The 6th grade science curriculum looks at the causes of climate change and addresses the question about whether or not humans impact the natural climatic changes that exist.  The 6th grade reading curriculum involves information literacy in the form of the BIG6 process, and students are asked to identify and evaluate sources for research in order to present one position surrounding the human impact on the environment.  There is a clear synthesis between the two curricula and the lessons to look at websites critically will fit well into these curricula as students will need to be able to determine the position of the website as well as its general credibility.
