5th Grade Life Science STAAR-Adaptations, Food Webs, Carbon Oxygen Cycle *PDF

Life science vocabulary activity for intermediate grades. Students match vocabulary words and symbolize each word, which is great for ELL students! Easy to prep, just print and go. Also makes a great center or station activity, test-prep, or reteach. Happy teaching! Vocabulary matches the TEKS for 5th grade science STAAR--Ecosystems, changes in environments, carbon dioxide oxygen cycle, food chains and food webs

"The stunning Waitomo Glowworm caves in Waikato, New Zealand, are a major tourist attraction thanks to the abundant glowworms that light up the roof like a starry sky. But in addition to being home to these radiant worms, researchers from the University of Waikato have discovered the caves are important geological structures that contain an entire ecosystem even their own carbon dioxide cycle."


NASA's Climate Kids - awesome web page to work with kids to understand what climate is. Lot of activities, images, explanations suited for elementary/middle school


Whatever doesn't serve us, we should learn how to let it go. The earth gives us small clues of life, and sometimes the answers for all of our questions lies right in front of our eyes. Just as the trees bears us fruit and oxygen to eat and breath so we can be alive. We give the tree carbon dioxide and from time to time water so the tree can sustain life. It's a cycle of exchange life so we can survive. When the leaves and everything dies off the tree, it's reborn with more fruit and leaves…

Explore light reactions, the Calvin cycle, and the equation for photosynthesis that allows plants to use carbon dioxide and energy from the sun to form glucose.

Scientists solve puzzle of converting gaseous carbon dioxide to fuel: Saving the planet from climate change with a grain of sand

Every year, humans advance climate change and global warming by injecting about 30 billion tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. Scientists believe they've found a way to convert all these emissions into energy-rich fuel in a carbon-neutral cycle that uses a very abundant natural resource: silicon. Readily available in sand, it's the seventh most-abundant element in the universe and the second most-abundant element in the earth's crust.
