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.
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.
You were so influenced by this critical time frame, that an allegiance formed during this period reflects various subject material being worked on in current relationships. The arrangement you inadvertently place preeminence upon has continued to filter the seeds of energizing artistic excellence in your current state of affairs. Its deep; real deep, but you are aware of what I am talking about without fully/adequately being able to articulate the succinct words in precise manner. The arising sense of the sacred sensual sexual artistic self in retrospect to those events form what the passionate cohesiveness nature is missing. The first hint of real disillusion appeared and because it did, you buried and disguised it in many personality costumes and sublimated forms of arbitrary denial. The identifiable need for status, prestige and respect, fraught with its insidious forms of all encompassing waves of apathetic overtones, need be investigated and yanked from the soil by the roots. The determinedly ruthless soul demands voluntary surrendered expression of your latent gifts and will not be refused.
5th grade science fair projects are a little bit more involved than the previous grades. At this age students are expected to come up with their own topic, perform the majority of the experiment on their own and be able to write a small report on it with minimal adult assistance. This isnt too difficult because fifth graders are full of questions about the world, so they shouldnt have any trouble coming up with a topic and conducting a little experiment to find out the answer. Though if a student is looking for some ideas, there is one great 5th grade science fair project where one will create a fire proof balloon. To test this, the student will need adult supervision. The adult will assist the 5th grader to blow up the balloon, tie it shut, and place it over a match. The balloon will pop as you bring it close to the flame. The student will then take the second balloon and put ¼ cup of water into balloon, blow it up and tie it closed. When placed over a lit match, the student will find that the balloon will not pop, even if it touches the flame, though it may get a black patch on it from soot. The reason why the balloon will not pop is because the flame heats the liquid behind the rubber, rather than the rubber itself. The student can do another project involving heat and rubber by gathering a few rubber bands and examining the rubber as it relates to heat, a form of energy. All they will need for this experiment is their forehead and some rubber bands. They are simply testing to see if the rubber bands get warmer or cooler when stretched. You can judge this by holding the rubber band to your head while stretching it.
About eight years ago, I was in my New York City apartment one Saturday morning, thinking about all the people in my life who made a difference. There were many, but my fifth grade teachers face swam into focus. The image of her powerful smile was crystal clear. As soon as I saw her in my minds eye, my attention immediately focused on a way to thank her. I got quiet and reflected on this. A few moments later an idea was born. Why not thank her on a national talk show? What could be better than that? The idea was so strong, so powerful and whats more it felt right. After firing off a letter to six national talk shows, I kept it to myself and waited. Ideas should be allowed to percolate and develop in secret before they are shared with the rest of the world. There is a time and place for everything, so I prayed that if it was meant to be, then Mrs. Jordan would be presented with a big surprise at just the right time.
This doesnt mean that you sacrifice quality and basic editing in the process of going simpler but it may mean you trade in some of those $10 words for $5 words and cut that 1,000 word piece to 2-500 word pieces instead. It means that you put items in bullets and instructions in lists and you get to the point as quickly as possible without a lot of fluff. Some writers are better at producing offline content and cant shift to the online methods of successful content. Then there are some who can rake in the readers online but couldnt hack it at all in the offline publishing world. Some gifted writers (or well trained writers) can learn to do both. The latter requires being able to shift back and forth according to which venue you are writing for. Ultimately, understanding the difference will make a world of difference in your writing career.
