    Save your time and engage your students with this NGSS-aligned 5th grade unit! It covers three NGSS 5th grade Earth Systems standards using phenomena and hands on experiences!

    NOTE: There are SO many topics that you can cover about Earth's systems. I chose to focus in detail on water-related phenomena (Lessons: the Water Cycle, Atmosphere and Oceans Affect Climate, Humans Affecting the Chesapeake Bay). Although I used the Earth's Systems Interactions lesson to discuss many other phenomena at a faster pace, if you have very specific phenomena that must be included in depth, you may need to supplement this bundle. Please add a question to the resource or email me at juli@julicannonscience.com out if you have questions!


    Part 1: Why do water shortages occur if most of the Earth is covered in water? (5-ESS2-2)

    • Lesson 1: Distribution of Water on Earth

    Part 2: How do Earth's systems interact with each other? (5-ESS2-1)

    • Lesson 2: Introduction to Earth's Spheres

    • Lesson 3: Water Cycle Interactions

    • Lesson 4: Atmosphere and Oceans Affect Climate

    to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
    Develop a model using an example to describe ways the geosphere, biosphere, hydrosphere, and/or atmosphere interact. Examples could include the influence of the ocean on ecosystems, landform shape, and climate; the influence of the atmosphere on landforms and ecosystems through weather and climate; and the influence of mountain ranges on winds and clouds in the atmosphere. The geosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere, and biosphere are each a system. Assessment is limited to the interactions of two systems at a time.
    Obtain and combine information about ways individual communities use science ideas to protect the Earth’s resources and environment.
    Describe and graph the amounts of salt water and fresh water in various reservoirs to provide evidence about the distribution of water on Earth. Assessment is limited to oceans, lakes, rivers, glaciers, ground water, and polar ice caps, and does not include the atmosphere.
