NEW LAST YEAR: The fifth grade classes will be "teaming" our lessons for Science and Social Studies. This means that the students will stay in our class for Social Studies and then will go to Mrs. Runge and Mrs. Gaven's class for Science. By doing this, we are preparing our students for the switching they will be doing in the middle school next year. We are all very excited about this approach and we feel you will be, too. All Social Studies inquiries will be directed to myself and Mrs. Ross and all Science inquiries will be directed to Mrs. Runge (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Mrs. Gaven (email@example.com).
Currently, we use the Harcourt School Publishers Science program. We conduct note-taking, hands-on activities, games, and role-playing in Science.

We will also be testing out Science Kits this year, which will provide students with an exciting opportunity to learn more about the world around them, with an inquiry-based approach.
Additionally, the science program is supplemented by the DARE program, which runs from January through March.
