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:
1 marble composition notebook
1 plastic folder (sturdy)
Glue stick and/or Scotch tape
Supply box, case or bag (so the above materials can be brought to class each day)
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%
- Classwork & Activities: 35%
- Groupwork Requisites, Journal Responses, Notebook Requirements: 20%
- DO NOWS/Class Preparation: 10%
