Sixth Grade Science - School Closure Work

Hello Parents and Scholars!

As most may already know, Ms. Russo is out on maternity leave. I, Ms. Francies, have been with your children this week and I will continue to work with them during the 14-day school closure and beyond until Ms. Russo returns.

Below I've attached all the assignments we'll be working on during these two weeks. If you can, please print the sheets out. If not possible, please have your scholars use their own sheet of paper to answer all questions, write all notes, and/or copy the images on the sheets.

I will be available on Webex for virtual instruction time Monday through Friday between

Thank you,

Ms. Francies

Use this as a guide to what concepts will be covered each unit. Lengths of units will change as needed.

Scientist of the Month

Each month, scholars will research a specified scientist. They will work throughout the month to gather information about the scientist at home. Using the information they find, they will create an informational essay showcasing the Scientist of the Month.

August- Albert Einstein

September- Isaac Newton

October- Marie Curie

Unit 1: Solar System and Beyond

In this unit, scholars will learn about the origins of the universe. They will look at how scientific views of the universe have changed over time. Scholars will dig deep into the creation and composition of the universe. They will look at our galaxy and solar system and compare the structure and composition of other planets to our Earth. Scholars will obtain and evaluate information through various SNAPs labs.

Unit 1 Resources

This is the power point we will use in class. All unit notes and vocabulary will come from. Each week we will cover 2-3 chapters (depending on time). Have scholars review information to stay current with unit topics.
