Description

This is a bundle of PBL science units for 5th grade. These project-based learning (science-focused) research-based units are the perfect way to teach reading, writing, research skills, and science in one engaging, real-world unit. Your students will use key standards, such as research, reading comprehension, and engineering design in a real-life scenario. The best part about PBL is that student choice and differentiation are built in!

5th Grade Driving Questions:

  • How can I construct a model that teaches my classmates about the movement of matter among plants, animals, decomposers, and the environment?
  • How can I communicate information on patterns in Earth’s systems with people in the community?
  • How can I design an experiment to prove to others that the total weight of matter is conserved even when it changes forms?
  • How can we create an interactive exhibit showcasing the interaction of Earth’s Systems for a science exhibit?

 

Banish those boring worksheets and get your students excited about real-life learning! These projects cover the following skills:

  • Research
  • Reading Comprehension
  • Collaboration
  • Communication
  • Writing
  • Design & Creativity
  • Critical Thinking
  • Engineering Design Process
  • Data Displays

 

Included in this Resource:

  • Lesson Outline
  • Sample Pacing
  • Teacher Guide with Lesson Plans
  • Scaffolded Research Notes
  • Engineering Design Process Overview
  • Rubric & Sample Answers

 

Plus, a BONUS digital version is included as well!

 

NGSS Standards Covered:

  • NGSS.5-LS2-1: Develop a model to describe the movement of matter among plants, animals, decomposers, and the environment.
  • 5-ESS1-2: Represent data in graphical displays (bar graphs, pictographs and/or pie charts) to reveal patterns of daily changes in length and direction of shadows, day and night, and the seasonal appearance of some stars in the night sky.
  • 5-PS1-2: Measure and graph quantities to provide evidence that regardless of the type of change that occurs when heating, cooling, or mixing substances, the total weight of matter is conserved.
  • 5-ESS2-1: Develop a model using an example to describe ways the geosphere, biosphere, hydrosphere, and/or atmosphere interact.
