Grade 6

Comprehensive Science 1

Comprehensive Science 1 is the first in a series of three consecutive science classes. This course provides an introduction to science, energy, forces, weather, climate, Earth’s systems, and the living world. Some topics are explored in depth while others are introduced to serve as building blocks for M/J Comprehensive Science 2 and 3. Students explore science through everyday examples and experiences and participate in activities and online laboratory experiences to apply what they have learned.
