    Welcome to Ramsey Magnet School of Science 5thgrade!

    In 5th grade, we look forward to being a collaborative and creative group of learners. Through exploration and inquiry-based activities, we push students to grow and reach their full potential.

    Science: We will explore science through hands-on, activity-based science kits. Three of the main kits focus on “Earth and Sun", "Mixtures and Solutions", and "Living Systems". We integrate science into reading, writing, math, and technology. We have students participate in the annual Ramsey Science Fair, enjoy guest speakers, field trips, and assemblies.

    English/Language Arts: In 5th grade, students will be taught with a focus on the Idaho Core Standards. Students will write narratives, opinions, and informative essays. We teach students strategies to independently and proficiently read and enjoy various types of texts. 

    Math: Through a variety of thinking strategies we move through five main areas of mathematics: operations and algebraic thinking, number and operations in base ten, fractions, measurement and data, and geometry, as aligned with Idaho Core Standards. 

    Social Studies:  In our study of U.S. History, we start our year with learning about map skills and by learning about Native American tribes. We continue progressing through time as we learn about European explorers, the 13 original colonies, and the Revolutionary War. We end the year with the study of government. 

    We are looking forward to a great year of learning!
