Mrs. Friend's 6th grade Science
Hello 6th grade Science Parents and Students,
As we are transitioning into online learning I anticipate you will have many questions. Below are several questions and answers regarding the 4th and final nine weeks of the 2019-2020 school year.
How will I know what is being taught?
This 4th quarter has been designated for Ecology. Students will be focusing on what is abiotic/biotic, organization of living things, and how they live together.
When will work be assigned and due?
Every Sunday evening at 7pm I will upload everything you will need for the upcoming week. Assignments are then due by the following Sunday at 7pm. You will be able work at your own pace and when you have time.
Grade weights will not change, however, there will be NO tests. I will be adding grades for a Project, two Lab/Class activities, and a Classwork/Homework assignment. There will only be 4 total assignments in the end. To help keep track of what has been completed I will add a green checkmark when your weekly assignment has been submitted.
When is Mrs. Friend available?
My office hours are:
Monday/Wednesday/Friday from 10:00am-12:15pm
Where can I find my lessons for the week?
Everything you need for your weekly activities will be found in your Google Classroom, just as much of our work has already been. Your assignments may involve watching a video and then answering questions in Edpuzzle, sending me a Flipgrid answering questions or showing me your observations. If I have any “new” programs for you to use, those will also be sent through Google Classroom.
I have a question?
I have created a “Question ?” Flipgrid which allows students to create a video and upload. Students can also send a message through Remind(see below for how to join my Remind group), they can send me an email, or students can get on one of my Zoom calls on Tuesday or Thursdays. If it is during my office hours I should respond pretty quickly if not it will be within 24 hours (not including the weekend of course).
Thank you for your continued support,
Text the number 81010 with the mesage @Friend6Science.
You are ecouraged to join my Remind account (Friend6Science for 6th grade) and Mrs. Friend's Science Class Facebook page. I update both often! (Parents who used this last year will need to join the classes)
*In my lesson plans, I have attached any paper assignment that a student would need to complete to make up an absence. Lesson plans are subject to change depending on students needs.
*I re-enter late assignments on Friday by the end of the day. (unless absent). If a student is absent there will be a zero in Powerschool until it has turned in.
