California State Content Standards for Science

There are three areas of study for science in fifth grade:

    Life Sciences, 1st Trimester (Structure of Living Things, Plant Structures)

    Earth Science, 2nd Trimester (Matter and Changes in Matter)
    Physical Science, 3rd Trimester (Earth's Water, Weather, and the Solar System)

Students have both a textbook and an interactive textbook (IT).  We will primarily use the Interactive Textbook and some will be assigned for homework.
We will be using Mystery Science hands on activities in class to build student's scientific knowledge. Many of the lessons will include a quiz. Quizzes along with 
their science notebook will be used to determine student grade.
