Welcome to 6th Grade Science!!!!
My goal is to inspire higher level thinking as students learn scientific facts and discoveries. I want to develop students who wonder why things happen, how they affect other things, and learn to problem solve on how we can improve upon what we already have. I aim to do this in a number of different ways:
- Our Textbook - Our new textbook has been written to help students learn to make comparisons, see how all parts of the Earth interact, and to problem solve. We do have an online textbook that students can access at home. Students have the same login for their science textbook as they have for their math textbook.
- STEM Activities- STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math.
- Interactive Science notebooks - In student notebooks, students will keep notes, vocabulary, diagrams, and other learning devices. I try to use a number of different techniques to relate to our many different types of learners.
I'm very excited about this school year and look forward to a great year!!
