Science

The fifth grade science curriculum builds upon the principles of  the Next Generation Science Standards.  Our science classes focus on student investigation and discovery with an emphasis on moving through the scientific process. Further exploration takes place with our science resource teacher on a weekly basis.

There are three units in the 5th grade curriculum.  The units are Ecosystems, Matter, and the Solar System.  Each unit provides opportunity to investigate different aspects of each of these subject areas.  Hands- on activities are provided in order to enrich and extend each unit.
