Grade 6 – Space

Grade 6 – Space

This post will contain all of the grade 6 lessons on space. Students will be learning about the components of the solar system, including the Sun, Earth, and other planets, comets, asteroids, and meteoroids. They will learn to connect the force of gravity concepts previously taught in our flight unit to the relationships found between celestial objects in space. Later in this section, students will investigate various technologies that are used in space exploration with a focus on Canada’s contribution to our understanding of space. We will begin by learning about stars, specifically, our most important and closest star.

Some Key Concepts About Elements and their Atoms

    • Atoms are made of extremely tiny particles called protons, neutrons, and electrons.
    • Protons and neutrons are in the center of the atom, making up the nucleus.
    • Electrons surround the nucleus.
    • Protons have a positive charge.
    • Electrons have a negative charge.
    • The charge on the proton and electron are exactly the same size but opposite.
    • Neutrons have no charge.
    • Since opposite charges attract, protons and electrons attract each other.
