Here's what I did with 6th grade. I can't find 5th grade right now but I
know I did something similar with some variations in media.
I know how much it helps to have a framework just to get yourself going.
Then you can adapt it to your own. Have a great year!

Week 9 Review week
We do something fun like edible color wheels and then we study for a test
over Elements of Art and the things we have learned.
I usually have them take notes for a study sheet. I give them every
question that I am going to ask but make a BIG deal of how hard it will be
and how hard they need to study Sometimes I surprise them and give the test
orally on Friday and everybody who can answer one question correctly gets an
A
