Sixth Grade News for March!

Language Arts:

Readers will explore different online and print resources to help them in their research projects.  They will form questions to explore different areas of the American Revolution and create a Museum Exhibit.  We will meet with ongoing Guided Reading groups to remediate and enrich our units of study.  

Math:

6th Grade Math - We are working on identifying and graphing the components of a coordinate plane, determining congruence of shapes, and determining the proportional relationships between two quantities. 

Advanced Math – We are finishing and testing on our Geometry Unit.  Then we will be reviewing and extending our knowledge of theoretical and experimental probability in the next unit.

Science:

The General Education classes are cycling through one of these three units: Investigating and describing the properties of water in all three phases, Investigating different kinds of energy, and Investigating patterns of weather including weather fronts and cloud formations as well as learning about different weather tools.

The AAP classes are still working on the first of those units.

Social Studies:

We will finish our American Revolution Unit which focused on explaining issues of dissatisfaction that led to the American Revolution as well as describing key events and individuals in the revolution, along with the why the colonies were able to defeat Great Britain.  We will then begin our Constitution Unit.
