In 5th grade at West Hardin, we strive to provide our students with a safe and welcoming learning environment. At West Hardin, every student is encouraged to succeed both academically and socially through positive opportunities and extracurricular activities. As the oldest peers in our school, we also expect them to be leading examples for their younger peers who look up to them. Soon, they will embark on a new territory as they transition to Hardin County Middle School. During 5th grade, we will not only test the foundation of their academics from the previous years, but we will challenge them to become focused and ready for the next level.
Our 5th graders learn to place value to thousandths and multiplication and division of fractions and whole numbers. They will find the volume of rectangular prisms, graph points on coordinate grids, convert measurements from customary/metric, and sort and categorize 2D figures.
