Sixth Grade Science.....
Science should be something that is hands on and interesting. My goal is to get my students interested and yes maybe even excited about SCIENCE.
Throughout the year we will be focusing on asking, "why" and then looking for answers.
In 6th grade science we will be covering topics such as:
Homework and Classwork:
We will have some homework in science, however the majority of the work will be done in class.
Tests and Quizzes:
I try and give some sort of assessment every week. This might be as small as a 5 word vocabulary quiz or as large as a unit test. Before we have a test I give a study sheet to the students. I also communicate through "remind" and those on my email list that we have a major test coming up.
In science my grades are based on a point system. Each assignment is worth a certain number of points.
100% - 90% = A
89% - 80% = B
79% - 70% = C
69% - 60% = D
59% - 0% = F
I do give extra points to any student that watches a science documentary and fills out my extra points form. A student may only do 2 extra point documentaries a semester.
