The Fifth Grade GCAS curriculum awakens the student’s intellect and introspection through the lives of great people in history.
In English and Social Studies we combine geography, literature, and early American history to create an experience that challenges students to draw parallels across subjects. Studying the biographies of famous Americans prompts students to formulate their own opinions, make inquiries, explore, and experiment. Students write book reports and do research, concentrating on grammar, spelling, punctuation, and the parts of speech.
In Science, students engage in investigations and experiments that cultivate essential scientific skills such as forming a hypothesis, conducting observations, and taking field notes. The lessons emphasize the scientific method, conservation ecology, meteorology, anatomy, and astronomy and lay the groundwork for more extensive scientific studies in the upper grades.
We're so excited for you and your child's 5th grade year at GCAS. It'll be an experience that you will have you happy you chose GCAS.
