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 first stage of learning is the collection of data. We are all inundated with data - every page we read, every email and text message, everything we hear - in fact, everything that is taken in by all of our senses -- is data. Elementary school students are taught a lot of data. Adults are also inundated with data, but while the students are expected to absorb everything they are taught, adults look for relevance and purpose within the data - they filter the data according to their needs and interests. Management guru, the late Peter Drucker, said that when you give data relevance and purpose, you get information - the second stage of the learning model. Adults seek information. Children dont know what will be relevant and purposeful to their lives, so they absorb all the data they are given. As they mature into adults, a lot of the data they learned in school is laid aside in their brains so that they can focus on what is relevant and purposeful to their lives. For some people, much of this data gets buried deep within their long-term memories and can be recalled - these people become the trivia experts and the Jeopardy contestants. But for most people, much of the data absorbed in school is lost - thats why adults have such a difficult time on the television show.
It is even said to prevent and lessen the symptoms of Alzheimers disease by deterring aluminum absorption in to the body. Silica is also a very potent cosmetic solution. Skin needs silica to keep the process of cell regeneration from stopping over time. Our skin starts to deteriorate because as we age, our skin cells stop regenerating fast enough to keep our skin smooth and firm. This is why we develop wrinkles and loose skin. With silica however, this process is enhanced and your skin starts looking younger. Silica also benefits your hair, which is about as rich in silica as your bones are and hence needs as much caring. After all, it is every human beings crowning glory and without it, much of the natural beauty of a person is lost. Diatomaceous earth works wonders for your hair by making it stronger and healthier from the roots. As a result you will experience less breakage and healthier hair. And since all this is happening from within your body, you will see that the changes are quite long staying and completely natural.
As your student goes through the second half of the 5th grade year it is a pivotal point in the level of self- confidence s/he will have going into the new environment next year. If s/he can perform well and consistently, doing things is a relatively organized way, there will be a foundation of both confidence and skills to fall back on in the new middle school environment. This is a critical time to foster the development of habits of operating in an organized manner. Do you know where your books are? Did you turn in the book report on time? Did you tell Mom about the poster board you need for tomorrow before or after dinner? (This would be the same poster board the teacher told you to get 3 days ago.)
You have to guide your child, encourage his innate curiosity and build on it for numerous 5th grade science fair projects. You will be surprised at how many questions he has that can be answered with simple demonstrations using simple materials and equipment. Simple Processes No matter how simple the process adapted, it must still adhere to the scientific method. This way, your child can be involved from the first to the last step of the scientific process that, in turn, will make him better prepared to present the results of his study. Keep in mind, however, that the scientific process is not a set of rigid rules. You can be more flexible with the process but within limits since objective observations and results must be made. After all, 5th grade science fair projects are supposed to be fun - not rigid - and easy.
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.
