Science 6

Course Overview

Unit 1: Biology

Eww! Gross! This unit is sure to be a favorite for students as we explore our amazingly designed human bodies and discuss why ‘gross’ isn’t gross, but is totally natural and expected! Students will compile reports, interview adults, write speeches, draw comic strips and in the end, compile a book entitled ‘A Teen’s Guide to the Gross and Glorious Human Body’.

Unit 2: Physics

The laws have changed – it’s no longer a requirement for adults to wear seatbelts, but is this the right choice? We’ll explore Newton’s Three laws of Physics, and apply them to the idea of cars and seatbelts to determine if it’s a wise choice to wear or not wear a seatbelt. In the end, students will become an activist for their choice and should be able to defend their choices based on the labs, results and information they’ve learned through the module.

Unit 3: Chemistry

Do we have any food lovers? Whether you are or you aren’t, we all need food to survive, and even better if it tastes good! Students will apply their Chemistry learning to create a cookbook called, Mix-It-Up – Cooking with Chemistry, involving both homogeneous and heterogeneous mixtures, as well as separated mixtures. Maybe by the end of this module students will be able to cook dinner?

Unit 4: Earth Science

Come explore our universe, created and held in the palm of God’s hand.  Students will enjoy journeying throughout this vast space. With a focus on the Milky Way and its parts, this unit starts off with an extreme environment on Earth that bridges the gap between Earth and Space. We then move beyond Earth to explore the planets and other components of the Universe. Along the way students will be creating a Survival Guide which will help anyone know what is needed to survive in these different extremes, or if it is even possible!
