Service Description

Does you child need enrichment for their current science curriculum or prefer to learn through projects? This course offers private 1:1 instruction on all of 5th grade science in one semester. Students will engage in deep, thought provoking questioning and will work with the teacher to create projects, participate in a demonstrations, or conduct experiments that support the learning goal of the day. Each day's lesson will include a student notebook page (printable PDF) for the student to work with. The science journal will include areas for lab notes, diagrams, graphs, illustrations and other related information. Each lesson will also be cross-curricular, and will integrate many math (measurement, graphing, calculations) and reading skills. The semester will be broken down in to the topics described by the Next Generation Science Standards for 5th grade: ****THIS COURSE HAD BEEN DIVIDED INTO TWO PARTS***** **THIS CLASS INCLUDES SECTIONS 1 of 2 OF THIS CURRICULUM***** (20 sessions) Section 1: (10 Sessions): Lesson 1: What is the Biosphere, Hydrosphere, Geosphere and Atmosphere?
