Life Sciences, Grade 6
This module supports grade 6 students’ science close reading, modeling, explanation, and argumentation practices while building students’ knowledge of evolution, microbes, and antibiotic resistance. The MRSA investigation materials include an interactive notebook with integrated routines, scaffolds, and tasks, and a set of texts presenting engaging news stories, data, and science principles. The accompanying lice pre/post assessment can be used to measure students’ close reading and modeling progress. The middle school MRSA investigation may be used with the Reading Models module and the Water investigation to provide more extensive opportunities to learn.
