Mrs. Tiebout's 6th Grade Science
labs, games, and lessons we have shared
Take a peek into our classroom!
How can we make our "good" better and our "better" best in 2015? Our class had some very thoughtful ideas. I'm so proud of this class am what you have achieved so far. I am really excited about where we are headed together!
Today we sorted all of our key words from Unit A. We learned that many of these words can fit into more than one category.
We LOVE labs!
This lab group is practicing making accurate measurements using a graduated cylinder.
The Lunch Bunch - an email I sent to the Grissom staff
I just wanted to share some good deeds done by my "Lunch Bunch," as the sixth graders have affectionately named themselves. Today several boys made a small mess on the floor with some popcorn and grapes. In the past I have asked that everyone clean up after themselves, so today one student came to me and asked if he could go get a broom from the cafeteria. When several of the boys returned from taking their trays back to the cafeteria, they proceeded to wash every desk, sweep the floor, and straighten chairs, all without being asked. They are so thoughtful and I really appreciate them!
Spike the Hedgehog visits Grissom
On two occasions I brought animals to class to help illustrate a lesson. Spike came during a discussion of habitats and food webs. He is an insectivore, and varieties of hedgehogs live in many areas of the world.
Diverse and talented
This really describes our group well. Students are kind and respectful, and they enjoy being in class!
Metric System poster
This was the first big homework project we did in the fall. Students had to find 5 items that had measurements of mass (grams), 5 of length (meter), and 5 of volume (liter).
