4 Science Class and Lab days - Fifth grade students have labs a minimum of twice per week, Tuesdays and Thursdays. Since we are in a lab we have the freedom to add labs as needed. - Ms. Porter will come to the lab to teach. - Each student will keep a lab journal that remains at school. They have a rubric that guides them so they know how they are graded. Resources - Each student has two workbooks entitled Passwords. These will be used as classroom workbooks and also as homework. - Additional resources will be used and provided as needed. Student Objective Tracking - This follows the same pattern as Math. Homework - Each student will receive a homework packet at the beginning of each week and will work on the packet throughout the week. The packet will be designed to enhance the classroom learning and the work will come from a Passwords workbook or the Comprehensive Science Assessment book. - Please do not remove pages from the Passwords books, but pages may be removed from the CSA. Grading Policy - Class work and home work = 50% -Tests, projects, and quizzes = 40% - Science lab participation, paperwork, and lab journal = 10%
