## Science

This week: We will learn about the weather patterns and air masses!!!

Our learning target for this week is:

• 6-8.ESS2.C.2: Research, collect, and analyze data to provide evidence for how the motions and complex interactions of air masses results in changes in weather conditions. (Air masses)

Our essential learning targets for the quarter are:

• 6-8.ESS2.A.2: Construct an explanation based on evidence for how geoscience processes have changed Earth's surface at varying time and spatial scales. (Weathering and erosion)
• 6-8.ESS2.C.1: Design and develop a model to describe the cycling of water through Earth’s systems driven by energy from the sun and the force of gravity. (Water cycle)
• 6-8.ESS2.C.2: Research, collect, and analyze data to provide evidence for how the motions and complex interactions of air masses results in changes in weather conditions. (Air masses)
• 6-8.ESS2.C.3: Develop and use a model to describe how unequal heating and rotation of Earth causes patterns of atmospheric and oceanic circulation that determine regional climates. (Climate)
• 6-8.ESS3.B.1: Analyze and interpret data on natural hazards to forecast catastrophic events and inform the development of technologies to mitigate their effects. (Natural disasters)

Important terminology for this unit: Weathering, erosion, rapid, catastrophic

## Social Studies

Tutoring After School will be offered on Tuesdays by Mrs. Windmann, and Thursdays by Mr. Hoskins for any Social Studies student who needs help with their assignments

## English Language Arts

This Week:

We will continue our non fiction unit focusing on main idea and supporting details. The websites www.dogonews.com, www.newsela.com, and www.wonderopolis.org are great resources for some extra practice. We will also start generating ideas for our argumentative papers.

This is a friendly reminder that ALL 6th graders should be READING 30 MINUTES EVERY NIGHT.

Our learning target for this week is:

RI1D- Explain the central/main idea(s) of a non fiction text and cite evidence of its development

Our Essential Learning Objectives (ELOs) for 4th quarter:

RI2D: Identify and author's argument in a text and distinguish claims of support and non support.

W2A - Follow a writing process to produce clear and coherent writing in which the development, organization, style, and voice are appropriate to the task, purpose, and audience; develop writing with narrative, expository, and argumentative techniques.
b. Expository: Develop informative/explanatory writing to examine a topic with relevant facts, examples, and details.

RL3D/RI3D - Read and comprehend literature and informational text independently and proficiently.

## Environmental Science

This week:

We will start learning about Earth's spheres and human impacts on those spheres.
