Calvert 5th Grade Science provides a broad survey of the major areas of science, including the study of cells, plants and animals, ecology, energy, geology, properties of matter, and the natural cycles of life. The curriculum seeks to develop students' ability to understand and participate in scientific inquiry.
Students at this level should begin to understand interrelationships between organisms, recognize patterns in ecosystems, and become aware of the cellular dimensions of living systems. Collectively, this helps students develop and build on their subject-matter knowledge base.
