• Welcome to 7th Grade Science!

    Course Description:
             This year, students will develop their understanding of processes that occur on the Earth by focusing on Earth’s Geological History, the Earth’s role in Space Science and Populations & Ecosystems. The scientific inquiry process will establish the basis of learning in Science. It will also engage students in learning strategies that will help them understand Science concepts. We will be using hands-on activities, small & large group activities, individual and group projects to get excited about Science! Toward the end of each quarter, students will be assessed on their understanding of the concepts taught in class. Assessments may include projects, labs, traditional paper pencil tests, -etc.  Below is a copy of the daily schedule and a link of the 7th grade Science Syllabus that includes expectations, grading policy, etc.
