Invention Research

6th grade used Chromebooks to research an original invention of their choice. They applied computer applications of Google Docs to write up a small report that included a personal response on how their invention benefited society over the years. On Halloween, students made presentations to share information about their invention.

Skittle Data

6th grade  wrote two hypothesis and collected data on 61.5 gram package of Skittles. Students worked in small groups to discover the control portioning set by the company was not 100% accurate. They collected class data on a chart from each of the groups, then found the average mass and number of Skittles. Groups separated Skittles into color piles, calculated percentages, and made a bar graph. Students worked individually to answer questions about their findings using Language Arts sentence structure.
