Sixth Grade Science
What's Going On?
Happy New Year! 2016 is the Year of the Monkey
Can you believe Presidents' Day is next weekend? Time is sure flying by! I feel like we've just returned from the December holiday break, and February vacation is right around the corner.
We've been working hard during Science classes to understand the theory of plate tectonics, faults and changes in and on the earth. Volcanoes and earthquakes are just two of the causes of destructive and constructive forces we've been examining. As we move into March, we'll be adding erosion and weathering to the forces that impact Earth's surface.
Hour of Code
As we gained more experience, the kids were then able to program their own Angry Birds game! Many of our 6th graders downloaded their version onto their own cellphones. Very cool!
As I write this, all sections of Earth Science are working on building an interactive word wall to teach each other the important ideas and key terms about plate boundaries, volcanoes and earthquakes. Photos to come!
Hour of Code
Due to weather last weekend, the FONPS Spelling Bee has been postponed until Friday, February 12th. CPS has three student/teacher teams entered for competition this year! Come on down to cheer on your friends and help support the FONPS.
