• In the coming weeks, students will be exploring the topic of Earth Science. We will have two separate Earth Science units. One will focus on our planet and the other will focus on space.

    This page is dedicated to keeping students and parents aware of what is happening in science class.  You will find an overview of the current unit as well as links to helpful websites.

    Mrs. Wetzel will be guiding our fifth graders in Science this year. The year will begin with a focus on the Scientific Method.

    Mrs. Wetzel's website: 




    Our fifth grade scientists have begun the year reviewing the Scientific Method. Over the next few weeks, we will use this process to test hypotheses and practice forming conclusions based on gathered evidence/data. 

    We will also soon begin our study of cell biology with the help of the Dolan DNA Learning Center. Guest teachers will visit us throughout the month of October and November, and we will visit their facilities in December.
