Sixth Grade Science has been great this year. From the previous semester, we learned about the scientific method and about space.  We learned the steps of the scientific method and moved to studying living organisms, energy pyramids, energy webs, and chains.  In our space unit, we started with the Big Bang Theory and learned about the planets in our solar system.  This included a visit to the Challenger Center and a simulated Mission to Mars.

During the secodn semester, we will be learning about the engineering and design process.  There are pieces of the Scientific Method that are similar to the engineering design process.  We began by creating truss bridges from straws and testing them for strength.  There will be many more eciting hands-on experience this year.
