This week we identified and classified igneous and sedimentary rocks. We made two models of sediment layers and began an experiment to demonstrate the settling of sediment into different layers. Rocks are remarkable!

Memorize Divisibility Rules - Quiz on Monday!!
We made flash cards today in class to help with studying. The quiz will require students to write the rules.
Due to low grades on the Vocab. Quiz this morning, I will not record this as a grade. We will have another Vocab. Quiz next Friday. Daily review of the math vocab. may help.
Have a great weekend!

Our first unit of study covers rocks and how they are formed, the structure of the earth, the building up of the earth and the wearing down of the earth.
We began by exploring soil. What is soil? How is it formed? What is it made of? We currently have an experiment in progress to answer these questions.
This unit will cover several weeks with a variety of projects, activities, and experiments.
Welcome to the world beneath our feet!

Earth Science: Welcome to the adventure!!
Earth Science is filled with the wonder of our marvelous earth and our galaxy, a very exciting field of study. As we explore each Earth Science Unit we will increase our skills of observation, recording information, and organizing information. We will learn about what is under our feet, as well as, what is above our heads. I hope we will be surprised, inspired and appreciative of this wonderful earth.
"Equipped with his five senses, man explores the universe
around him and calls the adventure Science."

Math: 6th Grade
Welcome to 6th Grade Math: Mathematics Applications and Connections
I love Math!! It is a wonderful world of mystery and discovery, patterns and connections. Math is also very constant, so everything we learn will be used over and over again. Becoming a “Math Thinker” is our solution to the mysteries in this exciting world of numbers; formulas and rules are the clues we use to unlock the mysteries.
We will begin the year working with the State Standard: M6N
Students will understand the meaning of the four arithmetic operations as related to positive rational numbers and will use these concepts to solve problems.
Throughout the year our focus will be on:
Knowledge (Vocabulary, formula, rules)
Understanding (Relationships, patterns, connections)
Proficiency (Accuracy in problem solving)
Application (Problem solving with a strong emphasis on word problems)
Orders of operation:
Please --- Parenthesis
Excuse --- Exponents
My --- Multiply (both from left to right)
Dear --- Divide
Aunt --- Add (both from left to right)
Sally --- Subtract
