Sixth-graders Study Characteristics of Living Things

Sixth-graders in Jennifer Licata and Karen Glum’s science class recently explored the characteristics of living things to kick off their study of Life Science. They completed a number of activities and experiments for the unit. “From learning how to identify cells under a microscope to running a controlled experiment to answer the question ‘What is yeast?’ to better understand the concept of metabolism, students are getting practice building their skills and reinforcing challenging concepts,” Licata said.
