Texas Grade 5
New and expanded TEKS for grade 5 science cover everything from types of energy to insect metamorphosis. We have assembled a suite of student components, including videos, interactivities, and lessons for each and every new or expanded grade 5 science TEKS. Correlated to the "5 E" model of Engage/Explore, Explain, Elaborate, and Evaluate, our materials provide your students with the knowledge and skills they need to master the TEKS while teacher components provide background and teacher support.

Resources Video: Farming the Wind
New TEKS 7C requires students to identify energy resources such as wind, solar, hydroelectric, geothermal, and biofuels. In this video, the Untamed Science crew goes to a wind farm to explain the benefits of alternative energy.
Motion and Forces Interactivity: Carl and the Cannon
Your students won't be able to resist this fun interactivity for TEKS 6D in which they test how varying angle, force, and mass will affect how far Carl the robot will fly when shot from a cannon.
Energy Interactivity: Musical Instruments
Make connections between lesson content and the real world in this interactivity for TEKS 6A. Students see the effect varying pitch and volume have on sound energy waves as they manipulate several musical instruments.
Ecosystem Interactions Interactivity: Ocean Food Web
Food chains and food webs are the subject of new TEKS 9B. Use this interactivity to explore the roles of producers, consumers, and decomposers within an ocean food web with your students, and then use that knowledge to build a balanced food web.
Geologic Time Lesson Review: Fossils
Assess student comprehension of TEKS 7D with this set of question that ask students to identify fossils as evidence of past living organisms and a clue to past environmental conditions.
