In today’s world of high competition for admission to professional courses such as engineering and medicine, it is imperative that students have a strong foundation in science subjects. Karnataka Board Class 6 Science syllabus set by the Department of Public Instruction, Government of Karnataka, targets this exact need. The syllabus introduces young students to basics of science topics so they are ready to grasp more complex concepts at a later stage.
Science syllabus for Class 6 of Karnataka Board is divided into three sections – Physics, Chemistry, and Biology. With the introduction of separate disciplines of science in Class 6, the students begin to clearly distinguish between the branches. They learn the very basics of Chemistry starting from classification of matter into solid, liquid, and gas states.
This gradual progression of complexity of topics enables the students to adapt to the relatively more rigorous demands of higher primary education. The board has done a commendable job in creating the right balance of introducing complex concepts without burdening the students much.
