Class Description:

Science 6 -Increase your appreciation of God’s wonderful creation through a study of various concepts about earth science, life science, physical science, and the human body in Science 6. Learn about new and current technology being developed that utilizes and benefits from science. Explore earthquakes and volcanoes, weathering and erosion, natural resources, and astronomy while learning about the earth and space. Life science topics include cells and classification systems as well as reproduction and genetics. While studying physical science, investigate atoms and molecules, electricity and magnetism, and motion and machines. Discover the wonders of the human body as you study the nervous and immune systems. Your student will enrich his critical thinking skills through the hands-on activities and the use of diagrams, charts, and visuals.

In class, we will do approximately half lecture/discussion and half experiments, investigations, and hands-on activities.

I will also emphasize the scientific method, good lab procedures, and organizational skills.

 

Homework:Out of class will be mostly reading the chapters and assigned exercises in the workbook, plus occasionally a small project to do at home.
Evaluation:Grades are made up of class participation, daily work, homework, binder organization, extra credit activities, and chapter quizzes. A "Progress Report" will also be sent home each semester as well as an end of the year cumulative grade.
