Grade 5 Science

Grade 5

Grade 5 Science kindles the interest in students to learn by using grade-appropriate proficiency in developing knowledge using models, planning and carrying out investigations, and analyzing and interpreting data. Calculating and computational thinking, observation, obtaining, evaluating, and communicating information are additional practices to understand the core ideas.
