5th Grade Module-
To begin the year we are learning about germs and how they are passed. Students will explore how quickly germs can spread, what steps they can take to prevent harmful germs and how their body defends against germs that might not have washed away. Students will be able to describe the differences between bacteria and viruses. Using all of the information learned in class, students will then get to be dectectives and search for "infections" in simulated labs. As a referral you can discuss different vocabulary words with your student that they are learning in class, they will not be tested on these but they are great to go over with them. Each module will have a different list of words, so check it out and discuss with your student!
