February 2017 ~ What’s New in Fifth Grade? 


During the month of February, we will continue our in depth study on fractions.  We will continue to add and subtract fractions with unlike denominators, including mixed numbers.  We will also solve word problems containing fractions.  Lastly, we will estimate fractions and use fractional models in our work.

In science, we will continue to learn and use the microscope.  We will conduct labs using the microscope and also learn to identify the many different parts of animal and plant cells. We will then begin learning about the systems of the human body.

In social studies, we will begin 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 our study on the rainforest.  We will read a non-fiction book, which focuses on a scientist’s study on the rainforest.  We will research the parts of the rainforest and the fauna and flora within the rainforest. Using our knowledge of text features we will compare articles, videos, and interviews.
