    Does anyone have anything for 5th grade Ohio Science? I am completely lost with what to do. Should I do Space Science first?

    Normally, it doesn't matter what unit you start with - just as long as you complete all of the standards included. Sometimes topics will fit better at certain times of the year (I like doing plants during the spring time, for example).

    I start with what makes sense to you, what is easiest for you to plan right now. or what ties in with other subject areas. For example, I'm starting my grade 7s with our unit on "Interactions Within Ecosystems" because it ties in perfectly with what they will be studying in Geography and the weather will be perfect for some of the outdoor investigations we will be doing.

    Wow, no district pacing calendar? We have assessments every 9 weeks so we have to follow the YAG calendar to teach what will be tested at the end of the 9 week period.

    Are you aligned to NGSS? I can share what our 5th grade does and some resources I have used (4th but still relevant!)
