↓What will your child LEARN
This course follows Alberta Education standards for 5th grade science. The students will receive a broad overview of many different types of science in order to better understand the world around them. They will begin by reviewing the scientific method and the steps to designing a good experiment. The students will learn about galaxies and will review information about our solar system and the planets within it. They will learn about the water cycle and the causes of the weather we see around us. The students will learn that environmental changes can cause evolution in both plants and animals. They will review the major systems in the human body and then will learn about similarities between those system and the parts of a plant.
The student will build simple electrical circuits and devices and learn about the connection between magnetism and electricity. By mixing different materials together, they’ll learn to recognize what dissolves and what reacts. Your child will also carry out field and classroom studies of wetlands, learning about the organisms, interactions and human impacts that occur in these ecosystems. They’ll observe, describe and interpret weather phenomena like rain, hail, sleet and snow, understanding that weather and climate can be affected by human actions.
