                                                   Homework
Homework is not given daily in science. When homework is given, it is expected to be done to the best of the student's ability. It will be collected/checked and credit will be given effecting the student's report card grade. Please check your child's homework notebook/assignment book to see if there is science homework assigned.

Projects
In addition to homework, there will also be class projects. Please speak with your child about group behavior and participation to accomplish the projects. Project grades will also be given and will effect the student's report card grade.  A science fair project is required from all fifth grade students, more information will be given at a future date.
Tests
To assess how much you child is learning, there will be three tests per unit after each chapter is completed. A review sheet will go out a few days before the test is given. Please go over the review sheet with your child to make sure he/she is studying and knows the material.
