This Month in Fifth Grade

In Science, we will be focusing on ecosystems, and the interactions that exist within them. Students will analyze food chains and webs. They will notice how energy is transferred from one organism to another. Also, students will use food webs to determine the possible effects that would result from a change in one of the populations. Since plants are very important in ecosystems, we will grow our own plants in class, and observe what they need in order to survive.

In Religion we have been discussing the sacrament of Baptism and its importance. Understanding the importance of this sacrament will help us prepare to learn about the other sacraments that we can receive.
