5th grade

We are proud to have three wonderfully dedicated teachers in 5th grade this year!  Mrs. Flores, Mrs. Gregg and Miss Alvidrez work tirelessly to meet the needs of your 5th grade students each day. 

A 21st century lesson they are working on with their students is a unit called “Infectious Disease”.  It’s a Project Lead The Way unit that integrates the use of collaboration, communication, creativity, critical thinking and technology.  It is amazing to see this learning in action. The students are very excited to learn together in a powerful way!

The grade level is also working on their entry to the 2nd Annual Burton Film Festival.  The team decided to create one film broken into three parts to tell the story of Earth’s Place in the Universe.  They are integrating the Next Generation Science Standards into their learning and film.  Each student will have a part in creating the film.  As a culminating event, students will be visiting the Griffith Observatory on March 29th!

We can’t wait to see the end product of this great collaboration with all of the 5th grade students.
