Welcome to Mr. Daniel's 6th Grade Science Class!
Greetings all! I hope that everyone had a restful and pleasant Spring Break! It would have been better without all of the wind, but it was still a week off! The only major event we have this week is that progress notes will go home tomorrow. Other than that, it’s just a normal week full of exciting new things to learn! As always, it is important for students to be in class every day so that they don’t miss out on all of the cool stuff we get to do!
Week 28 (March 19 – 23)
Monday: We will take what we learned about the layers of the earth and use it to describe the plate tectonics theory. We will start by covering the vocabulary for this unit.
Tuesday: We will discuss the major tectonic plates, how it formed, its location, and how it moves using the Fusion lesson, “Plate Tectonics.”
Wednesday: We will look at the effects of plate tectonics on geologic events (mountain formation, volcanoes, earthquakes, and tsunamis).
Thursday: We will rebuild Pangaea and discuss what has happened to the plates over the last 350 million years.
Friday: We will discuss how the layers of the earth, continental drift, and plate tectonics work together to describe how the surface of the earth changes over time.
There are now only 10 weeks of school left, but we still have 4 more units and lots left to learn! If you ever have any questions, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If anything else comes up for this week, I will let you know as soon as I can.
Thanks for stopping by!
