Liberty Team Social Studies

Happy Fall everyone. I love this time of year. The mornings are cool, the colors are spectacular, fresh picked apples are so delicious. 

Hard to believe we are just 3 weeks away from the end of our first quarter. In Social Studies we are working vigorously. We are wrapping up our study of European Exploration and will be moving on to our Unit on the 13 Colonies of the United States. This week we have learned about the Columbian Exchange, Triangle Trade, and an introduction to slavery in the America’s. 

The 8th grade Liberty Team wants to please ask for assistance. We have about 40% of students who have not turned in assignments from the core classes: Science, Math, Language Arts and Social Studies. We have been holding some Liberty Team afterschool sessions that are required for students to stay if they have missing work. We would like to drastically bring these numbers down and have students turning their assignment in on time. Please remind your students to check PowerSchool for missing assignment and encourage them to get work done on time. We would really appreciate it. 

We are also looking forward to meeting all our parents and guardians at the Parent/Teacher Conferences that will be held on Thursday, October 17. Hope to see you there. 


Keep Looking Up!

Sixth Grade Science students learn observation, prediction, data measurement and collection, and analysis skills by becoming more aware of the changes in the seasons, and in the sky.  On or about the 21st of each month, we record the length of our shadows at the same time of the day.  Along with our beginning and end-of-year height, we will create individual graphs of the data we collect using Create-a-Graph on our iPads.  In addition, we measure (and graph) the Sun’s angle off the horizon.  We determine the sunrise and sunset times for Lexington and compute the hours and minutes of daylight and darkness.  This data is also displayed in a graph.

In each segment of the investigation, we control all but one variable and identify the independent (also called manipulated or experimental) variable.  We then document and display the outcome of the dependent or responding variable—the condition that is a result of changing the independent (manipulated or experimental) variable.

With the data and graphs we can make inferences and draw conclusions.  This is what scientists do!  The culmination is a fine record of our 6th Grade year of our lives!  We continue to develop awareness of and appreciation for our world.

We regularly discuss our observations of and appreciation for the daytime and nighttime sky—including the changing phases of the Moon, and the changes in position of planets and constellations.  Go out to view the sky! 

Science students measure the length of their shadows (in centimeters) each month.

   

What is the angle of the Sun off the horizon?  Sixth grade Science students measure using a modified protractor.
