Monday is a student holiday. All 6th Grade students will be attending the Paramount Theatre field trip on Tuesday. The 6th Grade Science Mid-Unit Test is on Block Day in class and counts as a major grade. We will complete a graphing activity called Elements in the Earth's Crust in class on Friday.
6(b) 4(B) Use preventative safety equipment, including chemical splash goggles, aprons, and gloves, and be prepared to use emergency safety equipment, including an eye/face wash, a fire blanket, and a fire extinguisher.
6(b) 2(A) Plan and implement comparative and descriptive investigations by making observations, asking well-defined questions, and using appropriate equipment and technology
6(b) 2(B) Design and implement experimental investigations by making observations, asking well-defined questions, formulating testable hypotheses, and using appropriate equipment and technology
6(b) 2(D) Construct tables and graphs, using repeated trials and means, to organize data and identify patterns; and
6(b) 2(E) Analyze data to formulate reasonable explanations, communicate valid conclusions supported by the data, and predict trends
6.5 (A) Know that an element is a pure substance represented by chemical symbols.
6.6 (A) Compare metals, nonmetals, and metalloids using physical properties such as luster, conductivity, or malleability.

Announcements and Reminders:
No Do Now sheets this week. We will start a new Do Now sheet next week for Weeks 9 and 10.
Periodic Table Posters should have been turned in last week. Please do your part or we will have gaps in our hallway display!
