5th Grade Science Lessons and Worksheets

With our 5th grade science worksheets, students will begin with an advanced scientific method introduction through application and inquiry-based learning. Students will enhance their knowledge of Earth, physical, and life sciences even further. Students will think like a scientist as they solve problems and observe natural phenomena. A Grade Ahead’s 5th grade science enrichment program will teach students more about:

  • The solar system and weather
  • Energy and motion
  • Cells and biology

Students will also learn inquiry-based learning skills, such as:

  • Critical thinking
  • Inference and observation-based scientific thinking
  • Ability to design an effective experiment with a control and a variable
