New Standards in Science

We are excited to be starting a new unit in Science that focuses on weather, climate and weather patterns.  We are looking forward to using Palencia’s Weather STEM to help the students understand all about weather and the tools used to measure the environment.  Watch the weather report with your child if you get a chance and talk about how weather changes and the weather maps used in the report. 


SC.5.E.7.1-Create a model to explain the parts of the water cycle. Water can be a gas, a liquid, or a solid and can go back and forth from one state to another.

SC.5.E.7.2-Recognize that the ocean is an integral part of the water cycle and is connected to all of Earth’s water reservoirs via evaporation and precipitation processes.

SC.5.E.7.3-Recognize how air temperature, barometric pressure, humidity, wind speed and direction, and precipitation determine the weather in a particular place and time.

SC.5.E.7.4-Distinguish among the various forms of precipitation (rain, snow, sleet, and hail), making connections to the weather in a particular place and time.

SC.5.E.7.5-Recognize that some of the weather-related differences, such as temperature and humidity, are found among different environments, such as swamps, deserts, and mountains.

SC.5.E.7.6-Describe characteristics (temperature and precipitation) of different climate zones as they relate to latitude, elevation, and proximity to bodies of water.
