Links to SEEd Strands: 6.0.0 Each lesson in the new SEEd science standards starts with a phenomena, as a theme or hook, this will help students understand the science behind the concept.  It is also important to teach the scientific and engineering practices as well as the crosscutting concepts. 

SEEd Storylines: The sixth grade SEEd standards provide a framework for student understanding of the cycling of matter and the flow of energy through the study of observable phenomena on Earth. Students will explore the role of energy and gravity in the solar system as they compare the scale and properties of objects in the solar system and model the Sun-Earth-Moon system. These strands also emphasize heat energy as it affects some properties of matter, including states of matter and density. The relationship between heat energy and matter is observable in many phenomena on Earth, such as seasons, the water cycle, weather, and climates. Types of ecosystems on Earth are dependent upon the interaction of organisms with each other and with the physical environment. By researching interactions between the living and nonliving components of ecosystems, students will understand how the flow of energy and cycling of matter affects stability and change within their environment.

CPO Focus on Life Science Various chapters from this online text book may be used as additional reading material to provide information in inventigating the reason for the SEEd phenomenon.

Sixth-Grade Science for UT SEEd Standards
This book is written at a sixth-grade level by USBE OER and is available online at CK-12 Foundation. It contains the four strands of the SEEd standards. It provides a resourse for students to use as they investigate the reasons for phenomenon in which they are sudying.

The sixth-grade standards have energy, matter, water, atmosphere, space, and the environment in common with the Utah SEEd strands. Using is a way for students to master the facts and concepts for the Virginia Standards of Learning Tests. Success on the Virginia SOL tests results from preparation and practice!

What is an Ecosystem? by eSchoolToday
An ecosystem includes all of the living things (plants, animals and organisms) in a given area, interacting with each other, and also with their non-living environments (weather, earth, sun, soil, climate, atmosphere). Ecosystems are the foundations of the Biosphere and they determine the health of the entire earth system.

Food Chains by eSchoolToday
All living things need to feed to get energy to grow, move and reproduce. But what do these living things feed on? Smaller insects feed on green plants, and bigger animals feed on smaller ones and so on. This feeding relationship in an ecosystem is called a food chain.
