Grade 6 Science – Zdonowski

Home > Classrooms > Mrs. Zdonowski > Grade 6 Science – Zdonowski

If science homework includes vocabulary words, all those vocabulary words need to be put into a word square. Then all those words with their definitions need to be put on index cards with the vocabulary word on one side and the definition on the other side of the index card.
Everything read from the textbook must be ANNOTATED. I will scan textbooks on a daily basis for the students annotations. This annotating is in addition to their homework that is listed below. Daily review is required.
Study daily.

Bring in a tee shirt to use for science labs.  Put your tee in a plastic bag.  Put your name on your tee and on the plastic bag.  The tees will be kept in your lockers.  Thank you for your cooperation.

Heat conductivity is a physical property that makes metal pots good for cooking.  Matter is anything that has mass and takes up space. A pool of water and a piece of ice have the same composition, are in different states of matter and have different Chemical properties. Matter is described by its physical and chemical properties.  Solid, liquid, gas are the three states of matter. Light bulbs conduct electricity. Chemistry is the study of matter and its changes.  Iron rusting is a chemical property. A substance is a single kind of matter that has a specific composition.  Another term for the ability to burn is flammability.

The energy of matter in motion is kinetic.

A compound has different properties from the elements that formed it, is a pure substance name of two or more elements and can be represented by a chemical formula.

A measurement of the amount of matter in an object is its mass.

Every chemical or physical change in matter includes a change in energy.

A solution is an example of a homogeneous mixture that is very evenly mixed.

A chemical bond is the force that holds two atoms together.

An example of a chemical change is burning fuel.

Atoms can combine with other atoms, they make up elements, and they are extremely small.

A molecule is a group of atoms that are joined together by chemical bonds.

An object’s density is its mass divided by its volume.

A measure of the average energy of random motion of particles of matter is temperature.

A pure substance that cannot be broken down into any other substances by chemical means is called an element.

Energy is the ability to do work or cause change.

During a physical change, the form of a substance is altered, but not its identity.

A change in matter in which energy is taken in is a endothermic change.

Electrical energy is the energy of electrically charge particles moving from one place to another.

A solid block that floats in a container of water has a lower density than water.

Ice is an example of the solid state of matter.

An element is a pure substance that cannot be broken down into any other substances.  A compound is a pure substance made of two or more elements chemically combined.

Thursday:  Study for quiz  Here are the notes:  Mendeleev arranged his periodic table in order of increasing atomic mass.  The rows in the periodic tale are called periods.  Moving across the periodic table from left to right, one finds in order, metal, then gases, then nonmetals.  Another name for a group is a family.  On the periodic table, elements in the same column have similar properties. An element’s properties can be predicted from its location on the periodic table. The average mass of all the isotopes of an element is called the atomic mass. The modern periodic table is arranged in order of increasing atomic numbers. Information found on the periodic table for each element includes its atomic number, chemical symbol, name, and atomic mass. An element with atomic number 10 is located to the right of an element with atomic number 9.
