Reading Skills / Novels (provided by district)
Over the course of the year, students will learn about ancient civilizations. We will look at the first humans, followed by why humans settled in certain areas such as
Mesopotamia and Egypt. Followed by more developed civilizations like Greece and Rome.
Text: The classroom text will remain in the class.
In grade 6, students' recall of their basic multiplication facts will provide a solid foundation for learning higher level concepts, such as division of whole numbers and working with ratios. We'll be working quite a bit with word problems and various strategies with which to solve them.
Over the course of the year, students will learn out about Science Practices, Earth's Place in the Universe, The Fossil Story, Cell Structures and Functions, Human Body Systems and Interactions, Matter and Interactions, and Waves.
Textbooks: textbooks will remain in school. Students will need to use their Science notebooks and folder to complete all assignments and to prepare for assessments.
