Welcome to Sixth Grade Science!

Science is all around you!  I am excited to begin a new semester with young scientists.  I would like to take the opportunity to share with you what we will be studying this semester.  We have a lot to cover in a semester’s time!

Students in sixth grade science will learn introductory concepts for the three main branches of science: Physical Science, Earth Science, and Life Science.  The sixth grade program is a process oriented, performance based, approach to science which encourages the ability to think critically, to solve problems creatively, and to demonstrate an understanding of basic science concepts.
