Pre-AP Science ~ Mrs. Sanchez and Ms. Marek

Marek - This is Week 2 of “Forces of Change” a literature-based unit on force, motion, and activism. In class, we have been reading books that tell the stories of activists and the social “forces” that act with and against agents of change. Over the three-day weekend, students will choose one picture book to read in order to prepare for literature circles on Monday the 2nd. This should take 15-20 minutes of their time and if you are seeing family over the break this is a great opportunity to have your 6th grade scientist read with sibling or cousin! Digital copies of the books will be available on our website.
