• The science curriculum in grade six emphasizes the study of earth sciences. Students at this age are increasing their awareness of the enviornment and are ready to learn more. The standards in grade six present many of the foundations of geology and geophysics, including plate tectonics and earth structure, topography, and energy.; The material is linked to resource management and ecology, building on what students have learned in previous grades. The grade six program forms a strong foundation for literacy in earth science.

Unless students take a high school earth science class, what they learn in grade six will be their foundation for earth science literacy.

  • By the end of grade six, students have mastered the four arithmetic operations with whole numbers, positive fractions, positive decimals, and positive and negative integers; they accurately compute and solve problems. They apply their knowledge to statistics and probability. Students understand the concepts of mean, median, and mode of data sets and how to calculate the range. They analyze data and sampling processes for possible bias and misleading conclu­sions; they use addition and multiplication of fractions routinely to calculate the probabilities for compound events. Students conceptually understand and work with ratios and proportions; they compute percentages (e.g., tax, tips, interest). Students know about Ï€ and the formulas for the circumference and area of a circle. They use letters for numbers in formulas involving geometric shapes and in ratios to represent an unknown part of an expression. They solve one-step linear equations.

  • Classes are based on the English-Language Content Standards, literature-based and thematically organized. The program incorporates significant literary works and emphasizes not only the integration of thinking, listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills, but also a multidisciplinary integration of the total sixth grade curriculum. Students read literature from many genres and culturally diverse works which correlate with Social Studies topics. Reading instruction includes novel studies, anthologies, and expository texts. Writing instruction will follow the writing process that will take students from pre-writing through revision and ultimate publications. Spelling and language mechanics are taught through direct instruction. Student assessment will include written assignments, research-based projects, comprehension questions, and open-ended projects. Students will be provided opportunities to integrate technology through word-processing, the use of blogs, presentation programs, and the Internet.

  • Students in grade six expand their understanding of history by studying the people and events that ushered in the dawn of the major Western and non-Western ancient civiliza­tions. Geography is of special significance in the development of the human story.  Continued emphasis is placed on the everyday lives, problems, and accomplishments of people, their role in developing social, economic, and political structures, as well as in establishing and spreading ideas that helped transform the world forever. Students develop higher levels of critical thinking by considering why civilizations developed where and when they did, why they became dominant, and why they declined. Stu­dents analyze the interactions among the various cultures, emphasizing their enduring contributions and the link, despite time, between the contemporary and ancient worlds.
