Enroll in Science 6 with Dolphin STEM Academy

Course Overview

Science is the study of the natural world. It relies on investigations and evidence to
describe the natural events that occur around us. Science 6A is an integrated science
course that covers topics selected from Earth and space science and physical science.
This course discusses the structure and properties of matter, force interactions between
objects, and Earth and space systems. In the first unit, you’ll explore the composition of
matter and atomic arrangements of substances. In the second unit, you’ll identify forces
and analyze the motion of objects using words, equations, and graphs. In the last unit,
you will study interactions in the solar system and the role that gravity plays in the
motion of celestial bodies.

Course Goals

By the end of this course, you will be able to do the following:
Apply the steps of the scientific method to explain phenomena involving matter and energy.
Classify matter by its composition and properties.
Model atomic and molecular structures of substances.
Explain the relationship between thermal energy and states of matter.
Describe the Bohr model of an atom.
Research historical models of the atom developed by scientists.
Identify and sketch forces that act on real-world objects.
Analyze the motion of objects using words, equations, and graphs.
Explain how the concepts of force and motion are related.
Analyze input and output forces in simple machines.
Solve problems involving work and power.
Design, build, test, and modify a device that uses one or more simple machines.
Develop and use a three-dimensional model of the Moon phases.
Construct a model of the solar system, and explain how its parts interact.
Develop and use a model to describe the role of gravity in the universe.
Explain the cyclic patterns of the seasons, the lunar phases, and eclipses of the Sun
and the Moon.
Compare and contrast properties of planets, moons, stars, asteroids, and comets.
