Welcome to integrated science on team Bears!
Science at Woodbury School has become integrated! This means that each year your student will be exposed to science content within each discipline of science. The disciplines of science are: Physical, Life, and Earth and Space.
In sixth grade, we will be coving the following topics throughout the year:
Microbiomes Traits & Reproduction Oceans, Atmosphere, and Climate
Metabolism Thermal Energy Weather Patterns
Using Interactive Science Notebooks, your student will be able to effectively communicate their ideas to their peers and to me! Inside their Interactive Science Notebook students will record observations, create labeled drawings, write and draw about their own thinking process, create graphs, analyze data through writing, and have the opportunity to look back at what they learned and change their ideas as they continue to evolve their science understanding!
Students can access their Amplify Account by logging into a Chrome web browser with their Salem School District username and password. This will then bring up all their bookmarks. Amplify should be in the bookmark bar at the top of the screen. If students did not bookmark Amplify during class instruction they can go to their Google Classroom page to find the specific link for Salem School District Amplify.

Google Classroom is a place where you can go to look at assignments, get further instructions on an assignment, and to watch videos for upcoming classes.
Sometimes you will be asked to respond to posts in Google Classroom as an assignment. Please be sure to check Google Classroom frequently.
If you do not have access to the Internet at home you can access Google Classroom before school starts (see Ms. Kish for a pass the day before), during directed study, lunch, and after school (please make arrangement for after school ahead of time).
