Rasmieh's Fun Science 6 Smore!

My Smore shows what I love & learned this unit in Science 6

About me: Rasmieh Abdelkarim

My name is Rasmieh Arafat Abdelkarim and I am a 6th Grade student at Pioneer Middle School and my first period class is Science 6 with Mrs. Smith. I love cats and my favorite animal is the cheetah. I am from Palestine and I was born in Harbor City. I used to live in Torrance, but in the middle of my third grade year, I moved to Irvine, where I went to Myford Elementary School. I have three brothers, one currently in 4th grade, one currently in 2nd grade, and one who is three years old. I have one cat, Mittens, and one turtle, Terry. I love drawing, and solving huge puzzles. I also like collecting rocks and minerals, and making crafts including origami, pottery, jewlery, and more. My favorite book series is the Harry Potter series, and I am Harry Potter crazy. I look forward to having an awesome year in this Science 6 class!

Introduction to Science 6

Introduction to Science 6

This unit, we used many things such as microscopes, triple beam balances, metric rulers, a longitude and latitude map, globes, and living, non-living, and dead objects. We also learned a lot about these tools and did many projects with them.


When we used metric rulers, we...


  • Made our own metric ruler
  • Measured different parts of our bodies (handout)
  • Learned how to use a metric ruler (handout)
  • Used a metric ruler
When we used triple beam balances, we...



  • Learned how to use a triple beam balance
  • Used a triple beam balance
  • Read a triple beam balance
  • Completed 4 handouts/assessments including the use of a triple beam balance
  • Measured things on a triple beam balance
When we used microscopes, we...



  • Did a microscope handout where we took notes on how to use a microscope
  • Did a microscope handout where we took notes on each part of a microscope and how to use it
  • Labled and colored different parts of a microscope on a handout
  • Filled in a microscope sequencing map
  • Did the Letter E Lab where we drew, colored, and labeled a letter e on a microscope and drew another thing through a microscope
  • Did the Sand Lab where we drew, colored, and labeled different samples of sand from different places, trying to find out where Mr. Shafer went to surf over the summer, and answered some important comparison questions (he went to a beach in Vietnam)
  • Used a microscope
  • Learned how to use a microscope
  • Looked at things through a microscope
When we used a longitude and latitude map and a globe, we...



  • Learned how to use a longitude and latitude map/ globe
  • Used a longitude and latitude map/ globe
  • Completed several handouts involving the use of locating a point on a longitude and latitude map/ globe
  • Pointed our own coordinates on a globe
We are learning about living, non-living, and dead objects. We...


  • ARE filling in observations and a chart on Goolge Classrom
  • ARE observing living, non-living, and dead objects
  • ARE learning about living, non-living, and dead objects
  • ARE seeing living, non-living, and dead objects
We are still learning about living, non-living, and dead items.


We also learned about other thing like...



  • Observations and inferences
  • Classifying objects (lab)
  • Qualtative and Quantitative Observations (lab)
  • Compare and Contrast (lab)
  • ERWC
  • Clock Questions
  • Clock Partners
I learned many things this unit that I will be glad to learn more about in seventh and eighth grade.

My Favorite Science 6 Lab (continued from, "Introduction to Science 6")

My favorite Science 6 Lab that we already finished learning about is the sand lab because I loved looking through a microscope and comparing and contrasting different sand samples. I felt like a detective as I was comparing and contrasting the sand samples from around the world and trying to see which sample was the closest match to the sand on Mr. Shafer's towel. I also enjoyed seeing different types of sand from different parts of the world. Using a microscope was my favorite tool that I used this unit because I got to move a lot of parts and look at things from a new angle, so doing this sand lab was my defiantly favorite. We recorded our information on the Sand Lab handout. I would absolutely love to do a lab like this again.
