Objects in the Sky


This unit builds on the concepts of the 4th grade unit, The View from Earth, and students demonstrate using models rotation on axis and orbits due to gravity of Earth and other planets.

Systems and Survival


Students examine three different "systems" in their lives, classification system, ecosystems, and human body systems.

Forces and Motion


Students continue to learn about how things move and participate in an exploration into force and motion as related to distance, time, speed, balanced and unbalanced forces, contact and non-contact forces.
