Welcome to 6th grade Science! This year will be one of both learning and fun, as we explore the many facets of Science. Throughout the year, I hope to provide a positive and safe learning environment. This can only be accomplished with your help. Our goal is to have both personal and academic growth.
The content area of science is the tool being used to help you develop and improve your life skills. The demands that I place on you, as people and students, will help you grow in the areas of responsibility, balancing, priortizing, dealing with stress, dealing with success and failure, communicating and interacting in a positive manner. These are skills that we all need to succeed in the world.
1. NOTEBOOK: It is preferable that students use a composition book (the small ones, with a "marbled" cover). Pages should not be easily torn out. Students are not issued textbooks, so their notebook is their "textbook"/study guide/resource. Resources students will need access to at home are internet, dictionaries, encyclopedia, etc.
2. ASSIGNMENTS: All assignments will be headed in the following manner: First and Last Name, Date, Class period!
