Fifth Grade Life Science: Grow With the Flow
How do organisms fuel themselves to survive?
Inspire your 5th grade scientists to think deeply about how matter and energy move within food webs as they explore unique ecosystems and organisms on this virtual field trip to the California Science Center. Students will use models and experiment with sprouts to develop an understanding that plants get the materials they need for growth chiefly from air and water and that the energy in animals’ food was once energy from the sun.

Downloadable Activity Guide
In this activity, students will germinate a seed in order to generate and record observable data. Students will use this data as evidence to engage in argument about the sources of energy and matter that a plant needs to grow and survive.
