We know that we get energy for going through our day from food. But how does energy come in our food in the first place. Join Jared as he explains how human beings obtain energy. Solar energy reaches our planet in the form of heat and light. Plants convert this light into food through a process called photosynthesis. When we eat these plants, the energy is transferred to us. The question is how life survives in the deep oceans, where there is no sunlight. These living organisms obtain energy from the heat of the Earth.
This video satisfies the 5-PS3-1 requirement of fifth-grade science proficiency.
Students who demonstrate understanding can: 5-PS3-1. Use models to describe that energy in animals’ food (used for body repair, growth, motion, and to maintain body warmth) was once energy from the sun.
