Seventh Grade Science:

Life Science is the focus of the 7th grade science curriculum.  Main topics will be ecology, cells, reproduction and genetics.  Our curriculum offers many hands on activities (depending on if we are in the classroom or remote) and an online textbook (CK12).  In addition to learning science concepts, students will be asked to analyze outcomes of our activities.  

Grading for science will be a form of standards based grading.  Basically all grades entered into the grade book will be to assess student knowledge.  Homework will be practice for their assessments and will not have significant impact on their overall grade.  Standards based grading provides students with extended opportunities to make sure students are understanding concepts and will allow students to retake assessments if it is determined they have not learned a concept.
