These black and white masters of the articles are perfect to use as unit mini-lessons, study guides, or even as notes for their binders or interactive notebooks.

    Part 4: Realistic Posters with real-life photographs to use on the document camera or great for bulletin boards to introduce this topic. Afterwards, you can either laminate these for another year or bind them together as a book for your classroom library.

    Part 5: Show What you Know! Student questions, writing prompts, activities, projects, and reflection to evaluate learning. Reflections are perfect for student portfolios and Parent-Teacher Conferences.

    to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
    Develop a model to describe the movement of matter among plants, animals, decomposers, and the environment. Emphasis is on the idea that matter that is not food (air, water, decomposed materials in soil) is changed by plants into matter that is food. Examples of systems could include organisms, ecosystems, and the Earth. Assessment does not include molecular explanations.
    Construct an argument with evidence that in a particular habitat some organisms can survive well, some survive less well, and some cannot survive at all. Examples of evidence could include needs and characteristics of the organisms and habitats involved. The organisms and their habitat make up a system in which the parts depend on each other.
    Make observations of plants and animals to compare the diversity of life in different habitats. Emphasis is on the diversity of living things in each of a variety of different habitats. Assessment does not include specific animal and plant names in specific habitats.
    Use evidence to support the explanation that traits can be influenced by the environment. Examples of the environment affecting a trait could include normally tall plants grown with insufficient water are stunted; and, a pet dog that is given too much food and little exercise may become overweight.
    Plan and conduct an investigation to determine if plants need sunlight and water to grow. Assessment is limited to testing one variable at a time.
