5-PS3-1 Energy

Students who demonstrate understanding can: 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.
Clarification Statement: Examples of models could include diagrams, and flow charts.
Assessment Boundary: Assessment does not include cellular mechanisms of digestive absorption.

Crosscutting Concepts

Science & Engineering Practices 

Disciplinary Core Ideas 

Energy and Matter:

  • Energy can be transferred in various ways and between objects.

Developing and Using Models:

  • Modeling in 3-5 builds on K-2 experiences and progresses to building and revising simple models and using models to represent events and design solutions.
  • Use models to describe phenomena. 

Energy in Chemical Processes and Everyday Life:

  • The energy released [from] food was once energy from the sun that was captured by plants in the chemical process that forms plant matter (from air and water) 

Organization of Matter and Energy Flow in Organisms:

  • Food provides animals with the materials they need for body repair and growth and the energy they need to maintain body warmth and for motion.
