RI 6, RL 2, RI 7, RL 6, RI 9, RL 7 -Fiction & Non-Fiction/Informative Reading

Writing:

W1, SL 5 - Argumenative Writing

Science:

6.L2U1.13 - Develop and use models to demonstrate the interdependence of organisms and their environment including biotic and abiotic factors.

6.L2U1.14 - Construct a model that shows the cycling of matter and flow of energy in ecosystems.

6.L2U3.12 - Engage in argument from evidence to support a claim about the factors that cause species to change and how humans can impact those factors.

6.L2U3.11 - Use evidence to construct an argument regarding the impact of human activities on the environment and how they positively and negatively affect the competition for energy and resources in ecosystems.

6.E1U1.6 - Investigate and construct an explanation demonstrating that radiation from the Sun provides energy and is absorbed to warm the Earth’s surface and atmosphere.

Math:

6.EE.A.2 - Write, read, and evaluate algebraic expressions.

6.EE.B.7 - Solve mathematical problems and problems in real-world context by writing and solving equations of the form x + p = q, x - p = q, px = q, and x/p = q for cases in which p, q and x are all non-negative rational numbers.

6.EE.C.9 - Use variables to represent two quantities that change in relationship to one another to solve mathematical problems and problems in real-world context. Write an equation to express one quantity (the dependent variable) in terms of the other quantity (the independent variable). Analyze the relationship between the dependent and independent variables using graphs and tables, and relate these to the equation.

6.RP.A.3.b - b. Solve unit rate problems including those involving unit pricing and constant speed.

6.RP.A.3.c - c. Find a percent of a quantity as a rate per 100 (e.g., 30% of a quantity means 30/100 times the quantity). Solve percent problems with the unknown in all positions of the equation.

6.NS.C.7 - Understand ordering and absolute value of rational numbers.

6.NS.C.8 - Solve mathematical problems and problems in real-world context by graphing points in all four quadrants of the coordinate plane. Include use of coordinates and absolute value to find distances between points with the same first coordinate or the same second coordinate.

6.EE.A.2.b - b.Identify parts of an expression using mathematical terms (sum, term, product, factor, quotient, and coefficient); view one or more parts of an expression as a single entity.

Social Studies

6.C4.2 Describe and apply civic virtues including deliberative processes that contribute to the common good and democratic principles in school, community, and government.

6.E5.1 Describe the factors that influence trade between countries or cultures.

6.G1.1 Use and construct maps, graphs, and other representations to explain relationships between locations of places and regions.

6.G4.2 Describe how natural and human-made catastrophic events and economic activities in one place affect people living in nearby and distant places.

6.H1.1 Compare the development and characteristics of historical cultures and civilizations from different global regions within designated time periods

6.H2.1 Evaluate the causes and effects of conflict and resolution among different societies and cultures.

6.H3.1 Analyze the impact of religious, government, and civic groups over time.

6.H3.3 Explain why communities, states, and nations have different motivations for their choices including individual rights, freedoms, and responsibilities.
