What we are doing in 6th grade...

We are now into our third major unit of the year:  biology.  In this unit, students learn about the various organelles found within various cells.  They also discover the difference between plant and animal cells.  Students then learn how cells make up all living things and how the bodies of living things are organized.  They study the different life processes that all living things carry out in.  Students do many labs looking at specimens under microscopes and students will see cells and organ systems up close during the frog dissection.  You can help your child by looking at a variety of living things and talk about the life processes that we all do.
