The accelerated mathematics sequence uses the Connected Mathematics Project units beginning in grade 5 (heterogeneous classes use CMP materials in Grades 6-8). Science 5 Three six-week units are taught through hands-on lessons with a focus on observation and inquiry. The units are: 1. 2. 3. Earth Science - Students learn about different forces that change the earth's surface. Human Body -Students learn about systems in the body with a focus on how the parts of our body work together for movement. Energy - Students learn how energy is all around us, the transfer of energy, and the variety of forms energy takes in our world.

Social Studies 5 There will be 3 units with an overall focus of U.S. History. Unit 1: American History Timeline (Approximately 3 weeks) Learning Targets: Students will understand that history is sequential. Students will understand that the Colonial Era and American Revolution resulted from what came before and helped determine what came after. Unit 2: Colonial Era (1607-1763) (Approximately 6 weeks) Learning Targets: Students will understand that people came (or were forced to come) to America from different countries and regions (Great Britain, France, Spain, Africa) during the Colonial Era for a variety of reasons (religious, economic, and political). Students will understand that the Colonial Era settlers had to overcome many hardships (environmental, economic, and cultural) to survive and thrive in a new land.

We focus on oral

communication and pronunciation, and explore the culture of Argentina in an interdisciplinary unit.
