Welcome to 6th Grade Earth Science! We have an exciting year ahead!!
It is suggested that your student have 1 composition notebook and colored pencils for science class.
We have 4 units this year:
1. Earth Systems
2. History of Earth: Geology
3. Weather, Climate and the Atmosphere
Homework: Science does not generally give homework, but students must study and learn the new vocabualry and unit outcomes to master new content. Homework may be necessary to complete classwork that was not finished.
Tests and quizzes may be retaken. We will have three quizes and a final for each unit. Students may retake quizes and tests, but 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.
Grading will be weighted as follows:
Labs and projects: 15%
Unit Tests: 50%
