Welcome Sixth Graders:
This year we will be covering a wide variety of interesting subjects that will help build strong science foundations. The emphasis will be on creating an atomosphere where inquiring thinking and the scientific process are utilized.
We will begin the year with "Becoming a Scientist" unit. This unit involves students conducting field and laboratory investigations using scientific methods, analyzing data, making informed decisions, and using tools such as beakers, test tubes, and spring scales to collect, analyze, and record information. Students also use computers and information technology tools to support scientific investigations. Just as Nancy Drew or Sherlock Holmes solves a mystery, we will be using problem solving skills to understand how the world works around us.
Additional units throughout the year will include earth and space, physical and life science.
