6th Grade Science Studies Levels of Organization
by Brandon Hanika
Students in 6th grade are currently learning about topics in Life Science to start the school year. We have looked at several different items to identify the presence of cells, and have even seen plankton on a microscope. After seeing the presence of cells, one student even said “That’s gross and cool at the same time!” Science students are currently studying the different body systems and the levels of organization of living things. In addition to the many new concepts in life science, students also get to participate in a weekly ‘guess the score’ contest, where each student makes a prediction for the Nebraska Football game that weekend. The student with the closest prediction gets a piece of candy. It is a weekly thing that students look forward to.
