Science Homework

Good Evening Grade 5 Families,

Your child might have mentioned that they will be required to conduct a science experiment testing how phosphates affect growing things (specifically beans).

 

Students are required to create their own experiment with a partner.

One cup/bag needs to be watered with only water 

The next set of cups should include different levels of soap and water (least amount of soap to the most) 

 

Videos that will help students with the procedure part of the experiment:

They can use either cup method or bag method. Remember! beans need to be watered very lightly each day.

 

 

The types of beans students can use are: 

Kidney Beans (usually the best)

Red Beans

Lima Beans

Chickpeas 

Pinto Beans

All these beans are available at your local grocery store: Bulkbarn may carry some of these (be advised that that they do carry peanuts and it’s not certain if they have come into contact with the beans)

 

Students are required to write one draft copy covering the following: 

 

Question 

Hypothesis 

Materials 

Procedure 

Data/Observations 

Results and application

 

All of these terms are explained in their science textbook. Page numbers should be written in their agendas. 

 

The sooner students start, the better the results :) 

 

Have Fun! 

Mrs. Erhardt

 Hello Grade 5 Families, 

Drop Off Procedures:

Thank you for your patience with the new drop off and pick up procedures in the back parking lot. Please use the back parking lot if you have a child in Grades 2 to Grades 7 the sooner we learn the new drop off and pick up procedures the quicker the flow of traffic will move.  Please refer to the Thursday letter from Mrs. Moorehead.

Speech Arts:

The Speech Arts Tri-School Festival will be held in Sacred Heart on Thursday, March 9.  In Grade 5, the students will only have a Poetry Reading. This year, participation in Speech Arts will be optional for the students. If they would like to try out for the Tri-School Festival, they will bring 2 poems from home for the teacher to review before practicing. An in-class festival (date TBA) will be held and they will be judged by 2 or 3 other teachers from the school.  These teacher judges will choose the best 4 students to represent our school at the Tri-School Festival at Sacred Heart.  Please discuss this opportunity with your child. Please be advised that I will not be forcing any students to participate. If your feel  that your child has the gift of reciting poetry in front of a live audience, please feel free to encourage them to participate in this event. This week, I will be checking their poetry choices.
