Mrs. Merrell's Office Hours

I am setting up office hours for students to connect with me and each other. We will use Google Hangout Meets for this. This is the way for students to get help with science assignments. Students can connect by using the link on my calendar. The link for the office hours calendar can be found below and in Google Classroom. When you go to the calendar, click on the event, then click on "more details". This will take you to another version of the calendar. Click on "Join Hangouts Meet". Please mute your microphone when you sign on. Use chat to ask questions or let me know that you need to say something.

Science Assignments in 5th Grade Work Packet

Properties of Matter Choice Board

Choose 3 of the activities to complete. Your choices should make a tic-tac-toe (be in a straight line). If you choose the FREE Space, you will need to email me your idea and get approval. These activities will help you review Properties of Matter (Solid, Liquid, Gas).


Ecosystem Reading Selections

Also, included in your packet are 4 reading selections with comprehension questions on the back. Each selection is a little introduction to an ecosystem topic we will learn more about later.


Dichotomous Key

Please hold onto this paper for a future lesson.


If this situation continues, future lessons will be delivered through Google Classroom.


Take Care. Stay Safe.

I hope to see you soon!

I miss you!
