Food Energy from the Sun
Next Generation Standards
5-PS3-1 - Use models to describe that that energy in animals’ food (used for body repair, growth, motion, and to maintain body warmth) was once energy from the sun.
Clarification Statement - Examples of models could include diagrams, and flow charts.
5-PS3-1 - Use a model to describe that the food animals digest (a) contains energy that was once energy from the Sun, and (b) provides energy and nutrients for life processes, including body repair, growth, motion, body warmth, and reproduction.
Clarification Statement - Examples of models could include diagrams and flow charts.
Assessment Boundary - Details of cellular respiration, ATP, or molecular details of the process of photosynthesis or respiration are not expected in state assessment.
