6th Grade – SCIENCE – Unit 2

Dear 6th graders,

We have started our new unit of Science, the body. I have found many links and some videos that might be helpful. But first, I would like that you explored the concept map that I have prepared. As always, remember that you need to have Java installed on your computer. In case you don’t have it yet you can download it from here. If you need a printed version of the map you will find it here.

Well, let’s start with some LINKS:
