I just accepted a transfer to 6th grade Science. Woo Hoo! I will be the only one teaching Science and will have 6 sections. We will be implementing Common Core Standards this year and I am looking for any and all help in regards to pacing charts, I Can statements, quarterly assessments, etc. Also, I would be greatly appreciative of any recommendations as to classroom set-up, how you use science journals, what a typical 50 minute period would include. Coming from teaching self contained 3rd grade, there was TONS of things floating around, but I'm having a more difficult time finding information for 6th grade Science. Thanks in advance for any help or wisdom. I know I will come up with my own way of doing things, but I have never been disappointed with the great ideas that proteacher members are willing to share. I am super excited and can't wait to get started!
