Science: We demonstrate an understanding of the human skeletal, muscular, and digestive systems. We learn about various forms and sources of renewable energy, and the ways this energy can be transformed and conserved.
Social Studies: We examine Canadian Citizenship and the Canadian Government. We visit Waterloo City Hall and visit with the Mayor, and we even write a letter to the Prime Minister!
Art: We learn about different artists and their visual art style that inspire us to create our own pieces. We also complete “The Grade 5 Sketchbook Project” with weekly sketch assignments that apply various elements of art.
