Welcome to 6th Grade Science!

We have an exciting year ahead learning about a variety of science topics! 

This will be the first year introducing the updated Massachusetts State Frameworks for Science and Engineering and there have been a few changes from last year's topics. Starting in 2016, 6th grade topics will now start with an introduction to Astronomy, "Earth's Place in the Universe" and focus on the relationship among the Earth, Sun and Moon. The next units "Changes on Earth's Surface and Conditions on Earth's surface" will include processes involved in plate tectonics over time how it affects the surface of our planet. Last but not least, our final unit will serve as an introduction to biology learning about life and cells in the unit called, "Structure of Life on Earth"

Please see the Curriculum Tab on the left to learn more about each unit and read the standards that will be covered.
