Science

One of the highlights of our fifth grade year is the Science Models Fair!  This year, we are focusing on creating and explaining science models. Students will have the opportunity to research a science-related topic of their choice and create a model representing this scientific concept or system.  Our Science Models Fair will be held on Friday, February 28, 2020. Please scroll to the bottom of this page to find documents and resources related to the Science Models Fair.

Students will expand their scientific content knowledge through a Scholastic publication called Super Science.  Once a month, students will bring home a copy of this magazine.  You can find this publication online, as well as accompanying videos, games and activities.  You can access the digital version of Super Science here.  You will need to get your classroom password from your teacher.
