5th Grade (SCI) Science Standards [PS1] Matter and Its Interaction
SCI-05.PS1.01 Develop a model to describe that matter is made of particles too small to
Clarification Statement: Examples of evidence supporting a model could include adding air to expand a basketball, compressing air
in a syringe, dissolving sugar in water, and evaporating salt water. Drawings of simple molecules such as
water, sugar, carbon dioxide would be appropriate Disciplinary Core Ideas Matter of any type can be subdivided into
particles that are too small to see, but 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
Student Learning Targets:
I can describe that matter is made of particles too small to be seen.
