Welcome to Fifth Grade!Welcome to fifth grade! If you like American History, "playing" with worms, being "energized", reading great books, and going on fantastic field trips, you will love your year as a fifth grader. Our wonderful teachers bring history to life with fun activities that make you feel as if you were back in 1776! The hands - on , inquiry based science units of Weather, Energy, and Nature's Recyclers are full of experiments that will make a scientist out of you! We do "mock assessments" that help to prepare you for sixth grade, while developing your research and technology skills. This past year, we took a field trip to the Historic District and the Constitution Center in Philadelphia; we also go to Peace Valley for a day of outdoor science education. Students get a chance to move classrooms for math, which is a fun way to meet new friends and experience other teachers on the team. In reading, we always have something interesting that relates to the curriculum, whether it is Night of the Twisters, Toliver's Secret, or a current best seller! And...that's not even scratching the surface...so, have a wonderful, safe, summer and rest up for the excitement that awaits you in fifth grade at Mill Creek!
