1 A Correlation of Interactive Science Grade To the New Jersey Science Standards Grade 5

2 Introduction This document demonstrates the close alignment between Interactive Science, 2012, and the for Grades K-5. Correlation page references are Teacher s Edition and Student Edition. Lessons in the Teacher s Edition contain facsimile Student Edition pages. Pearson Education is pleased to introduce Interactive Science, a Kindergarten through Grade 5 program that makes all students really want to learn more about science and the world. It helps students develop scientific literacy so they better understand the world we live in. Organized into three distinct pathways reading, inquiry, and digital, Interactive Science makes learning and teaching science personal, relevant, and engaging for both students and teachers. Reading Path Target Reading Skills, continual vocabulary support, and graphic organizers help students develop critical reading skills and strategies to uncover meaning when they read. Core Content in the Write-in Student Editions as well as below-, on-, and advanced-leveled Readers with built-in ELL support give students tools to become successful readers. Inquiry Path ABCs of Inquiry Activity Before Concept activities in the Write-in Student Edition engage students and set a purpose for reading. Scaffolded inquiry activities consist of directed, guided, and open inquiry options to allow students to move from teacher-directed to student-centered hand-on experiences. Digital Path Interactive Science goes digital at myscienceonline.com. Untamed Science and Got It? 60- Second Videos, I Will Know activities, and Virtual labs resources engage students in today s digital world. My scienceonline.com can be used for teacher-led instruction from a single computer, with an interactive whiteboard, or by students working at their own pace at school or at home. 1

4 5.1 Science Practices: Science is both a body of knowledge and an evidence-based, model-building enterprise that continually extends, refines, and revises knowledge. The four Science Practices strands encompass the knowledge and reasoning skills that students must acquire to be proficient in science. A. Understand Scientific Explanations: Students understand core concepts and principles of science and use measurement and observation tools to assist in categorizing, representing, and interpreting the natural and designed world. By the end of grade 8 Content: Core scientific concepts and principles represent the conceptual basis for modelbuilding and facilitate the generation of new and productive questions A.1: Demonstrate understanding and use interrelationships among central scientific concepts to revise explanations and to consider alternative explanations.
