Welcome to 5th Grade Science!
Through an inquiry method we will explore a variety of topics in Life Science, Earth Science and Physical Science. Essential questions asked and answered in Science 5 will include:
How do scientists gather and share information? What is the scientific method?
How are plants and animals in an ecosystem connected?
What are the natural processes that shape our land?
How do natural events affect our world?
What are properties of matter?
In class we will read and write informational text. Students will do research to formulate ideas and conduct investigations. These activities will build a strong foundation in science and provide opportunities to practice skills like observing, classifying, comparing/contrasting, gathering and recording data, analyzing/ interpreting results and communicating.
Extra Help: Every Wednesday morning from 7:50 to 8:10 am.
