Our 5th grade is departmentalized into 3 homeroom classes (90min each). I'm supposed to teach science for 60minutes and social studies for 30min. Our focus is science since it is state tested in 5th grade. I try to do 60min of science and 30min of social studies each day but it never seems to work out. I usually run out of time for S.S. or try to do it for only 30minutes and run over into my science block. I was thinking this year to just have a certain day of the week where I do social studies. For example; every Thursday I teach social studies. I know the minutes will technically not be as much as we're supposed to give but I think it might work out better. Thoughts?
