Overview: In 7th grade science, students will begin the year reviewing/learning basic science concepts such as the scientific method and measurements to ensure their success throughout the year. The first half of the year will focus on physical science as students study energy, forces, and motions. They will explore elastic, frictional, magnetic and gravitational forces. During the second half of the year, students will investigate life science through hands on inquiry of living organisms, both plants and animals.
Homework: Homework will be assigned weekly, Monday-Thursday (with few exceptions throughout the year). At the start of EACH week, students will be given ONE handout and will be assigned different sections of the handout for homework each night. Homework will be reviewed each day in class. It will be periodically checked/collected for a grade!
Binders: Students will be expected to organize and maintain a SCIENCE binder with appropriately labeled dividers. We will set them up together in class (each student's binder will be set up the exact same) at the beginning of the school year. Students will be taught how to use their binder and then be expected to maintain the organization of their binder. Binder checks will occur periodically throughout the year and students will be assigned a grade based on their ability to stay organized.
