The Grade 5 Life Science Unit focuses on transport systems in animals (respiratory, circulatory, digestive and excretory) and plants (roots, stems-xylem and phloem, leaves) and addresses the California Science Standards for 5th grade Life Science. By the end of the unit students will know the main idea that structure and function are related in living organisms. Specifically students will know that: living things are organized structurally from microscopic cells to tissues, organs, and organ systems; within each of these levels, living things demonstrate a structure function relationship in which the way something is designed and built contributes to its ability to perform specific functions; four systems in animals function to transport materials; those systems are the respiratory, circulatory, digestive and excretory systems; each of these systems is made of smaller parts called organs, each with their own function; in addition to a specific function (e.g., digest food), these systems are inter-related (e.g., circulatory and respiratory) to provide nutrients to the body and remove wastes; plant structures also provide transport of nutrients and the removal of waste; roots, stems (xylem and phloem), and leaves are actively involved in the transport; photosynthesis enables plants to make food from carbon dioxide and water in the presence of chlorophyll and sunlight; photosynthesis produces oxygen, which is used by animals and plants in the process of cellular respiration; cellular respiration produces carbon dioxide used by plants creating the photosynthesis/respiration cycle. The Grade 5 Life Science Unit is presented to students through a series of investigations, experiments, active learning experiences, questions, and assessments. Assessments include: pre-, post- and 6 formative assessments.
