Quarterly Extra Credit
3nd Quarter Extra Credit: If interested in extra credit for the third grading quarter... Read Chapter 12 in your textbook. This chapter covers the topic of Plant and Animal Structures. Some of the content may be review from earlier grades, or are concepts that will be directly or indirectly associated with other chapters/units this year. Under 6th grade science is a file where you will find the extra credit assignments. There will be a Review and Reinforce worksheet as well as a Quiz for each lesson. Each Lesson (review & reinforce and quiz) is worth up to 5 points. You may choose up to 2 of the 4 available lessons. You may only earn up to 10 extra credit points this quarter!
Turn these in no later than Monday, March 19th.
If you participate in the Kiwanis STEM Fair you will recieve extra credit for that activity.  You cannot do this extra credit as well. 
General Information
Science Grades are weighted.
70% is based on quiz and tests and 30% = homework/classwork/labs.
Any online assignments as well as links to Quzlet sets, and helpful videos and websites can all be found on Google Classroom.
Students... I strongly recommend visiting our Google Classroom site. There are many helpful videos, links and Quizlets to help you understand lessons, review and prepare for quizzes and tests. At times you will also have to use this site for some assignments. Students can download the App or go to www.Classroom.Google.com and enter their school email and passord to access our class's page.
Students... I would highly recommend downloading the apps: Google Classroom, Remind, GMail (for school email account), Chrome and Quizlet to your smart phones, ipods, tablets etc... especially if you don't have access to a computer at home. These can be very helpful in reviewing materials covered in class and preparing for quizzes and tests!

· S   Students...Please make sure you have headphones at school and available to use in class.
