5th and 6th grade science in CA

I have taught 5th grade science and I enjoy it thoroughly! I only had access to Measure Up Science and and older edition of Houghton Mifflin Discover Works, but I also supplemented our text books with a lot of hands on projects.

Now, I'm at a new school and in charge of helping choose our next science text books. I'm looking for 5th grade and 6th grade science text books (combo class). 5th grade is tested on the CSTs and includes 4th grade standards.

Any textbooks that you all have used and like? I will be supplementing with projected based learning curriculum as well. Thanks!

I am in the central coast of CA and we use CA Science for K-6, and I am in fifth. I have a copy of the fourth and fifth grade science books so that we can properly prepare for the science test in fifth grade, since fourth often drops the ball in the science department in the sake of the writing test... I actually enjoy this program and I believe that it is pretty comprehensive! Here is a website for the fifth grade information so that you can get an idea:

Hope this helps!
