Science 6 is interdisciplinary in nature; however, much of the content focuses on physical science.  Students use scientific inquiry methods during investigations as they study the following topics:  classification and properties of matter, the movement and transfer of energy; forces and motion, the structure of the Earth, the organization of our solar system, the classification of living organisms and interactions within ecosystems



    Honors Science 6 covers the same topics included in 6th grade science.  This academically intensive course is intended for the scholastically motivated and scientifically curious student.  During collaborative lab investigations and projects, students analyze real-world situations to enhance the development of scientific process skills.  Independent reading, analytical writing and in-depth discussions equip students with the conceptual understanding and critical thinking needed in preparation for high school Advanced Placement courses.
