May 2017 ~ What’s New in Fifth Grade? 


During the month of May, we will continue our in depth study on fractions.  After completing fractions, students will work with two- and three-dimensional figures.  Volume is introduced to students through concrete exploration of cubic units and culminates with the development of the volume formula for right rectangular prisms.  The second half of the module turns to extending students’ understanding of two-dimensional figures.

In science, we will continue to learn about the systems of the human body.  We will learn how these systems work and interact with each other.  We will also learn to identify the parts of these systems through the use of diagrams and models.

In social studies, we will continue to examine the governments of the Western Hemisphere. We will discuss the history and government of the United States and of New York State. We will also discuss world history and government, including civics and citizenship.

In ELA, we will continue to analyze the biography Promises to Keep: How Jackie Robinson Changed America by his daughter, Sharon Robinson.  Students will develop their understanding of the cultural context in which these athletes competed and the barriers these athletes broke during the times in which they lived.
