• Welcome to 5th Grade Science 

     

     

    Welcome to fifth grade and I am excited to teach science. I strongly believe in making learning fun by incorporating many creative and engaging activities throughout the lessons and using various teaching methods to reach all learners.

    Incorporating group projects where students have to work together to develop something related to the topic works very well. By making learning interactive, actively engages students and raises their interest in the current topic or unit. Using various learning materials to compliment my teaching helps engage students to keep them focused on the content. Apart from textbooks, I count on numerous sources for making my class fun: discussion, video clips, group work, experiments, outdoor exploration, and pop-up quizzes.

    Challenging students by providing hands-on, dynamic activities that require critical thinking skills such as problem-solving, riddles, or reading comprehension questions sparks student interest and gets them thinking. Sometimes allowing these activities to be performed in groups creates more interaction between students and enforces the power of teamwork. These cooperative learning activities allow for more interaction between students, letting them learn through listening and speaking or even teaching each other.
