Matter
• Matter is transported into, out of, and within systems. (5-LS1-1)
Students who demonstrate understanding can:
5-LS1-1. Support an argument that plants get the materials they need for growth chiefly from air and water. [Clarification Statement: Emphasis is on the idea that plant matter comes mostly from air and water, not from the soil.]
Common Core State Standards Connections
RI.5.1 Quote accurately from a text when explaining what the text says explicitly and when drawing inferences from the text. (5-LS1-1)
RI.5.9 Integrate information from several texts on the same topic in order to write or speak about the subject knowledgeably. (5-LS1-1)
W.5.1 Write opinion pieces on topics or texts, supporting a point of view with reasons and information. (5-LS1-1)
MP.2 Reason abstractly and quantitatively. (5-LS1-1)
MP.4 Model with mathematics. (5-LS1-1)
MP.5 Use appropriate tools strategically. (5-LS1-1)
5.MD.A.1 Convert among different-sized standard measurement units within a given measurement system (e.g., convert 5 cm to 0.05 m), and use these conversions in solving multi-step, real world problems. (5-LS1-1)
When you research information you must cite the reference. Citing for websites is different from citing from books, magazines and periodicals. The style of citing shown here is from the MLA Style Citations (Modern Language Association).
When citing a WEBSITE the general format is as follows.
Author Last Name, First Name(s). "Title: Subtitle of Part of Web Page, if appropriate." Title: Subtitle: Section of Page if appropriate. Sponsoring/Publishing Agency, If Given. Additional significant descriptive information. Date of Electronic Publication or other Date, such as Last Updated. Day Month Year of access < URL >.
