Welcome to 6th Grade Science
SCIENCE IS IMPORTANT AND INTEGRAL PART OF LEARNING
Welcome !!! Back. It is my pleasure to introduce myself as
Vandna Guleria and this is my second year teaching Science at St. Mary's. It is crucial for kids to start developing their thought process early on towards carving out their future careers in the field of science. I will put all my effort in making this subject interesting and so that they will enjoy learning.
This year we are having an amazing group of kids and I have high hopes that they will be doing well in this academic year. My agenda is to thoroughly teach them in class and assign minimum homework. In addition, they just have to spend 20-30 minutes a day towards revision; once they reach home.
There are certain things which I would like to give a heads on for the students 1) Students are expected to participate in daily class activities, complete class work reports or other projects on time 2) There will be a test after completion of each chapter 3) The homework assignments should be completed on time or 5 points will be deducted per day for late submission.
Oral participation/activities 25%
Homework/Class work 25%
Class Test 50%
All scores on exams. and assignments will be based on 100 points.
Things required for class:
1) Science text book (will be allocated to students and should be returned at the end of the school session).
2) Science binder.
3) Stationary as per required (pencils, pens, erasers, calculators, etc.).
Study Plan: This week (March 20, 2017) we will start our new chapter (Chapter 21: Family of planets). The study material that we will be covering during this week is as follows:
Monday/ Tuesday: Students will learn about Kepler's laws of planetary motion (section IV). Also, students will be working on their presentation (planets) by using chrome books.
Wednesday: Students will be presenting their presentations.
Thursday: Students will review chapter 20 (Formation of solar system).
Friday: Students will have a test on chapter 20.
