Reminder: To request a regrade for a Non-Zero or Warning assignment, you must send an e-mail to your teacher, with the URL of the document/page you want her to grade. You must sign your e-mail with your name, grade level and class. Remember that, although you only have one assignment, your teacher has to sift through all 170+ assignments and 5 gradebooks to find you. The easier you make it to re-grade, the higher the chance that it will be done promptly.

This week we begin working on the importance of science education, and science in general. We will solve a couple of mysteries involving tangrams and footprints and try to figure out how Dogs and Turnips can help us understand science. To round out the week we will talk about the scientific method. 

6th Science

We begin the week by thinking of new arrangements to the accepted scientific method. You then will work together to draft and conduct your very own experiment to answer a scientific question of your choosing. On Friday be ready to present your results to the class!
