6th Grade Science Curriculum

Within the guidelines of the Colorado State Standard and the Core Knowledge Sequence guide, students investigate energy in the Universe and its impact on matter. Specific areas of study include energy, heat and heat transfer, and the physical changes in matter due to energy transfer. On a larger scale, students study Plate Tectonics and Oceans and the role energy plays in the changes in both. Students also learn about the structure of the Universe by studying galaxies, stars, and planets. Finally, students explore human body systems.
