Pacing Guide Year-At-A-Glance 2013-2014 Big Idea 14: Organization and Development of Living Organisms
Fair Game Benchmarks Department of Mathematics and Science Scaffolding in the classroom: “Scaffolding can be used in a variety of content areas and across age and grade levels.” “When using scaffolding as an instructional technique, the teacher provides tasks that enable the learner to build on prior knowledge and internalize new concepts.” -Heather Coffey Prior Knowledge: Items may require the student to apply scientific knowledge described in NGSSS benchmarks from lower grades; however, the benchmarks from lower grades will not be assessed in isolation. FCAT 2.0 will assess prior content taught in lower grades that serves as a foundation for grade 5 benchmarks along with grades 3 & 4 Fair Game benchmarks.
Topic VIII: Living and Nonliving Things Big Idea 14: Organization and Development of Living Organisms SC.1.L.14.3 Differentiate between living and nonliving things Engage: Read: Diary of a Worm by: Doreen Cronin Explore: Gummy Worms vs. Real Worms Earthworm Observations My Worm Journal Explain: Read An Earthworm’s Life by: John Himmelman (non-fiction selection) Elaborate: How Do Worms help the Earth? Evaluate: Wiggly Worms Quiz Worksheet: Is it living or Nonliving? Additional Activities: Journal Entry: Living or nonliving Wiggly Worms at Work by: Wendt Pfeffer Website: Visit Discovery Kids Worm World for all the dirt on worms. http://yucky.kids.discovery.com/flash/worm/index.html
Topic IX: Making Observations of Living Things and Their Environment Big Idea 14: Organization and Development of Living Organisms SVC.1.L.14.1 Make Observations of living things and their environment using the five senses Engage: Read The Grouchy Ladybug by Eric Carle Explore: Observe ladybugs using hand lens Explain: Read A Ladybug’s Life by John Himmelman (non-fiction selection) Elaborate: Lenses and Ladybugs (Aims Activity) Evaluate: Worksheet: Life Cycle of a Ladybug Additional Activities: Paper Plate Ladybug, Ladybug Cookie Read: Ladybug, Ladybug, What are you Doing? Are You a LadyBug? By Judy Allen and Tudor Humphries
Learning Science in Cultural Context Article Jigsaw Group 1 – Strategy to Adapt Curriculum Materials Group 2 – Staging Activity Group 3 – Establishing Background for Investigation Group 4 - Investigate Group 5 – Present and Discuss Findings Group 6 - Conclusion Department of Mathematics and Science
Topic X: Plant Structures Big Idea 14: Organization and Development of Living Organisms SC.1.L.14.2 Identify the major parts of plants, including stem, roots, leaves and flowers Engage: Give each group a flower and see if they can identify the observable parts Explore: Plants and Their Parts (Aims Activity) Explain: Vocabulary Flip Book of plant parts and their function Elaborate: Stem Study (Aims Activity) Super Tuber (Aims Activity) Evaluate: Draw a plant and label its parts Additional Activities: Song: Plant Parts Inside a Seed Read: The Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle and discuss the relationship between plants and the caterpillar
Topic XI: Plants and Animals Resemble Their Parents Big Idea 14: Organization and Development of Living Organisms SC.1.L.16.1 Make observations that plants and animals closely resemble their parents, but variations exist among individuals Engage: Read: Are You My Mother? (Random House) New York, 1998 Explore: Who’s My Mom? (Aims Activity) Explain: Compare and contrast baby mammals and adult mammals Elaborate: Play “Go Fish” with the animal cards Evaluate: Design your own animal and offspring
Five ’s Instructional Strategy The Five E Model is one way to prioritize student involvement in their own learning (both in terms of physical activity and active construction of understandings) This model is a version of a “learning cycle” This Five E’s learning cycle suggests the design and implementation of lessons to activate prior knowledge, shape the formation of new knowledge, and provide opportunities to use the new knowledge.
