Science 4-5

 Cherene Fillingim-Selk, 4th-5th Grade Science Teacher

Hello Cragmont Families, I have been teaching science to 4th and 5th graders at Cragmont since 2004 and, boy, has it been fun!!!! I love the variety of science topics I get to teach to such a diverse student body. Everyday is something new. This is where you can learn about what we are doing in our science classes. For weekly information about science class, please subscribe to my blog. The highlight of the school year is the annual Science Fair in May. If you want to reach me, please email me at
