    SUPPLY LIST:
     
    The only supply needed for Science 5 is a pencil!  All other materials, including student notebooks, will be supplied in the classroom.
     
    CURRICULUM:
     
    We will be using the FOSS Science Materials.  FOSS stands for Full Option Science System.  This is a very hands-on, inquiry based curriculum.  Students will do much of their work in class.
     
    ATTENDANCE:
     
    Because Science in 5th grade involves much in class group work, attendance in class is very important.  If work is missed, the student must schedule a time with Ms. Bond to complete what has been missed, either during a study hall or during advisement period.
