Hi Parents and 5th grade students,

Below I have added all 5 of the assignments that were posted on the Science Lab google classroom for grade 5. Each date contains a reading and a set of questions. The dates are 4/20, 4/27, 5/4, 5/11, and 5/18.  Please be sure to include your child’s name and room number on their answers.

If your child has completed the assignments in Science Lab google classroom they do not need to complete them again.

Thank you.
