Welcome to 5th grade science. I've been teaching at Ardsley for almost 20 years and I wouldn't trade it for the world.

  • The fifth grade science course is a foundations class designed to provide students with a basic knowledge of fundamental concepts in life, earth, and physical science.  Emphasis is placed on learning through inquiry and using the scientific process.  Common misconceptions about science in the natural world will be addressed, and students will be encouraged to relate lessons to the world around them.

    Topics include:  scientific process, the metric system, matter and energy, nutrition, ecology, astronomy, and weather.
