Carl Benning, Sixth Grade

My name is Mr. Benning. I teach 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grade science. I look at science as learning about God's creation. He did a lot when he said "let there be...".

In science we do some labs in class. Every quarter has a special project for 5th through 8th grade. To look at the projects for this year, visit each class. In the lower grades we have units in our books on physical, earth, and life science. Seventh grade studies earth science, chemistry, and 8th grade studies life science.

Fifth and Sixth grade memory is quizzed on Tuesday and Thursdays. Please check the schedule for that day's work (click below). Most quizzes are fill in the blanks.

Fifth Grade religion is the study of the old testament. Sixth grade religion is the study of the new testament. Both classes study church history and the chief parts of the catechism.

I have taught at ALIS since 1989. I also taught at schools in Decatur, Indiana and Worden, Illinois. I have 9 years experience in working with handicapped persons in a sheltered workshop.

My family includes my wife, Karen, sons Matthew and wife Tina and son Marcus and twin girls Ella and Kaly, and Lucas, and daughter Becky, her husband, Kyle, and granddaughters Hannah and Maggie Norris.
