SCI0500: 5th Grade Science

05/01/2023 to 04/30/2024 • Modified 11/07/2023

Course Description

This science course emphasizes the importance of selecting appropriate instruments for measuring and recording observations. Students are introduced to more detailed concepts of sound and light and the tools used for studying. Students explore the fundamental concepts of matter, including atoms, molecules, elements, and compounds, through a biblical worldview. This scientific view defines the idea that explanations of nature are developed and tested using observation, experimentation, models, evidence, and systematic processes. Students will use the engineering design process to create prototypes and develop an understanding of the steps used. They will use the process to create new ideas and develop these into workable models.
