In this Grade 6 Science Electricity Modified Unit, teachers are equipped with 16 engaging electricity lessons. These lessons will help teachers immerse their modified Grade 6 students in learning about electricity. Each of the 16 lessons aligns with a critical concept in the Ontario Grade 6 Science Curriculum but has significantly reduced reading and writing expectations within the lesson. 

This modified science unit is for classroom teachers who are required to teach the Grade 6 Ontario Science Curriculum but have students working significantly below grade level in reading, writing, and comprehension. An MP3 audio file of each student reading has been provided. This resource was designed to meet the needs of ELL students and/or students on a modified IEP.

  • Curriculum Alignment: Ontario Science Curriculum 2022 Grade 6 Strand C Matter and Energy - Electrical Phenomena, Energy, and Devices
