Team 6B Science

Welcome to our website, a place where you can visit to learn all of the important information about what is going on in our classroom and at school. I hope you are able to find everything that you need, keeping you informed of the procedures, events, and learning activities for the 2014-2015 school year.

This site will change constantly throughout the year.  A great way to stay up to date with weekly lessons and assignments is to use the "Weekly Assignments" link on the right side of the page.  That page will consist of lesson summaries, essential questions that are the focus of our units, and daily assignments.  The documents section will also be updated regularly to give students access to hand-outs distributed in class.
