Welcome to Mrs. Patti Kerber’s 5th Grade Classroom. I will be your Science and Social Studies teacher. Our units of study this year will cover the different cycles, the environment, plants and animals, Western Civilizations, and North American Indian tribes. I hope to make this an interesting as well as enjoyable experience for each of you. I am available before and after school to help you with your studies. My assessments over the year will include: 4 typed essays, 3 craft projects, vocabulary assignments, 2 book reports, and a test after completion of each Unit and a weekly quiz.
