Grade 5. In 15 lessons over 19 class sessions, students explore how plants and animals get the matter and energy they need to live and grow, how they interact in food webs, how change in one part of an ecosystem can have multiple effects, and how newly introduced species can become invasive. For the science challenge, students are challenged to analyze data, develop and use models, and engage in argumentation to make a prediction about which of two coastal locations is likely more susceptible to an invasion by a nonnative sea squirt. Module materials are available as a 1-use module (item #517601), 1-use refurbishment set (item #517604), 3-use module (item #517601U3), 3-use refurbishment set (item #517604U3), student activity guide (item #517603 or #517603SP), student reader (item #517605, #517605A, #517606, #517606A, or #517605ASP), and Spanish components bundle (item #517625).
