5th Grade Digital Learning
Greetings 5th Graders! We hope you are doing well and we miss you all! We wish we could be at school with you but since we can’t, we have come up with some fun activities. We hope you enjoy them as well. The lessons we have posted will help students prepare for 6th grade. Parents, we don’t want the suggestions we have posted to overwhelm you in any way. Please let us know if you have questions. These lessons should not take more than a couple hours to complete. If you are wanting more for your student to do, refer to our educational websites page. If students need a specific login for Readworks or NoRedInk, check your reading teacher’s page.
Since we are all stuck at home, we thought that exploring a different National Park each week would be a fun way to learn and explore.
The theme this week is “Carlsbad Caverns in New Mexico.” Before you complete any of the assignments, take the virtual field trip by clicking on this link: https://artsandculture.withgoogle.com/en-us/national-parks-service/parks
The caves in this park are pretty amazing!
Have fun & happy learning! Love, The 5th Grade Teachers
