Welcome to Mrs. Lush's science class. My goals for all my students are to learn to love learning, get excited about science, and always give their best effort. This year we will cover several topics: astronomy, matter, environment/ecology, energy, cells, and scientific method. The sixth grade science curriculum is based on the Indiana Core Standards, which also coorelate with the state ISTEP exam. Although we will use many different tools, resources, and strategies to learn the information, the two biggest tools will be the students' composition notebook and their Fusion science textbook. I am excited to start the new year with my new students and families, please let me know when I can be of help!
