5.1.8.A.2 Results of observation and measurement can be used to build conceptual-based models and to search for core explanations.
5.1.8.A.3 Predictions and explanations are revised based on systematic observations, accurate measurements, and structured data/evidence.
5.1.8.B.2 Mathematics and technology are used to gather, analyze, and communicate results.
5.1.8.B.4 Scientific reasoning is used to support scientific conclusions. Use quality controls to examine data sets and to examine evidence as a means of generating and reviewing explanations.
5.1.8.C.2 Predictions and explanations are revised to account more completely for available evidence.
5.1.8.C.3 Science is a practice in which an established body of knowledge is continually revised, refined, and extended.
5.1.8.D.1 Science involves practicing productive social interactions with peers, such as partner talk, whole-group discussions, and small-group work.
5.1.8.D.2 In order to determine which arguments and explanations are most persuasive, communities of learners work collaboratively to pose, refine, and evaluate questions, investigations, models, and theories (e.g., argumentation, representation, visualization, etc.)
5.1.8.D.3 Instruments of measurement can be used to safely gather accurate information for making scientific comparisons of objects and events.
5.2.6.A.2 The density of an object can be determined from its volume and mass.Calculate the density of objects or substances after determining volume and mass.
5.4.8.G.1 Water in the oceans holds a large amount of heat, and therefore significantly affects the global climate system.
5.4.8.G.2 Investigations of environmental issues address underlying scientific causes and may inform possible solutions.
5.2.6.E.4 Sinking and floating can be predicted using forces that depend on the relative densities of objects and materials. Predict if an object will sink or float using evidence and reasoning.
