West Virginia Standards for Sixth Grade Science

WV.SC.S.6.1. Nature of Science: Students will demonstrate an understanding of the history of science and the evolvement of scientific knowledge, demonstrate an understanding of science as a human endeavor encompassing the contributions of diverse cultures and scientists, demonstrate an understanding of the characteristics of a scientist, demonstrate skills of scientific inquiry.

SC.O.6.1.1. Realize that scientists formulate and test their explanations of nature using observation and experiments.

SC.O.6.1.10. Utilize experimentation to demonstrate scientific processes and thinking skills (e.g., formulating questions, predicting, forming hypotheses, quantifying, or identifying dependent and independent variables).

SC.O.6.1.11. Construct and use charts, graphs and tables to organize, display, interpret, analyze and explain data.

SC.O.6.1.12. Use inferential reasoning to make logical conclusions from collected data.

SC.O.6.1.2. Recognize scientific knowledge is subject to modification as new scientific information challenges current explanations.

SC.O.6.1.6. Formulate conclusions through close observations, logical reasoning, objectivity, perseverance and integrity in data collection.

SC.O.6.1.7. Apply skepticism, careful methods, logical reasoning and creativity in investigating the observable universe.

SC.O.6.1.8. Use a variety of technologies and scientific instruments to conduct explorations, investigations and experiments of the natural world.

SC.O.6.1.9. Demonstrate safe techniques for handling, manipulating and caring for science materials, equipment, natural specimens and living organisms.

WV.SC.S.6.2. Content of Science: Students will demonstrate knowledge, understanding and applications of scientific facts, concepts, principles, theories and models as delineated in the objectives, demonstrate an understanding of the interrelationships among physics, chemistry, biology and the earth and space sciences, apply knowledge, understanding and skills of science subject matter/concepts to daily life experiences.

SC.O.6.2.10. Classify and investigate properties and processes (changes) as either physical or chemical.

SC.O.6.2.11. Investigate the formation and separation of simple mixtures of matter concluding that matter is composed of tiny particles and that the particles are the same for the same type of matter.

SC.O.6.2.13. Using the periodic table, identify the symbols of elements as solids, liquids, and gases; metals or nonmetals.

SC.O.6.2.14. Describe the composition and properties of matter (e.g., particles, malleability, melting point, density, inertia, or specific heat).

SC.O.6.2.15. Investigate the properties of the electromagnetic spectrum (e.g., wavelengths, frequencies, visible light); relate wavelengths and/or frequencies to position on the electromagnetic spectrum (e.g., colors, x-ray).

SC.O.6.2.16. Recognize that an object's color is based upon the absorption and reflection of light waves.

SC.O.6.2.17. Describe light and sound in terms of longitudinal or transverse waves.

SC.O.6.2.18. Describe the flow of heat between objects (e.g., hot air rises, or absorption and release of heat by metals).

SC.O.6.2.19. Diagram simple parallel and series circuits (e.g., bulbs, battery, wires, or switch).

SC.O.6.2.2. Use pictures to show cyclical processes in nature (e.g., nitrogen cycle, carbon cycle, or water cycle).

SC.O.6.2.21. Examine simple machines and the forces involved.

SC.O.6.2.22. Apply the effects of balanced and unbalanced forces on motion of objects.

SC.O.6.2.23. Explain motion in terms of frames of reference and analyze graphs depicting motion and predicted future motion.

SC.O.6.2.24. Monitor major atmospheric events using a variety of resources including technology.

SC.O.6.2.25. Compare and contrast continental drift hypothesis to the plate tectonic theory.

SC.O.6.2.26. Associate plant and animal life forms with specific geologic time periods.

SC.O.6.2.27. Recognize the phases of the moon.

SC.O.6.2.28. Investigate models of earth-moon-sun relationships (e.g., gravity, time, or tides).

SC.O.6.2.29. Compare the earth's tilt and revolution to the seasonal changes.

SC.O.6.2.3. Classify living organisms according to their structure and functions.

SC.O.6.2.4. Compare the similarities of internal features of organisms, which can be used to infer relatedness.

SC.O.6.2.5. Examine how abiotic and biotic factors affect the interdependence among organisms.

SC.O.6.2.6. Construct models of plant and animal cells and compare the basic parts (e.g., cytoplasm, cell wall, cell membrane, nucleus, or chloroplasts).

SC.O.6.2.7. Compare growth cycles in different plants (e.g., mosses, ferns, perennials, biennials, woody plants, or herbaceous plants).

SC.O.6.2.9. Analyze the ecological consequences of human interactions with the environment (e.g., renewable and non-renewable resources).

WV.SC.S.6.3. Application of Science: Students will explore the relationship between the parts and the whole system; construct a variety of useful models; examine changes that occur in an object or system, demonstrate an understanding of the interdependence between science and technology, demonstrate the ability to utilize technology to gather data and communicate designs, results and conclusions, demonstrate the ability to evaluate the impact of different points of view on health, population, resource and environmental practices.

SC.O.6.3.2. Construct a variety of useful models of an object, event, or process.

SC.O.6.3.4. Compare and contrast the influence that a variation in scale will have on the way an object or system works (e.g., cooling rates of different-sized containers of water, strength of different-sized constructions from the same material, or flight characteristics of different-sized model airplanes).
