Our 6th Grade Science Class...
Welcome to our website! The 2021-2022 school year is on track to be a great year. This science class will cover many interesting concepts for our 6th grade students. It all starts with scientific processes and then we focus on content areas ranging from Earth Science to Physics to studying Space and the Universe. We follow the Next Generation Science Standards and incorporate the Engineering Design Process in all of our units. Prepare to step into our classroom and have fun learning science!

Our science room is buzzing with life!
-We have all sorts of plants, composting worms (Red Wigglers), and a variety of catfish!
-We also partner with the NJDEP Fish & Wildlife to participate in their Trout in the Classroom program. Our Rainbow Trout eggs will arrive in early October. We will be studying trout throughout the year (from egg to fry, to fingerling, to release) and the balanced ecosystem needed to sustain them. We will also be watching them grow through a live video stream once they are old enough :) Here's what you can expect to see:
