Science 6

Course Overview:

Science 6 is an integrated online course in which the fields of science are not compartmentalized. Instead, earth and space science, life science, and physical science are integrated within each semester. Semester A begins with instruction on the nature of science.

Integrated Science grade 6 continues to build on the concepts learned in the first semester and prepares the learners with the building blocks needed to dive deeper into earth and space science, life science, and physical science.

The course focuses on both the understanding and application of science topics. It includes a variety of assignments that help students apply their knowledge of science concepts. Throughout each module, there are multiple opportunities for formative assessment.

Semester 1:  

In Semester A, the course covers various fundamental concepts in science. Students are introduced to the field of science itself, and they explore topics such as forces and gravity, the stars, the Earth, the Moon, and the solar system. They gain an understanding of the principles and phenomena related to these subjects.

Semester 2: 

In Semester B, the focus shifts towards the study of ecosystems. Students learn about the intricate energy flow within ecosystems and the role of different organisms. They also delve into the topic of green plants and their importance in sustaining life. The concept of energy, including its forms and transformations, is explored in depth. Additionally, the course covers the principles of heat and its effects. Finally, Newton’s laws of motion are introduced, providing students with a foundational understanding of how forces affect the motion of objects.
