5th Grade – SCIENCE – Living Things

Dear 5th graders,

I have put together a lot of information from various sources, to help you deal with our first unit of Science: Living Things. If you click HERE you can explore the concept map that I have prepared. Keep in mind that you must have Java installed on your computer. In case your computer does not have Java yet, you can install it from HERE. It’s very easy and it won’t take you more than two minutes. If you prefer you can download a printed version of the map from HERE.

Well, let me show some interesting LINKS
