General Class Info
The 7th grade curriculum has been changed to allow students to spend the year exploring several branches of science. We will start with a look at the interior of the earth and the forces which cause change on the surface (volcanoes and earthquakes). We will then travel above the surface and Students will find out what the graphite in their pencils has to do with the diamond in our jewelry. By considering the needs of a human (vs the wants) we will analysis of some of our critical enivronmental issues. Finally, we will look at the patterns of inheritance and how mutations can effect the outcome in offspring.
I hope our students will catch some of my enthusiasm for the course and bring home thoughts and ideas to share!
Supplies for 7th grade science: 2-inch 3-ring binder; colored pencils; blue or black pens; red pen; pencils; lined looseleaf paper; pencil case to keep it all together!
Very basic: We owe each other RESPECT; to every person and all property. We must be RESPONSIBLE: Bring your supplies daily just as I will be prepared to teach you something daily! Keep up in class, ASK questions if you don't get it, I will let you know the first day of the week what day I will be available after school each week for more help.
