5th Grade Unit Studies
Unit studies are meant to incorporate a topic throughout all your areas of study. For example, let's say your child wanted to learn more about cats. You could have them multiply cats during math, or figure out how many cat treats would be needed in a 30 day period for a total of 10 cats. Grammar could consist of reading a story about cat behaviors and then working on spelling words, such as feline, jaguar, Siamese, or bobtail. Kids could experiment to find out whether cats prefer tuna over salmon during science class. In history, the children can research which countries the different breeds of cats came from.
