5th Grade Science

Fifth grade Science provides the student with a hands-on, exploratory, student-centered way of teaching and learning. Students will investigate concepts in physical science (i.e. matter, properties of matter, mixtures, chemical reactions, etc.), life science (basic animal needs, food webs, ecosystems, etc.), and earth science (earth’s systems, water sources, human footprint, etc.). This content-rich subject will require students to study for understanding and mastery of the concepts and topics in order to be successful.
