5th Grade Science
What can parents and students expect?
Each student will have a green science binder to keep their work organized. Binders will need to be brought to science class each day. Pencil Cases will need to be brought to science class daily along with agendas. Each child will be responsible for learning and organizing their science vocabulary. Notice of tests will be given at least a week in advance and students will be responsible for writing homework assignments and test dates in their agendas. Students will be expected to study for science tests.
