SIXTH GRADE SCIENCE
We will begin the year with a study of the Earth, Moon and Sun. Students will observe their shadow at different times of the day and look for the pattern of its change. Students will also make a model to explain why the Sun "appears" to rise and set each day. The relative sizes of the Moon, Earth and Sun will also be investigated as well as the distances between them. The cause for the seasons and tides will be investigated in addition to solar and lunar eclipses.
The assignments for the week will be posted on PowerSchool. Please keep in mind that the assignments that I post are based on my plans for the week. Plans are subject to change, and therefore the dates that assignments are due may change. Your child’s assignment book should be the most accurate location for assignments and due dates. The assignments are listed ahead of time on PowerSchool so that you can get an idea of what we are doing.
