This is the first unit that I use in my sixth-grade science class. It covers classroom expectations, lab safety rules and symbols, the metric system, and includes an experiment where student compare and test their unique designs. My students use a lab notebook, so pages are meant to be cut and glued into the notebook. However, the pages can be easily completed on their own without the notebook.
This unit also includes references to the New Generation Science Standards (public draft from June 2012)!
The first page in the SMART notebook is a calendar. All of the activities in the unit are organized in the calendar. Each day is mapped out with linked text showing the name of each activity. The text is linked to directions, web pages, or files. The text is made to be moved, so if you don't get to all of the activities in one day you just drag the text to the next day's plan. A SMART Response unit test is included as well.
There are 38 pages in the SMART document, and 19 files in the attachment tab.
