5-ESS2-2   Earth's Systems

Students who demonstrate understanding can:

5-ESS2-2. Describe and graph the amounts of salt water and fresh water in various reservoirs to provide evidence about the distribution of water on Earth. [Assessment Boundary: Assessment is limited to oceans, lakes, rivers, glaciers, ground water, and polar ice caps, and does not include the atmosphere.]
The performance expectation above was developed using the following elements from the NRC document A Framework for K- 12 Science Education:

Science and Engineering Practices

Using Mathematics and Computational Thinking

Mathematical and computational thinking in 3–5 builds on K–2 experiences and progresses to extending quantitative measurements to a variety of physical properties and using computation and mathematics to analyze data and compare alternative design solutions.

Crosscutting Concepts

Scale, Proportion, and Quantity

Connections to other DCIs in fifth grade: N/A

Common Core State Standards Connections:
