Science Grade 6

 During Science your child will create presentations using iPad technology, engage in scientific discussions, and complete experiments or projects to enhance their learning.

Students start with a review on science safety in the classroom and a refresher on using the scientific process.

During the month of September our focus is on Gregor Mendel and his discovery of trait inheritance from parent to offspring using pea plants. Students will create Punnett Squares and determine probability.

In October we will take a deeper look at inheritance with Walter Sutton and his Chromosome theory of inheritance while learning about genetic disorders and creating pedigrees.

 In November we  will study Darwin and his discoveries of variations among species while on the Galapagos Islands.

In September students begin by reviewing the classification system and learning how to use a dichotomous key. 

In October students learn about inherited behaviors vs. learned behaviors among animals and then focus on physical and behavioral adaptations and environment.
