Five content comics and one inquiry activity create a sequential lesson covering the many ways organisms receive energy from the sun. This package aligns with the following Common Core standards:
MODEL CURRICULUM (GRADE 5)- Life Science
TOPIC- Interconnections within Ecosystems
CONTENT STATEMENT- All of the processes that take place within organisms require energy. Energy entering ecosystems as sunlight is transferred and transformed by producers into energy that organisms use through the process of photosynthesis.
GRADE 5 CONCEPTS- Energy flows through and ecosystem in one direction, from photosynthetic organisms to consumers (herbivores, omnivores to carnivores).
