Here are the Core Ideas we are working on:

 

New Jersey Student Learning Standards: 

Performance Expectations: 

5-PS1-1. Develop a model to describe that matter is made of particles too small to be seen.

5-PS1-2.  Measure and graph quantities to provide evidence that regardless of the type of change that occurs when heating, cooling, or mixing substances, the total weight of matter is conserved.  

5-PS1-3.  Make observations and measurement to identify materials based on their properties.

5-PS1-4.  Conduct an investigation to determine whether the mixing of two or more substances results in new substances.

Disciplinary Core Ideas :  

PS1.A: Structure and Properties of Matter

  • Matter of any type can be subdivided into particles that are too small to see, but even then the matter still exists and can be detected by other means.  A model showing that gases are made from matter particles that are too small to see and are moving freely around in space can explain many observations, including the inflation and shape of a balloon and the effects of air on larger particles or objects.  

  • The amount (weight of matter is conserved when it changes form, even in transitions in which it seems to vanish.

  • The amount (weight of matter is conserved when it changes form, even in transitions in which it seems to vanish.

  • Measurements of a variety of properties  can be used to identify materials. (Boundary: At this grade-level, mass and weight are not distinguished, and no attempt is made to define the unseen particles or explain the atomic-scale mechanism of evaporation and condensation.)

PS1.B: Chemical reactions

  • No matter what reaction or change in properties occurs, the total weight of the substances does not change. (Boundary: Mass and weight are not distinguished at this grade-level).

  • When two or more different substances are mixed, a new substance with different properties may be formed.

UNIT 4 The Universe

Students are expected to develop an understanding of patterns of daily changes in length and direction of shadows, day and night, and the seasonal appearance of some stars in the night sky. Students will observe the sky bimonthly and log those observations into a SKY JOURNAL.  These observations will continue throught the year.

ESS1.A: The Universe and its Stars „X The sun is a star that appears larger and brighter than other stars because it is closer. Stars range greatly in their distance from Earth.

ESS1.B: Earth and the Solar System „X The orbits of Earth around the sun and of the moon around Earth, together with the rotation of Earth about an axis between its North and South poles, cause observable patterns. These include day and night; daily changes in the length and direction of shadows; and different positions of the sun, moon, and stars at different times of the day, month, and year.

We memorize poems several times during the year.

POEM 1

Winter Moon

How thin and sharp is the moon tonight!
How thin and sharp and ghostly white
Is the slim curved crook of the moon tonight!

 

POEM 2

"DREAMS" 

by Langston Hughes

 
  Hold fast to dreamsFor if dreams dieLife is a broken-winged bird that cannot fly.Hold fast to dreamsFor when dreams goLife is a barren fieldFrozen with snow.  

 

POEM 3

Nothing Gold Can Stay 

by Robert Frost

Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower; 
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf,
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day
Nothing gold can stay.
