6th Grade


Course Description:

Students in this course will engage in learning experiences within two units: growth and development and drug prevention. Students will learn about physical, social, and emotional changes that occur during adolescence during the growth and development unit. Students will be taught factual information about the negative effects of drug usage and equip them with a variety of refusal skills to equip them to make safe, healthy decisions in future situations in which drugs may be present or available.

During the 6th Grade Foods class, students study nutritional guidelines, cooking terms, kitchen equipment, ingredient measurement, and kitchen safety. They then apply this knowledge by participating in hands-on food labs.
