Welcome to 6th Grade Science!
Each day in Room 225, we will spend one hour as SCIENTISTS!
Your day will always begin with a Question of the Day (QOD). It will be followed with adding information into your planners (homework, upcoming activities, materials to bring to the next class, or other reminders). Next, we will jump into our science content for the day!
We will begin this year by becoming meteorologists. We will learn how to use weather tools, and learning on a molecular level what happens as temperature changes. Prepare to have your mind expanded! In the second half of the year, we will be evaluating what it means to be living. We will be using microscopes to explore things so small that we cannot see them with our eyes alone! This year we will learn about why we have the seasons, what cells are and what they are made of, learn about seeds, plants, the scientific method, about the atmosphere… and the list goes on and on. I teach with LOTS of labs and we will do so many experiments, you will not be able to count them all. What you WILL be able to do is retain the information we learn, use it in valuable ways, and achieve your goals all year long.
I promise this year will be a BLAST… but I will require a lot from you. I need you to do your best each day so that we can learn as much as possible during our time together. Get ready for the adventure of a lifetime (or at least your 6th grade year).
Oh, and don't forget... our 6th grade science field trip to Camp Surf (located in California) in May!Your Teacher,Mrs. Rhoades
