This Category 4 Test Prep Escape Challenge follows the following standards.
The student will demonstrate an understanding of the structures and functions of living organisms and their interdependence on each other and on their environment.
(5.9) Organisms and environments. The student knows that there are relationships, systems, and cycles within environments. The student is expected to
(A) observe the way organisms live and survive in their ecosystem by interacting with the living and non-living elements; Readiness Standard
(B) describe how the flow of energy derived from the Sun, used by producers to create their own food, is transferred through a food chain and food web to consumers and decomposers; Readiness Standard
(C) predict the effects of changes in ecosystems caused by living organisms, including humans, such as the overpopulation of grazers or the building of highways; and Supporting Standard
(D) identify the significance of the carbon dioxide-oxygen cycle to the survival of plants and animals. Supporting Standard
(5.10) Organisms and environments. The student knows that organisms undergo similar life processes and have structures that help them survive within their environments. The student is expected to
(A) compare the structures and functions of different species that help them live and survive such as hooves on prairie animals or webbed feet in aquatic animals; Readiness Standard
(B) differentiate between inherited traits of plants and animals such as spines on a cactus or shape of a beak and learned behaviors such as an animal learning tricks or a child riding a bicycle; and Readiness Standard
(C) describe the differences between complete and incomplete metamorphosis of insects. Supporting Standard
Grade 3 (3.9) Organisms and environments. The student knows that organisms have characteristics that help them survive and can describe patterns, cycles, systems, and relationships within the environments. The student is expected to
(A) observe and describe the physical characteristics of environments and how they support populations and communities within an ecosystem. Supporting Standard (3.10) Organisms and environments. The student knows that organisms undergo similar life processes and have structures that help them survive within their environments. The student is expected to
(C) investigate and compare how animals and plants undergo a series of orderly changes in their diverse life cycles such as tomato, plants, frogs, and lady bugs.
This is an engaging way to prep your class for the 5th Grade Science STAAR test!
Clicking through the power point show, in the format of a game, is easy and entertaining. This is a great tool for incorporating technology into your classroom.
