Kimball Classroom of the week: Mrs. Niemi's 5th Grade

In fifth grade, the students learn many new things while continuing to build on what they've already learned. We have a new science curriculum that consists of soil, rocks, and landforms; motion, force, and models; and environments. In social studies, they learn about U.S. history with Mrs. Herrington. They also learn new math concepts, how to become better readers and writers, how to keep their bodies healthy, and continue to develop their study and social skills.
