5th grade science projects are a little more involved than previous years, and are generally done by the students with little help from their teachers or parents. They may need some guidance along the way, but most of the work should be done by the student. Fifth grade students are
Fluids: Understanding the dynamics of fluids develops an interest in such fields such as marine studies, chemistry and even biology. 5th grade science projects such as those that target water fluidity or mercury are good to illustrate the various characteristics of the fluids. The shapes that the various fluids would
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).

When writing for marketing purposes, the key isnt to come off sounding intelligent and powerful but to appeal to everyone reading or listening to your text. There is a popular game show on right now called, "Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader". A game show where you match your
5th grade science experiments are fun because the children are able to work more independently and find answers out for themselves. They dont need as much adult assistance and are expected to shoulder much of the responsibility in thinking up their own topic, question and experiment to find the answer.
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
