Science 5-6: Mrs. McBride
WELCOME TO SCIENCE
Welcome back to school fifth and sixth graders! I'm looking forward to an exciting school year with you in our Science classes!
Throughout the year students will engage in the Science and engineering practices as we make sense of scientific phenomena. Concepts investigated in fifth grade include matter, Earth's systems, space, and ecosystems. In sixth grade, students focus on investigating concepts centered on living things, body systems, weather and climate, matter and energy, and ecology.
Our Google Classroom contains resources such as assignments and links to materials/resources.
The Science textbook, "Elevate Science", is used for specific concepts and phenomena we will be investigating.
We will begin the year with a focus on safety and scientific practices.
