Fifth grade is an important year as the students are completing their last year in elementary school and getting ready to make the BIG move to middle school. Our goals are to instill in our students the strategies that are necessary for them to be able to succeed both in their 5th grade year and throughout their school career. Developing good study habits and independence will help in this transition.
In Science our students complete Earth and Sun, Mixtures and Solutions, and Living Systems units throughout the year. In Social Studies we focus on American History. Students learn about the Age of Exploration, Thirteen Colonies, The Revolutionary War, Civil War, mapping skills, and the United States government.
