See you at Mass!

Science: 6th grade studies Earth Science all year.

Students will learn the layers of the Earth, convection currents, Harry Hess and sea-floor spreading, Alfred Wegener and the continental drift. We will then move to tectonic plates.


Layers of the Earth Model and Short Story: Student have a project sheet and rubric for this assignment. The Earth model is to be done at home. I suggested to the students that they work on the model 15 minutes a night. The story will be done is class. The only reason students might have to work on the story at home is if class time is not used wisely. The project is due Friday, December 14.

There will a tasty tectonics activity too.
