Science Classes for 4th 5th Grade
Exsciton Geniuses Courses

We will conduct 60 minutes session every week depending upon the Session you choose. Please check the Schedule Tab to see all the session options that you have. You can select the session that suits your schedule. The 60-minute session is divided into theory followed by a hands-on experiment. Lessons are conducted in a live instructor-led learning environment, with abundant opportunities to explore and interact with their peers. For Fall 20202, classes will start from August 27th and will run through December 17th. There will be total 16 sessions for the Fall Semester and we will cover topics which align with NGSS standard for the grade level. For a detail of the topics, please click on the Lessons Tab. All Sessions are conducted in-person and limited to 6 students only.

Lesson Plans NGSS Standard Standard Description
Engineering Design Process 5.3-5-ETS3-2(MA) Use sketches or drawings to show how each part of a product or device relates to other parts in the product or device.
Conservation of Matter 5-PS1-2 Measure and graph the weights (masses) of substances before and after a reaction or phase change to provide evidence that regardless of the type of change that occurs when heating, cooling, or combining substances, the total weight (mass) of matter is conserved.
Food Webs 5-LS2-2(MA) Compare at least two designs for a composter to determine which is most likely to encourage decomposition of materials.
Particle Nature of Matter 5-PS1-1 Use a particle model of matter to explain common phenomena involving gases, and phase changes between gas and liquid and between liquid and solid.
Properties of Matter 5-PS1-3 Make observations and measurements of substances to describe characteristic properties of each, including color, hardness, reflectivity, electrical conductivity, thermal conductivity, response to magnetic forces, and solubility.
Renewable vs. Nonrenewable Resources 5.3-5-ETS3-1(MA) Evaluate relevant design features that must be considered in building a model or prototype of a solution to a given design problem.
Sun and Other Stars 5-ESS1-1 Use observations, first-hand and from various media, to argue that the Sun is a star that appears larger and brighter than other stars because it is closer to Earth.
Water Cycle (3-5 Version) 5-ESS2-1 Use a model to describe the cycling of water through a watershed through evaporation, precipitation, absorption, surface runoff, and condensation.
Water Quality & Distribution 5-ESS3-2(MA) Test a simple system designed to filter particulates out of water and propose one change to the design to improve it.
Solar & Lunar Eclipses 6.MS-ESS1-1a Develop and use a model of the Earth-Sun-Moon system to explain the causes of lunar phases and eclipses of the Sun and Moon.
Rock Layers (Geologic Time) 6.MS-ESS1-4 Analyze and interpret rock layers and index fossils to determine the relative ages of rock formations that result from processes occurring over long periods of time.
The Solar System 6.MS-ESS1-5(MA) Use graphical displays to illustrate that Earth and its solar system are one of many in of the Milky Way galaxy, which is one of billions of galaxies in the universe.
Gravitational Forces Between Objects 6.MS-PS2-4 Use evidence to support the claim that gravitational forces between objects are attractive and are only noticeable when one or both of the objects have a very large mass.
Wave Reflection 6.MS-PS4-1 Absorption & Transmittance,Use diagrams of a simple wave to explain that (a) a wave has a repeating pattern with a specific amplitude, frequency, and wavelength, and (b) the amplitude of a wave is related to the energy of the wave.
Heat: Transfer of Thermal Energy 6.MS-PS1-6 Plan and conduct an experiment involving exothermic and endothermic chemical reactions to measure and describe the release or absorption of thermal energy.
The Fossil Record 6.MS-LS4-1 Analyze and interpret evidence from the fossil record to describe organisms and their environment, extinctions, and changes to life forms throughout the history of Earth.
Comparative Anatomy 6.MS-LS4-2 Construct an argument using anatomical structures to support evolutionary relationships among and between fossil organisms and modern organisms.
Plant & Animal Cells 6.MS-LS1-2 Develop and use a model to describe how parts of cells contribute to the cellular functions of obtaining food, water, and other nutrients from its environment, disposing of wastes, and providing energy for cellular processes.
Multicellular Organisms 6.MS-LS1-3 Construct an argument supported by evidence that the body systems interact to carry out essential functions of life.
