EXPO INFORMATION - 6th GRADE

1 Corinthians 13: 4-8

1 Corinthians 13:4-8 New International Version (NIV)

Read the following verses and then answer the question at the bottom on a piece of paper (not typed.)

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.

______________________________

After reading, read the following question and write out your honest thoughts about it. There are no right or wrong answers. Please use binder paper, not google docs.

Does the Bible give practical advice for how to love others?


Discussion Rules

1. No hand-raising. Only one person speaks at a time.

2. Give everyone a chance to speak.

3. Everyone speaks at least once, no specific order.

4. Refer to the text when agreeing or disagreeing politely to a statement. (This is not a debate, just a discussion!)

5. Feel free to add things you hear to your notes!

6th Grade BOOK PROJECT 3

For our 3rd Book Project this year, you will pick a biography or autobiography to read. Take notes on the key details of the person's life. You will then use the "NON-FICTION book project reflection directions" to type up the reflection for this project. Use the "Independent Reading blog" on the Mrs. Hull Web page to find the papers related to this project.

For the project, you will use your menu, but you will have to adapt the directions to a non-fiction book. Please ask Mrs. Hull ahead of time if you need assistance in doing this.

The book project and reflection is due on March 27th.

Science Class 1/28/19

Commercials will be presented (or shown) on Wednesday in Science!

Today is the last chance to work with your partner in class to make sure you have included all of the needed information in your commercial, and it is presented as a commercial/advertisement.

Be sure you have included all necessary information:

1. What is it?

2. What are the benefits of using this alternative energy source?

3. Why is it better than using fossil fuels?

Use your textbook to help you! (Ch. 6, lesson 4)

Done? Ready to present on Wednesday? Please work on Expo or vocabulary homework. 

Original directions:
Use your science book  (Ch. 6, lesson 4) and added research to create a commercial on your selected alternative energy. You can use the web quest links on the 6th grade web page for research. Convince your audience that a future using this alternative energy would be better than what we do now!

You will work with a partner to complete this assignment. Class time should be used wisely! You may make a, poster, slide show, video, or scripted skit to show your commercial, but it must be done in the style of a TV commercial.

Christian Missile Engineer turned You Tube Teacher

Destin Sandlin is a Christian. He's also a missile engineer. He loves to know how things work and makes youtube videos to teach science concepts. Read more about him in the following article. 

'A Christian, he doesn't see God and science being mutually exclusive. And he passes that on to his children.

"I love to explore Creation using the tools of the scientific method as my map and compass," Sandlin said. "The saying I've taught my children is that 'In a world of talkers, we are to be thinkers and doers."'

—Destin Sandlin
