5th grade science projects can include seeing which brand of soda will decay a previously lost tooth the most. To do this experiment, you will need several different brands of soda, some teeth that you have lost recently, a few small dishes or cups, and a pen and paper to make a chart to record your findings. To begin, you can set up the various bowls or cups and place a tooth in each one. Next, add a different brand of pop to each bowl or cup. Be sure to label each one so you know what brand of pop is in it. Place them in an out-of-the-way place where they will not be disturbed and check them each day to see if there is any decay starting. Once you see some decay beginning, you can mark it on your chart and then see which one gets the most decay.

In other words, some sort of definitive ongoing relationship with yourself and the exacting knowledge, in a specific field of endeavor, still lingers influencing your actions, thoughts and behavior. Though you may be totally unaware of its swaying breeze of artistic balm, an unnamable restlessness beckons to be reunited with its soothing patterned paradigm. I encourage you to answer this very personal ubiquitous inner call. Nothing else will satisfy the gnawing unsettling disturbance until you do. Every single act you undertake is being subtly influenced by that 10-11 time period in meaningful ways. Little things unnoticed before will suddenly appear as if out of nowhere to urge you onto and into your grail search of heroic splendor. You are in search of part yourself left waiting in halls of the 5th grade. {IF you absolutely can not recall the flavor of intensity in the 5th grade, try the same experiment on the 6th.} But, I remain firmly grounded on my position that it is the 5th grade, undoubtedly that makes the difference. Its where you found what really mattered to you and what didnt.

You are standing at a pivotal crossroads once again in your life, not unlike the time frame during your 10th to 11th year. What year was it when you were 10-11 years old? What was the decidedly prominent focus occurring in the local, national, and worlds news? This information can be found on the internet should you be so inclined, interested and vested enough to search for it. What you turn over from the soil of discontent will prove to be surprising and relevant. The undisputed fact that everything is connected shows its true light during this dark search. It was during this phase of your individual life, that an element of unexpressed talent can be recovered. You laughed a lot, felt uninhibited and free as you never had before or since.

Diatomaceous earth is a natural product that isnt exactly earth. It is actually the fossilized remains of microscopic organisms called Diatoms. You might remember them from junior high science labs. If you dont, ask a 5th grader! So these organisms create a shell around them that later gets fossilized and these fossils are ground formed in to diatomaceous earth, which is 84% silicon dioxide or Silica. It has already been proven by science that silica is that one trace mineral that is essential for human life. This is why this wonderful natural substance can prove to be highly beneficial when ingested by human beings.

Several years ago educators tried to launch national standards in education. Knowing that families move, some of them multiple times, it seemed invaluable to have some commonalities state to state. Otherwise kids in California learned about life science in the 5th grade and earth science in the 6th. After the student finished 5th his family moved to Idaho where students studied earth science in the 5th grade and life science in the 6th. While this offered the student a double-whammy in life science, this also meant that there was no formal earth science instruction so that when test time rolled around, the student was left with large learning gaps. National standards were intended to alleviate this stressful situation by ensuring that all students are taught what they need to know and understand with grade level expectations in mind. The biggest problem with the first go-round on national standards was the word "national". States rights folks determined that the federal government was interfering yet again with demands of what to teach, when, and how. While there was a "what to teach" foundation, these "whats" were items that students need to know and be able to do to be successful. The when was by grade level. These seem rather important and valuable for efficiency and continuity.

The math standards are a bit more complicated, especially because I have not taught K-12 Math (whereas I have experience with K-12 English). Knowing that concrete thinkers suffer with abstract reasoning and that that is the basis of algebra, student maturity becomes a serious issue when determining why Benny gets it and Sally cannot get it yet. Also with math, it is not just repetition with complexity increasing, but individual concepts. You cant simply skip multiplication and expect students to automatically divide. But once I laid out the K-12 standards and divided, grouped, rearranged, and created a total picture, I felt much more at ease. The science standards, while difficult for a non-science teacher, really depend on State X and State Y agreeing to teach certain concepts and scientific areas at specific grade levels. Science also has that wonderful magic called a lab. Students who go to lab with a hypothesis and then experiment following specified steps, draw conclusions and finally prove or refute their original hypothesis are actively engaged and so they remember and are able to replay and apply their knowledge. This makes uniting concepts, units, and areas of study far easier. While many insist that is time to abandon the Common Core and move back to state and local expectations or to reinvent with a new plan, this presents the problem of continuity in education and offering equal and ample opportunity for learning for all students everywhere. I believe it is totally possible to understand and implement the Common Core and still teach with strategies and technique that reach and teach every child. They supply commonality and continuity that benefit every learner.
