6th Grade Science - Mrs. Brandel



Welcome to Sixth Grade Science!

It's hard to believe we are three weeks into school and ready to have our first test next Wednesday, 9/27 on Ch. 1 - Classification. We completed the Chapter along with the Ch. 1 Review and Workbook pages 4,4A,5,5A,6,6A AND WE REVIEWED THEM FOR ACCURACY.

We have been growing flowers in the lab and it has been exciting to see roots, stems and leaves growing. We will be putting the plants into soil before the weekend!  

OUR NEXT TOPIC IS CHAPTER 2 - CELLS.

I hope everyone enjoys this year's science class and lab activities!
It has been so nice getting to know all the students!

This year we will be exploring:
*Classification *Building Blocks of Matter
*Cells *Forces & Motion
*Body Systems *Machines
*Plants *Forms of Energy
*Ecosystems
*Plate Tectonics
*Rocks & Minerals
*Weather & Climate

The Fifth and Sixth Grade will be having a Spring Science Fair!

***Students have the benefit of using the Study Guide Workbook In addition
there will be Vocabulary Quizlet games and Study Chapter Reviews including all Key Terms***(at the end of each chapter)

This year the sixth grade will be scaffolding (growing) many of  last year's concepts and also have been putting a main focus on Earth science.

We will be meeting daily and homework will be given on this page. However, it is very important that students also put all assignments in their planners in order to organize the books and supplies they need to take home each day.

There will be a week's notice prior to each test and they will be listed on this page.
There should be no weekend homework other than long-range projects and studying for tests.

There will be extra help for sixth grade on Tuesday mornings beginning at 8:10 A.M.
S.T.E.M. begins next week.
