Monday:

Cells
We will use the Cells and Cells Function app on the ipad to research and learn about different cells

Week 34. Only 4 More weeks left! :)

May2

Hello Parents and Students,

I cannot believe we are so close to the end, time is going by so fast!
We are rapidly finishing up the year and all the content we need to learn in 6th grade.
We will finish Plate Tectonics on Monday, then we will be starting our Biology Unit.
On Tuesday (not sure which class yet) but the 7th grade GT students are going to come in and talk to the class about cells. That should be a real treat.

Objectives
6.12 A,B,D

Students will learn about the cell theory, and how to use a microscope to determine that organisms are composed of cells. Additionally, they will compare and contrast basic characteristics that are used to classify organisms into the broadest taxonomic categories of Domains and Kingdoms.

Monday:
Name that Plate and Plate movements.

Tuesday/Wednesday
Plate Tectonics Quiz

*Using the Microscope and Start Cells

Thursday / Friday

Characteristics of living things
Sexual and Asexual Reproduction

Week 33!

April25

Hello Parents and Students,

5 more weeks!!

We are finishing up the Rock cycle this week, and then moving on to Plate Tectonics.
We are moving fast through next units to make sure that we fit it all in!
The band is going on their trip Thursday!

Objective 6.10 C 6.10 D
During this lesson, students will locate and identify the major tectonic plates on a world map. They will describe how the different types of plate movements are responsible for geological events such as ocean basins, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and mountain building.

Monday:

Rock Cycle Review
Quiz

Tuesday/Wednesday

Jig-saw — Students will construct a puzzle without seeing the big picture
Theories and Plates- Go through the difference between a theory and law

Objective: 6.10 B
Students will classify igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic rocks based on the processes of their formation. They will develop an understanding of the multiple pathways of the rock cycle.

Monday

Metamorphic and Igneous rocks
Rock Cycle

Tuesday/Wednesday

STAAR TEST

Week 31! Last Six Weeks!

April11

Cannot believe we are already in the last six week! This will be a crazy end of the year, we have so much to cover. Not to mention we have STAAR test and Finals! Keep working hard, we are almost there!

Just want to say GREAT job your projects, yall did so well! I know it can be hard to work in groups, but I am impressed with how you came together and got it done! I want to send some games into a game company. They were so much fun! I will post pictures another day.

We are going to moving rather quickly these next couple of weeks. We will start out talking about Earths Interior, and then move on to Rocks, and the Rock cycle.

Objective:

6.10 A
Students will build a model of the structural layers of the Earth including the inner core, outer core, mantle, crust, asthenosphere, and lithosphere. They will also study of the characteristics of each layer.
6.10 B
Students will classify igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic rocks based on the processes of their formation. They will develop an understanding of the multiple pathways of the rock cycle.

Monday/Tuesday

-A slice of planet Earth. Students will create a scale model of Earths Interior

Wednesday/Thursday

Rocks and How they are formed

Good Friday-
