6th Grade Science

Working at Wheelersburg Middle School is a wonderful experience. Teaching science to our students is a joy! 

All classes have daily class assignments written on the board. 
Tests will be announced well in advance. Daily reminders are given, as well as, review.  Tests are subject to change according to the needs of the individaul class period.
Homework is limited to unfinished classwork and studying for tests. It is up to the student to make sure work is taken home when needed.
Students are encouraged to keep binders in the classroom daily, however are welcome to take them home for the night.  

The content covered in 6th grade Science is modeled from ODE (Ohio Department of Education) state standards. A copy of these standards and projected months they are covered  in my classroom can be found in the binder under "Grades and Content" in the front of the binder. 
Please reference the syllabus signed and located in the student's binder for further information.
