The activities in the kit teach to these Grade 5 standards:
5.c Students know moving water erodes landforms, reshaping the land by taking it away from some places and depositing it as pebbles, sand, silt, and mud in other places (weathering, transport, and deposition).
1.a Students know that during chemical reactions the atoms in the reactants rearrange to form products with different properties.
1.f Students know differences in chemical and physical properties of substances are used to separate mixtures and identify compounds.
1.g Students know properties of solid, liquid, and gaseous substances, such as sugar (C6H12O6 ), water (H2O), helium (He), oxygen (O2 ), nitrogen (N2), and carbon dioxide (CO2).
