Fifth Grade Science
Students will integrate technology, engineering, and various field trips to enhance and teach core concepts of physical and earth science. Students study microbiology, learning the basic structures and functions of cells, as well as how these cells have evolved into the unique and diverse living things we now live among. Students explore the many biomes of the Earth and the different ecosystems within them. Students also use data collection to complete activities that strengthen their understanding of the steps of the Scientific Method. Students will learn about ecosystems, animal and plant adaptations, the solar system, forces and motion, and more. Throughout this, students learn to become stewards of the Earth and learn about our duty to protect, restore and observe our local and global ecosystems.
