****Excellent 5th Grade Science STAAR Study Guide****
2 pages of Student Friendly notes on Reporting Category 2: Force, Motion, and Energy.
Use these notes with your students to help them recall key concepts and investigations done in your Matter and Energy Unit. These notes make excellent study guides!
These are the standards tested and reported under “Category 2: Force, Motion, and Energy” on the Texas 5th Grade Science STAAR Test.
5.6 A explore the uses of energy, including mechanical, light, thermal, electrical, and sound energy
5.6 B demonstrate that the flow of electricity in circuits requires a complete path through which an electric current can pass and can produce light, heat, and sound
5.6 C demonstrate that light travels in a straight line until it strikes an object or travels through one medium to another and demonstrate that light can be reflected such as the use of mirrors or other shiny surfaces and refracted such as the appearance of an object when observed through water
5.6 D design an experiment that tests the effect of force on an object
3.6 B demonstrate and observe how position and motion can be changed by pushing and pulling objects to show work being done such as swings, balls, pulleys, and wagons
