6th Grade Science

Week 9!

October24

Hello parents and students,

We are off to a good start for the 2nd nine weeks! We will be continuing our study over Elements, Compounds, and evidence of change.
I will be out Monday

Objective: 6.5C,D
Students will differentiate common compounds by name and symbol. They will recognize that the formation of a new substance may be identified using the evidence of a possible chemical change, such as production of a gas, change in temperature, production of a precipitate, or a change in color.

Monday- Quiz – Elements, Compounds, and Mixtures

Objective: Students will learn that an element is a pure substance represented by chemical symbols. They will identify elements that comprise the Earth, living things, oceans, and atmosphere.

Monday:
Building Blocks of Matter
Tic Tac Elements
Possible homework if not finished in class- Due Wednesday

Tuesday/Wednesday
What is an Element?
Abundance of Elements

**Study for your Test (Composition Book)

Thursday/Friday

Week 5 Sept. 22-26

September21

Hello Parents and Students,

Hope you had a wonderful weekend. This week we will be starting physical properties of minerals. Minerals have many of the same properties as elements, so we will comparing the two to see their similarities and differences. I will be out Friday of this week.

Students will compare minerals using physical properties. Students will test the streak, color, hardness, cleavage, and fracture.

Monday(white)/Tuesday

Mineral Properties
Review Quiz grades
Update vocabulary

Wednesday/Thursday

Hello Parents and Students,

Time is already flying by! Last week we started learning some new concepts, and this week we will be diving into density and hopefully be able to talk about minerals on Friday. We are probably about two weeks away from our first unit test.

Objective: Students will Calculate density of a regular, measurable solid and the density of an irregular shaped solid (volume by displacement). Students will compare minerals using physical properties, such as streak, color, hardness, cleavage, and fracture.

Monday/Tuesday: Calculating Density Cont.
Triple Beam Balance and graduated cylinder practice
Density homework.

****Study Element symbols, physical properties of metals, non-metals, metalloids, and density
