Welcome to Sixth Grade


Sixth Grade Science Syllabus

Sixth grade brings many exciting lessons and changes for your children.  They will be switching classes and learning how to be organized as they move to different rooms.  This year, science will be a daily part of their lessons and I am excited to work with your children as we study Earth and Space!


Note taking
Sixth graders will be learning how to read non-fiction text.  We will focus on using headings and text structure to find main ideas and make connections when statements are worded differently in a textbook than how they are worded in another format.  
Students will learn study skills that will help them be successful in all content areas.  Note-taking strategies like Cornell Notes, outlining, sketch notes and doodle mapping will be taught.  Pre-made handouts will be given to students as guides while learning these note taking strategies.  As the year progresses,  handouts will be less structured and students will be encouraged to choose the note-taking method that works best for them but science notebooks will be periodically assessed for organization and structure.   

Chapter 8 Earth Dynamics

 This chapter will be a continuation of plate tectonics.  Students will build their knowledge of plate movements and learn how those movements change the appearance of Earth's surface.  The main skills for this chapter will be to find factual evidence in a non-fiction text,  to group information based on given categories and use the information to answer questions.
