6th grade science is primarily life science. Here are our units of study:
- What is science?
- Biomedical engineering
Our SEPUP textbook is not a traditional science textbook. Rather, it is a collection of procedures for HOW do the work in class. Students should use their binder with notes and classwork to help them study for tests or complete homework. If a student is absent, or needs access to the textbook outside of class, they can come in during an ELT access day or most things will be available on the homework at a glance page.
SEPUP Website Links to activity supplements, videos, etc. from our Science book.
Scientific American Science Activities Check out the Scientific American website, they post cool science activities that you can check out at home.
BrainPop Games Link to videos and games through BrainPop.
Science News for Students Science news articles for students.
The math textbook should be brought home each night for homework and brought back to school the next day for in class work.
If you are worried about your student carrying their book back and forth you can purchase an e-book license.
Parents may purchase a one-year eBook license of their student's book for $10 through CPMs e-Commerce website.
If you choose not to buy the e-book, there are still many resources on the CPM website.
