Empower your students by teaching them the joy of discovery! This "Matter Menu" from Curtis Fisher is rooted in the Essential Standards for fifth grade science, Matter: Properties and Change. Students are able to work together in groups to complete the assignments on their time and schedule (which any teacher can tweak, as needed). The teacher of this class can do what they do best: ask leading questions and facilitate learning! Student will have more hands-on work and thoroughly enjoy their learning experience. In true menu fashion, there's something for everyone - including a link to math and literacy skills!
