5th and 6th Grade

5th & 6th Grade

The fifth and sixth grade curriculum is aggressive and fully aligned to the Arizona College and Career Ready Standards. EDUPRIZE provides a technology-rich environment for all its students.

The Arizona Standards require that students learn and apply complex, multi-step mathematical operations. Our math programs adoptions are used to assist our learners to practice math concepts that are also applied through our cross curricular programs. EDUPRIZE offers daily direct instruction on focus skills and a completely differentiated curriculum in math and reading. The language arts program is rich in literature and informational text based in the Harcourt Brace series and Great Books. Lucy Calkin’s materials are used to ensure the writing process is explicitly taught and supports reading acquisition and extensions. Students participate in daily progress monitoring and individualized instruction through our technology applications right within their classrooms to ensure student progress, and remediation or enrichment is provided as necessary.

Fifth and Sixth grade have fascinating, science-based thematic units called Cottages. Each nine-week cottage is designed with hands-on activities and lessons to stimulate children’s interests in many different genres and allow students to solidify basic skills through application of all basic skills through their participation in the sciences. The cottages consist of:

5th Grade Cottages

Students develop an understanding that changes can occur to matter/objects on Earth or in space, but both energy and matter follow the pattern of being conserved during those changes.

Students develop an understanding of patterns and how genetic information is passed from generation to generation and how genetic information  and environmental features impact the survival of an organism.

Students develop an understanding of how gravitational forces in space cause observable patterns due to the position of Earth, Sun, Moon, and stars.

Students understand the history of the United States including Historic and economic events, creation of U.S. Constitution, development of government, the influence of immigration, contributions of various ethnic groups, roles, and responsibilities as citizens.

6th Grade Cottages

Students develop an understanding of forces and energy and how energy can transfer from one object to another or be converted from one form to another.

Students develop an understanding of how energy from the Sun is transferred through ecosystems.

Students develop an understanding of the scale and properties of objects in the solar system and how forces (gravity) and energy cause observable patterns in the Sun-Earth-Moon system.

Students will understand the cultural, religious, economic, and political systems of selected societies in the Eastern Hemisphere.
