Overall Science Review for MCAS in May :)
Fifth Grade Science 2017-2018
This year in science we are going to be covering a variety of topics as we prepare for our spring MCAS.
We will beginning our year learning about the science practices that will be intertwined throughout all of our units and is the underlying base for our report cards. So it is essential that the students receive a strong base on the expectations and practices in the science classroom so that they can use those skills throughout the year in all units of study.
The Four practices we will focus on this year are:
Planning and Carrying out Investigations
Use of Computational Thinking
Engaging and Arguments from Evidence
Below are the rubrics associated with these practices that will be explained in detail to the students and referred to often during class assignments.
