Welcome to 7th grade science. We will begin the year by learning about space and Earth’s relationship with other objects in our solar system, galaxy, and universe. In our 2nd quarter, we will explore the Earth’s structure and how rocks are classified. The 3rd quarter will be focused on the rock cycle and plate tectonics. We will spend 4th quarter investigating Earth’s ecosystems.
This year we are using the Discovery Education curriculum to guide and enhance student’s scientific literacy. Our science classroom is very focused on technology integration, student-to-student communication, and the use of interactive science notebooks. It is my goal that each student learn, not just this year’s content, but critical investigation and communication skills needed to be successful as they move forward in education.
