5 th Grade Science MSA Unpack the Science MSA What do I need to know? How do I succeed?
Do Now-Can you identify the science concept in the pictures?
Answers Erosion Natural Resources Observable features Animal survival
Testing Dates & Information April 13 Only 5 th & 8 th grade students take the Science MSA. Online assessment Students will take the Science MSA for the next 3 years until we fully adopt the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).
What do I need to know? Science MSA is…. A reading assessment- passages, diagrams, tables, science vocabulary A math assessment-line and bar graph,, comparing data (decimals), calculations An art assessment-analyze/interpret pictures A science content assessment-science process skills, science investigations, science topics http://mdk12.org/instruction/curriculum/science /standard1/grade5.html http://mdk12.org/instruction/curriculum/science /standard1/grade5.html
Reading- Determine meaning from text and cite evidence http://mdk12.org/instruction/pritems/science /grade5/6B2b.html http://mdk12.org/instruction/pritems/science /grade5/6B2b.html (Invasion of vines passage- 4 th from the bottom)
Math- Make sense of the problem A container is filled with 250 milliliters of water. The total mass of the container and the water is 300 grams. What is the total mass of the container and the water after being in a freezer for 2 hours? A.50 grams B. 250 grams C. 300 grams D. 550 grams What are some of the science concepts in this word problem? Matter -physical changes -states of matter -conservation of mass What is the question asking me? What are the key words?
Math- Make sense of the problem and use tools appropriately. A car moves 100 km in 4 seconds going north. Calculate the speed and velocity. What is the science concept? Motion Speed Friction Gravity What is the question asking me to do? What are the key words?
