The 6th grade team will be exploring transportation through our maritime modes of transportation.  In Math class, students will be investigating volume, integers, and the coordinate plane.  Students will investigate volume through manipulatives and tasks.  Students will also learn to model integers and transfer their knowledge to the coordinate plane.  The lessons will tie into Science through discussing buoyancy, to Social Studies through relating the coordinate plane to maps, and English Language Arts through reflections of learning.
