5th Grade



Fifth grade is referred to as the “golden year” because students at this age are enthusiastic about learning, eager for new challenges and capable of hard work and creativity.

We will be comparing the marine ecosystems of the west coast of Oregon and how it is similar and different to the west coast of Iceland. Our fifth-grade class went to the coast this fall to go tide pooling and explore what grows near and in the water along the coast. The students are curious to see if there are similar things living in similar, Icelandic environments.
