Overview of Science Five Lessons

Science 5 continues on concepts related to the biological and physical world. An interaction to the cell concept and how cells are organized into tissues, organs, and organ system open the discussion to the biological world. Detailed discussions on the structures and functions of the human respiratory, excretory, and reproductive system follow. Diseases of each system and measures of preventing such diseases are also discussed. A comprehensive survey and simple classification of animals and plants are presented for pupils to appreciate biodiversity. Plant and animal characteristics and adaptations are highlighted. Photosynthesis completes the discussions on plants. The ecological significance of plants and animals are also emphasized.

The discussion on the physical world opens with concepts on matter and energy. Discussions on matter focus on physical and chemical changes while discussions on energy cover electricity, electromagnets, and simple machines. The study of geology, meteorology, and astronomy completes the discussion on the physical world. Emphasis is also given on the interplay of the different biological and physical concepts and how they affect our lives.
