WHAT WE LEARN IN MIDDLE SCHOOL SCIENCE

 6th Grade Science (175 Minimum Weekly Minutes)
Earth Science
•  Understands the effect of the ecology of the Earth and their responsibility to protect it
•  Understands plate tectonics to explain important features of the Earth’s surface and major geologic events
•  Knows that topography is reshaped by weathering of rock and soil and by the transportation and deposition of sediment
•  Understands that heat moves in a predictable flow from warmer objects-to-cooler objects until all objects are at the same temperature
•  Understands that many phenomena on the Earth’s surface are affected by the transfer of heat energy through radiation and convection currents
•  Identifies how organisms in ecosystems exchange energy and nutrients among themselves and with the environment 
Investigation and Experimentation
•  Hypothesizes, classifies, and interprets data found from investigation and discovery experiments
•  Draws conclusions using study information based on scientific information
•  Compares, analyzes, and synthesizes data results using metacognitive skills and scientific fact
•  Selects topic, problem, and hypothesis for a Science Fair project
