Sixth Grade Science

Welcome to science!  In sixth grade, we investigate a 'smattering' of topics from many different fields of science--chemistry, physics, biology, and environmental science.  We try to inspire students to observe the world around them and ask questions and design experiments to discover more about it.
 
For science class, students will need:
     --a composition book;
     --a three-ring binder;
     --subject dividers
 
Each class will have its own Google Classroom where information and assignments will be posted.  Students will be able to access the classroom through a code that will be given to them.
 
Science grades are broken down into the following categories:
  • Formal Assessments (CER-M statements, posters, presentations): 35%
  • Groupwork/Journal Responses: 35%
  • Classwork: 20%
  • DO NOW'S/Class Preparation: 10%
 
For homework assignments and more specific information, visit the Google Classroom page!

Complete your CER-M statement (in your notebook), if not completed in class. (Claim: What level of the Energy Pyramid has the most energy? Write a simple sentence that states your thoughts. Evidence: What did we do to gather data for the exploration? What is our actual data? Remember, this is the ‘meat’ of your statement. Reasoning: Explain WHY the energy level you selected has the most energy. Use what you know scientifically to help explain your claim. Model: Make a model that shows how energy flows through an ecosystem. Be sure your model can show what level has the most energy and which level has the least.)

Thursday, October 12, 2017:  Cores 1 & 2--complete 'EcoPizza' (be sure to color your pizza in!)
Core 3: Select an organism. Search to find out what other animals and plants live near it, as well as what non-living things can be found in the same place as the organism.  Record the information in your notebook.

Welcome to Bordentown Regional Middle School and to science class!  I am excited to work with this year's youth!
 
This will be the start of my 14th year here in the middle school and I am greatly looking forward to implementing the NGSS in my classroom!  Such an exciting time to be learning science!
