Welcome to 6th Grade Earth Science!
Final: Semester 1 final will be an in class activity. Students do not have a study guide. They will use their learning from Unit II to complete the activity.
Homework: Science does not generally give homework, but students must study their vocabualry and outcomes to master new content. Homework may be necessary to complete classwork that was not finished.
Tests and quizzes may be retaken. Students need to complete a retake form, study and review notes and get a parent signature. Retakes must be completed within two weeks of the test/quiz unless otherwise prearranged. Evidence of additional study is required to retake a test.
All assignments and assessments may be redone for a better grade with evidence of additional study.
Grading will be weighted as follows:
Labs and projects: 15%
Unit Tests: 50%
