Current Unit: 

Sixth graders are working on using the Scientific Method to design and conduct experiments.  They will be identifying variables, writing testable questions, and predicting hypotheses.  Students will work in teams to customize their project and collect data. Collaboratively they will problem solve to create a fair test and present it to the class on a trifold presentation board.  

Water Availability letters from the Water Unit will be sent to Senator Bennet this week.  It is expected that we will receive a letter of response from Washington DC.

Evaluating data tables and graphs for trends and using the information in Claim Evidence Reasoning writing.

Creating, developing and using models to predict.
