Parents will be invited to Google Classroom
The seventh grade science program is designed to present scientific concepts through an integrated approach with emphasis on the following four areas:
(1) organisms; (2) genetics; (3) earth; and (4)environment. While knowledge of content is being developed, students will be engaged in real-life, hands-on and cooperative activities that encourage problem-solving, critical thinking, and decision-making. Through these activities students utilize technology, information, and other tools while participating in investigations, explorations, and discovery learning. Throughout the learning process, students develop career planning and workplace readiness skills, demonstrate self-management skills, and apply safety principles.
Course Expectations and Assessments
Assessment focuses both on the cognitive skills of conceptual understanding, history of science and systems, and the process skills of problem solving, mathematics, and technology. Evaluation appears in several formats: unit tests, quizzes, performance tasks, projects, and laboratory experiences.
