*Science Websites for Kids*

 

These websites will help you study and understand what we are learning about in 5th grade Science.  You can use them to review if you’re not quite sure you understand what we are studying.  You can also use them to practice so the information stays in your head.  You can also use them to explore to learn more if you want to go farther than we did in class.  Whatever you do, just enjoy and learn! 

There are 4 different types of sites:

 G-game

T-tutorial (this will help you learn and review)

I-interactive

V-video 

The letter is in parenthesis at the end of the address
