Welcome to Mrs. Green’s 5th Grade Science Class!

 

I am very excited to get this year underway.  I have revisited my lesson plans this summer and added more hands-on, authentic learning opportunities so that students can better grasp science concepts.  Additionally, I am adding STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) lessons to my curriculum.  This integrated approach will encourage students think critically to solve problems which mimic the skills they need to successful in school, work, and life in general.  I look forward to an exciting year in 5th grade Science.  Please check back to my webpage often to see upcoming projects, pictures of class activities, and student recognition.
