Science - Mrs. Smith

Welcome to Mrs. Smith's 6th Grade Earth Science Web page.

To find out what we do in class each day, and to find absent work, please click on Calendar to the left, find the day you were absent and click the link for the day you missed.

The "Useful Links"  tab will provide access to copies of assignments, the expectation letter and the lab safety contract. You will also find a PDF file of the textbook in this folder. 

  • Grading Policy

A to F letter grades are used in the online grade book.

Grades will be put into two categories: Assessment and Practice. Please see the guidelines below:

Test - Assessment (70%)

Lab - Practice (30%)

In-Class Work - Practice (30%)

Quizzes - Practice (30%)

Activities - Practice (30%)

STUDENTS CAN RE-TAKE ASSESSMENTS. PRACTICE GRADES CANNOT BE RE-DONE AND MUST BE TURNED IN ON TIME. 

  • Homework Policy

Homework will be assigned almost every night as a reinforcement to the day's lessons. The homework is built into the Amplify Science Curriculum. Amplify can be accessed at home. If students do not have access to technology at home, paper copies can be made, but I will need advanced notice to have copies prepared. 

HOMEWORK WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED LATE UNLESS THERE IS AN EXTENUATING CIRCUMSTANCE.
