The 5th grade science curriculum focuses on the following:
* The Scientific Method.
* Evolution and Genetics
* Earth's Weather Patterns, Systems and Structures
* Structures and Functions of Living Organisms
* Energy Conservation and Transfer
* Matter: Physical and Chemical Changes

A little about me:
I have been an educator for the past 19 years. I have taught almost every elementary grade level. Fifth grade is by far my favorite. I am originally from Fort Lauderdale, Florida. I moved to North Carolina a few years ago to be closer to family. When I am not at school or lesson planning, I enjoy woodworking, crocheting, and playing with my four-footed furbaby, Daisy.
I look forward to sharing my love of science with your child and helping to prepare them for their journey into Middle School.
