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

 

 Science Progress Reports -

Please be aware that Science grades tend to fall once we get into the content (soil, weather, solar system, etc.).  The first 9 weeks has primarily been process skills which students tend to do well on. Now that we are delving into our content, it is important for students to be diligent about getting work turned in on time, attending class regularly, and studying outside the classroom.  They can always check out a Science textbook to keep at home if needed.

Norman Challenge – Event Information  https://www.juniorbotballchallenge.org/events/oklahoma-junior-botball-challenge-1/

A note from KISS -
Attend the Junior Botball Challenge Event on November 15th at Monroe Elementary School in Norman! This is going to be a challenge event combined with a help day for teams. Even if your team has only completed 1 or 2 of the challenges – COME TO THIS EVENT! We will be awarding completion buttons, but not trophies. Our goals for this event are to help the students see how the tournament runs, practice going through the process and get help from our staff with programming, building and troubleshooting. It’s going to be a fun, learning experience with no pressure. It will be the perfect chance for them to practice and feel more prepared for the big regional event on March 28th.
