WELCOME! to Ms. Crane’s 6th grade SCIENCE wiki!
WELCOME to Riverdale Middle School an International Baccalaureate (IB) school, home of the WOLVES! Our first day of school will mark the beginning of a yearlong journey through PHYSICAL SCIENCE! With inquiry at the core, the Middle Years Program (MYP) sciences framework aims to guide students to independently and collaboratively investigate issues through research, observation and experimentation. The MYP sciences curriculum must explore the connections between science and everyday life. As they investigate real examples of science applications, students will discover the tensions and dependencies between science and morality, ethics, culture, economics, politics, and the environment.
Students GREEN folders have been checked PLEASE make sure they have their folder set up correctly! Title Page – Title Interactive Science Folder, Colored picture, 3 goals for the school year, their name. Table of Contents (attached below) numbered, 0-25, 26-51, 52-77, 78-103.
