Welome to my 6th grade Science Class!
TO SEE THE ASSIGNMENTS YOUR CHILD WILL NEED TO LOG INTO HIS/HER CANVAS ACCOUNT. ONCE LOGGED IN THEY CAN SELECT SCIENCE. IF THEY CLICK ON THE LESSON FOR THAT DAY THERE WILL BE MORE INFORMATION ABOUT WHAT WE DID. MOST ASSIGNMENTS ARE COMPLETED IN AMPLIFY. THEY CAN GET TO CANVAS OR AMPLIFY FROM THEIR LAUNCHPAD. THERE ARE SEVERAL WAYS TO GET TO LAUNCHPAD, BUT ONE IS TO GO TO THE CPSB.ORG WEBSITE, SELECT PARENTS/STUDENTS AT THE TOP, AND THEN SELECT LAUNCHPAD. They can also log into their calendar and it should have a link to what we completed that day. I am trying to load things into Canvas a new way and the kiddos are going to help me decide what works best for them. We will be logging in together on a regular basis, so your child can show you how to navigate the site. Pretend you don't have a clue and let them teach you!!! They love to teach their parents things.
This year we will be studying:
Unit 1: Microbiome -
Unit Assessment will be Tuesday, September 13th. There will be two essay questions, a vocabulary quiz, and they will turn in their booklet. The booklet instructions are included in a link on Canvas so make sure it is up to date. The booklet is a study guide for the quiz! Go through it with your student and have them explain each of the key concepts to you. If they can do that, then they should do fine on the quiz. If they are struggling, they can watch the videos that are loaded in their Canvas.

Unit 3: Matter & Energy in the Ecosystem
Unit 4: Force and Motion
Unit 5: Magnetic Fields
