Daily Work/Homework

In sixth grade, we are building student responsibility.  Students are expected to be prepared for class with materials and assignments. Daily work and homework will make up 35% of the student’s final six weeks grade.


Student Labs

In Science, we will incorporate a hands-on lab or exploratory investigation during each unit. The labs will make up 25% of the student’s final six weeks grade.


Major Grades/Tests

Students will be tested over each unit.  The tests given will include vocabulary words, the content, and applications of all learned in that unit.  Projects will also be included in this category.  This category will make up 40% of your student’s final six weeks grade.
