This resource consists of five units that meet the requirements of the Life Science : Diversity of Living Things outcomes and indicators of the Grade 6 Saskatchewan Science curriculum.
If you find that some of the links do not open in the document, copy and paste them in a new window. The reason is the conversion from Powerpoint to PDF.
The outcomes covered are:
DL6.1: Recognize, describe and appreciate the diversity of living things in local and other ecosystems, and explore related careers
DL6.2: Examine how humans organize understanding of the diversity of living things
DL6.3: Analyze the characteristics and behaviours of vertebrates (mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, and fish) invertebrates
DL6.4: Examine and describe structures and behaviours that help:
- individual living organisms survive in their environments in the short term
- species of living organisms adapt to their environments in the long term
DL6.5: Assess effects of micro-organisms on past and present society and contributions of science and technology to human understanding of micro-organisms
The rest of the Grade 6 Science units will follow. Please follow me to be alerted when new units are added
