Cycling of Matter in an Ecosystem Activities for 5th Grade Science
The resources below will provide students a comprehensive understanding of the cycling of matter in an ecosystem. All of the following lessons are also included in the Kesler Science Membership.
The Cycling of Matter in an Ecosystem 5E Lesson includes materials for every "E" phase, including the Cycling of Matter in an Ecosystem Station Lab for Exploration and an interactive PowerPoint with digital INB templates for Explanation.
The lesson also includes introduction materials for Engagement, student-choice project ideas for Elaboration, and assessments for Evaluation.
After completing the Cycling of Matter in an Ecosystem 5E Lesson, students will be able to describe the movement of matter among plants, animals, decomposers, and the environment. [Clarification Statement: 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 Boundary: Assessment does not include molecular explanations.]
