Grade 5 Science
Week Six Lessons
This week we will be reviewing, testing , and goal setting! Make the review fun and the memories will stick! Unit Test reviews are just as important throughout the year. The goal is not to memorize for the test, but to refresh their memory and help make those memories permanent.
(A) classify matter based on physical properties, including mass, magnetism, physical state (solid, liquid, and gas), relative density (sinking and floating), solubility in water, and the ability to conduct or insulate thermal energy or electric energy; Readiness Standard
(B) identify the boiling and freezing/melting points of water on the Celsius scale; Supporting Standard
(C) demonstrate that some mixtures maintain physical properties of their ingredients such as iron filings and sand; and Supporting Standard
(D) identify changes that can occur in the physical properties of the ingredients of solutions such as dissolving salt in water or adding lemon juice to water. Supporting Standard
Lesson Ideas and Materials:
Science Wall Complete each day with your choice of word wall words.
(Monday – Tuesday) Review using games and activities for the test
Review activities: quick writes for students to show you what they know, quizzes, games, review the labs they have completed, study their science notebooks with a partner.
(Wednesday) Administer the test
(Thursday – Friday) Go over the test and set goals for future tests.
I grade tests without marking the correct answer. The students use a pen or colored pencil to review the test when we go over it as a class. They write down the explanations we have for each test question.
