    I also teach sixth grade science. I always make sure that the students do 2 experiments for every chapter. These are experiments that the students do themselves that follow the scientific method. I will do teacher demonstrations from time to time but it is important that the students have lab time to aquire processing skills. If I cant find good experiments in the text, I go to the library for science activity books. My local library has a whole section devoted to science fair/experiment books. The most helpful have been books by Janice VanCleeve (sp?). The kids have a blast and they really do retain the information longer when they've "seen it in action"
