Welcome to Mr. Weibel's 6th Grade Science Class
Attention Students, Parents & Guardians:
In addition to your supplied Chromebook, I suggest equipping our students with inexpensive earbuds (Five Below, etc) to use for videos and interactive activities on laptops during class time.
Plus, in order to help me maintain reliable communication with you about your child, I will introduce and post a basic syllabus on Classroom during the first week of school conatining a QR code. You can also access the Parent Contact Google Form here!
Please find your period's Google Classroom code below. The Classroom page will need to be visited DAILY and will have all directions, assignments, and resources needed for success! For a very basic Quick Guide to Google Classroom, click this link.
Thank you! - Mr. Weibel
(You may want to copy, then paste your code!)
** I tried to correct your Google Classroom signups. If you were in the wrong one (or missing) I sent an invite to the correct Classroom. Please check your emails if you CANNOT get in a Classroom**

Science in sixth grade consists of an integrated curriculum combining Earth, physical, and life science. Topics include the following major units:
- Forces and Motion
- Space and Astronomy
- Cells and Heredity
The District Grading Protocol:
Hamilton Township Schools maintains a district-wide grading policy that breaks grades into 3 different categories. I will be using an approach called the Learner-Active, Technology-Infused Classroom, or LATIC. Work will be completed and left in classroom folders in concert with Google Classroom. Grades will often come in waves as students work on unit-sized activity lists. During these units, work will still be graded within the 3 district-wide categories as follows:
Summative grades include major tests (few, if any) and most projects (most common). Together, the assessments of this type count as 50% of the marking period grade.
Formative grades include small tests or quizzes and minor projects and classwork. Together, the assessments of this type count as 40% of the marking period grade.
Independent Practice grades include homework and most classwork. Together, the assessments of this type count as 10% of the marking period grade.
