Fifth Grade

List of 3 items.

  • Fifth Grade Humanities

    The overarching theme to the Humanities Curriculum in fifth grade is “Let’s Embark on a Journey of Discovery!” Interconnected themes in the English and History curriculums weave together throughout the year. Students are encouraged to ask questions, be curious, and wonder. Overall, the goal is to cultivate lifelong, curious learners who can think, reason, analyze, communicate, and collaborate.
  • Fifth Grade Math

    The fifth grade mathematics program first focuses on the review and mastery of basic math skills and then explores the role of mathematics in our daily lives, the use of problem solving strategies, and the realms of abstract thinking.
  • Fifth Grade Science

    In fifth grade science, students investigate environmental science, weather, forces and motion, and chemistry; with particular emphasis on lower-middle school transition, stewardship, collaboration, and the continued development of a student’s ability to learn from feedback.
