Year 6, Term 3 Exams: Homeschool Exams and Tests for Sixth Grade

Year 6, Term 3 Exam

Literature: Mood with creative expression
(handicraft, recycled material project, diorama, cooking, land art, or art media: collage, paint, mold, chalk, pencil)

Describe a scene from one of our pieces of literature this term. Choose from the Iliad or stories from the Age of Fable (Iona, Druids, Baldur, Thor, Prester John, Vishnu, and Zoroaster). Consider how the story makes you feel, how you’d feel being there with them, and the consequences of the scene.

Science: Background with oral expression
(presentation: Defend, Persuade, judge, compare/contrast, inform, narration)

We’ve been studying about different yard herbs like dandelion, chickweed, violet, and plantain. Each of these different herbs can be eaten in different ways, are found in different places, and look different from one another. What can you tell me about herbs?

Social Studies: The Greater Meaning with movement
(play, puppet show, music, dance)

The Romans were interested in some different amusements then we are now. What are some of the amusements the Romans were involved in? What does it say about their human condition? How did those amusements influence their lives?

Bible: View point with written expression
(narration, proposal, biography, persuade, problem/solution, instructions, list, poetry, composition)

When we read stories from the Old Testament, we see that special rules were set aside for the priests. What are some of these rules? Why were they in place? What would the consequences be if the rule were not followed? How did these rules influence their lives?

Social Studies: Action (Drama, Movement, Change) with visual expression
(diagrams, blow-outs, maps, graphic organizers, chart, pamphlet)

Throughout history people’s occupations have changed according to the needs of society, the area of the world that they live in, and how technology changes. You have studied people living in different cultures and in different ages: Ancient Romans, Israelites, and Egyptians.

Tell me about three different occupations. Be sure to include information about the jobs: where in the world the worker is, what time in history it is, who the person is that is doing the job, and what could have happened or did happen to change the job.

Social Studies, Science, Music, and Art: Characterization with analytical expression
(game, puzzle, crossword, word search, code) 

Some people have a character worth remembering. Some don’t have a good character, but they are worth remembering just for that reason. Some people have art made of them (like the columns or busts of Roman senators) or they have songs written about them or for them.

What is something history should remember about someone you learned about this term? Choose from your character from Plutarch, Galileo, Herod, Augustus, Akhenaton, Philo, Strabo, Tiberius, Hermann, or one of the scientists you’ve studied.
