March 2017 ~ What’s New in Fifth Grade? 


During the month of March, we will continue our in depth study on fractions.  We will learn to multiply and divide 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 begin 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 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 begin module 3A.   This module begins with a brief study of the importance of sports in American culture over time. The heart of this module is a whole class study of the short but challenging 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.
