Description

What does an ecosystem include, what is an aquatic biome and a terrestrial biome, and how do human activities affect ecosystems? While the standards closely align with 5th Grade NGSS standards, if you are teaching about ecosystems and organisms in general, this may be perfect for you!

Included in this bundle:

  • 5 DIGITAL (NOT PRINTABLE) guided notebook lessons with reading passages included (for use in Google Slides)
  • This entire set includes full guided student notes for teaching:
    • What an ecosystem is.
    • The two types of ecosystems and the organisms that live within each (producers, consumers, and decomposers).
    • The role plants play in an ecosystem.
    • The five essential materials a plant needs for growth.
    • A closer look within those essential parts(roots/stems/leaves and nutrients and minerals).
    • Food chains and food webs.
    • The organisms that comprise each trophic level.
    • The conditions that make an ecosystem healthy, as well as those that can affect an ecosystem driving it to become unhealthy.
    • How humans impact ecosystems, both positively and negatively.
  • Six investigations for both a hands-on experience and research experience.
  • 7 KLEW charts to be digitally displayed (Whiteboard, Google Slides, or Jamboard).
  • Study guides and assessments included, (partially-graded, all short answer, and constructed response paragraphs need to be manually graded unless you eliminate them).
  • Outlined Scope and Sequence for all 5 lessons.
  • START HERE guide with additional tips to support using this product.

Look for the START HERE guide first when opening this zipped file. There is a separate file with the digital links (Google Slides). Additionally, you can assign your students a digital partially self-grading assessment (Google Forms), as well as the same with a digital partially self-grading study guide. In the guide, you will see tips and tricks for what you can do with each file. You will need to make a copy and save it in Google Drive and you can assign using Google Classroom (perfect for students who may be absent).

**Must have access to a Google Drive account in order to make a copy of each document and save it.

➡ Jamboard™ is an interactive digital whiteboard developed in the G-Suite of tools. They are easy to use while teaching live via Google Meet or Zoom, that once you share your screen with students, and you can share the Jamboard™ and Google Slide links with your students using either Google Classroom or the Zoom chatbox. Students do not need a google email to open a Jamboard™ link. Directions for how to share are found within the download. *BEFORE PURCHASING, PLEASE CHECK WITH YOUR DISTRICT TO MAKE SURE JAMBOARD IS NOT BLOCKED* If so, it never hurts to ask the Tech department if they could unblock. However, if impossible, having Google Slides will be beneficial.

**PLEASE email me (fifthismyjam@gmail.com) if you have any questions or need support.

Standards

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
NGSS5-LS1-1
Support an argument that plants get the materials they need for growth chiefly from air and water. Emphasis is on the idea that plant matter comes mostly from air and water, not from the soil.
NGSS5-PS1-1
Develop a model to describe that matter is made of particles too small to be seen. Examples of evidence could include adding air to expand a basketball, compressing air in a syringe, dissolving sugar in water, and evaporating salt water. Assessment does not include the atomic-scale mechanism of evaporation and condensation or defining the unseen particles.
NGSS5-PS3-1
Use models to describe that energy in animals’ food (used for body repair, growth, motion, and to maintain body warmth) was once energy from the sun. Examples of models could include diagrams, and flow charts.
NGSS5-ESS3-1
Obtain and combine information about ways individual communities use science ideas to protect the Earth’s resources and environment.
NGSS5-LS2-1
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.
