Life Science Vocabulary

Life Science Vocabulary

Life science lessons often include complex, unfamiliar vocabulary. The study of the human body, for example, can involve multiple systems, each with their own set of structures and terminology. Help your child keep these terms straight by spending additional time learning and reviewing while participating in science experiments at home.

Coordinate Planes and Function Boxes

Coordinate Planes and Function Boxes

Connect your child's understanding of input/output boxes to coordinate planes! Since 5th graders typically focus on the positive numbers of the coordinate plane, playing a game like Battleship is a good way to help your child practice finding graphing positions by listing ordered pairs. Also, you can print out graph paper and create your own game! Just label the sides and pair up with your child to start plotting your points and guessing their points!

Informational Writing

Informational Writing

Invite your child to choose a topic of interest, then give them a structured note-taking tool to guide their research. Remember: Historians don't just talk about figures and dates — they explore the time period and geography surrounding them. Rather than simply restating historical facts, encourage your child to evaluate and analyze why events happened, as well as the lasting effects of the time period.
