These 5th grade science lesson plans consists of all the lesson plans that were written for the 5th grade science core taken from the State Science Teacher Resource Book and from the Elementary CORE Academies from 2002 through 2010. They have all been written by teachers of Utah. If you have a particular lesson or resource that you want to share for this webpage, please contact me. If you have questions on a certain lesson plan, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
These lesson plans are here to help you teach science where you won't need to search. When all the lesson plans are taught, you will have mostly covered all the objectives and indicators for each standard. They are generally in the order each standard is presented. If you use them and you see mistakes in the writing, content, or something is not coming through, please contact me at email@example.com and I will fix them. Feedback is welcome.
