Grade 5: MySci: From Sun to Food
Rating: Example of High Quality NGSS Design
Awarded the NGSS Design Badge
Science Discipline: Physical Science, Life Science, Earth and Space Science, Engineering
In this unit, students consider the question: We eat pizza made of many ingredients. How has this pizza been made? To try to explain this phenomenon, students will develop and refine a farm model throughout each lesson. They then focus on designing a farm that minimally harms the environment. Students will see how matter is cycled through ecosystems and how energy flows from the sun to the consumers in a food chain. As students engage in the activities in this unit, the Crosscutting Concepts of Energy and Matter and Systems and System Models are emphasized.
