5th Grade Science Projects

 

One project that all students participated in was the “Parts of Plant Project”.   The students were asked to create a visual representation of a plant and label the parts of the plant.  In addition, they had to describe the function of each of the parts and explain why that part is important to the plant.  When the students were finished with their projects, they presented them to their classmates during science class. 

 

The accelerated students also participated in the STEMScopes Arctic Plant Challenge where they were challenged to work in small groups to design a new plant that could survive in the harsh arctic tundra environment.   They had to consider a variety of criteria and constraints: the plant must be able to survive without reaching soil; plant must be able to get water; plant must be able to protect itself from freezing; and grow in a place where it can get enough air.  They created a blueprint and then designed their plant using the provided materials.  When the groups finished their project, they presented their new plant and explained what features they included and how the plant would be able to adapt to the environment.  Pictured with their projects (right to left) are Jenna Combs, Cody Fuller, Carson Ryan and Hana Saich.
