Welcome to Sixth Grade Science!The curriculum focuses on Earth in Space Science and Catastrophic Events. First semester we will cover catastrophic events such as tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes, and volcanoes. Second semester will include why we have seasons, sun, moon phases, planets, space program, and other interesting information. We will also discuss oceans and biomes.We will use the AMSTI inquiry-based science modules. The modules are based on the principle that students become motivated and learn best when they have first-hand experiences with scientific phenomena. Students will also have note-taking experiences and tips on study skills.
