Grade 5 Science

The science program is based in the inquiry process and leads students through life science, matter and energy, engineering, and earth and space systems. Students are encouraged to build and create in this discipline, while performing experiments using fair tests and strong observation skills. Units include properties of and changes in matter, human organ systems, forces acting on structures and mechanisms, and conservation of energy and resources. Highlights of this program include building windmills, making jujube molecules and writing comic books presenting the adventures of human body organs.
