Science A (6th Grade)
This course is the first in a two-course sequence. It introduces middle school students to the disciplines of life science, physical science, and earth-space science. In addition, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) concepts are integrated throughout the course. The lessons make real-world connections and require students to apply STEM skills like analysis, problem solving, science knowledge, and engineering practices. Hands-on and virtual laboratory investigations are included throughout the course to provide students opportunities for exploration through scientific inquiry, research, measurement, problem solving, and experimental procedures. By the end of the course, students will be practicing, experimenting, thinking, and talking like a scientist!

Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:
• Describe and investigate types of forces, including contact force and forces acting at a distance.
• Calculate speed, velocity, and acceleration and describe the relationship between each.
• Differentiate between potential and kinetic energy and describe the transformation of energy from one form to another.
•Define physical and chemical weathering, erosion, and deposition and explain how Earth’s surface is built up and torn down through these processes.
•Define geosphere, hydrosphere, cryosphere, atmosphere, and biosphere and compare and contrast interactions among these spheres.
•Differentiate among radiation, conduction, and convection and describe their interactions among Earth’s systems, including the transfer of thermal energy.
•Recognize and describe weather and wind patterns, major types of climate, and heating and cooling patterns of Earth.
•Explain how water cycles between the atmosphere and hydrosphere and explore how the cycling of water has an effect on weather patterns and climate.
•Describe the composition and structure of Earth’s atmosphere and explain the function of each layer.
