Welcome to 6th grade Science! I want to welcome all of you to my classroom. This promises to be an exciting year for you and I. There are many exciting, fun, strange, and important things that we are going to learn this year! Science is an important subject and it impacts all of us daily. I will also be preparing you for success in your future science classes by establishing some important basic facts. But most of all, science is interesting! Science will explain how natural phenomena works, why certain things happen in nature, and how science functions and progresses. We will explore several different branches of science this year: Physical Science, Life Science, and Earth Science. You are going to learn how to think and act like a scientist. We will learn science content and practice science processes skills through engaging laboratory work, classroom discussions and independent study. I know it seems like a lot, but with our shared commitment to learning, we will achieve our learning goals.
