Fifth Grade Resources

Fifth grade is often the last year of elementary school and is an important milestone in a child’s life. The educational materials provided in the Learning Library are there to prepare kids for the transition to middle school. There are thousands of clear-cut worksheets, straightforward lesson plans and self-guided games created by expert teachers for educators to shepherd students into a more independent and advanced level of learning.

Resources to Take Fifth Graders to the Next Level

Fifth Graders are more responsible, opinionated and start to discover their own interests, which makes teaching fifth-graders a challenge and a joy. With the resources provided in the Learning Library, teachers, tutors and parents have the proper materials to meet their student's educational achievement.

Writing prompts such as the What’s Behind the Door? worksheet inspires imagination as students create their own narrative based on a classic scary movie scene. Advanced vocabulary worksheets will transform kids into articulate speakers and writers while Periodic Table challenges spur interest in the unseen micro world of molecules and chemistry.

Tricky, irregularly-spelled words are no match for advanced-aged students with online worksheets. Other online lessons include parentheses problem assignments to teach kids algebra basics.

There are hundreds of creative science projects to engage fifth-graders in an experimental, hands-on way. Popular activities include The Effect of Color on Emotion, a phycological look at calming blues and energetic reds and how they affect the mind. The crowd-pleasing, homemade lava lamp project teaches kids about the reaction between oil and water—it’s informationally far out.

There are many other resources—inviting games, effective workbooks and helpful guided lessons—in the Learning Library to help kids evolve into the mature students they are soon to be.
