Course Description:  The seventh grade Science course presents a scientific study of the structure and function of living organisms.  Attention is given to important principles and concepts that help students understand that there are general characteristics of life evident in every organism.  Lab work and “hands-on” activities are a basic part of this course, including the use of microscopes and other scientific equipment.  This issue oriented approach helps students understand the everyday relevance of science.  Emphasis is given to practical implications and everyday applications that are meaningful to middle school students.  

 

Objectives:  The main objective of this course is for each student to be able to work independently, work together in groups, and understand the main components of the seventh grade science curriculum.

 

Evaluation:  The marking period grade will consist of tests/projects, quizzes (announced and unannounced), homework, and participation.  Participation consists of being in class on time, being prepared, working well with others, doing class work, and contributing to class discussions.
