Welcome to the fifth grade! We hope you’ll join us as we become pioneers in the 1800s traveling in wagon trains across the United States and develop geography skills while hunting for artifacts across the globe – all without having to leave our classroom. During science class we explore biology, the human body, earth science, and physics. For social studies we discover what America was like from the first explorers up to the Civil War. Language arts will include writing for authentic audiences using a class creative writing blog in addition to challenging our spelling skills and improving our reading fluency and comprehension skills. We continue to foster our creativity in art class as we learn about master artists and practice their techniques. Character development and God’s love and care for us are woven throughout the subject areas that we will explore.
