Hello Fifth Grade Scientists!

Here are some websites where you can review science material, play science games, and learn activities to prepare you for the 5th Grade Science Exam!

CMAS Preparation Websites



This year you will be studying many topics from the Colorado Assessment Standards for fifth grade science as well as a number of additional enrichment activities. The standards may be viewed by clicking on the link below.



Science Strand
5th Grade Content

Physical Science
1. Mixtures of matter can be separated regardless of how they were created; all weight and mass of the mixture are the same as the sum of the weight and mass of its parts.

Life Science
1. All organisms have structures and systems with separate functions
2. Human body systems have basic structures, functions, and needs

Earth Science
1. Earth and sun provide a diversity of renewable and nonrenewable resources
2. Earth's surface changes constantly through a variety of processes and forces
3. Weather conditions change because of the uneven heating of Earth's surface by the Sun's energy. Weather changes are measured by difference in temperature, air pressure, wind, and water in the atmosphere and type of precipitation
