• 7th grade science focuses on four main units: Nature of Science, Chemistry, Cells, and Genetics.

    Nature of Science - Students learn how to work though the scientific process. There is a focus on setting up and recognizing independent and dependent variables, keeping variables constant, setting up a reliable control, and analyzing results critically.  
     
    Chemistry- Students will learn the basics of atoms, elements, compounds, and mixtures. We also get to experiment with chemical reactions and states of matter.
      
    Cells- Students will understand the basis of life, from the atom to the organism. We will use microscopes to enter the world of cells and learn about the processes that keep us alive.
     
    Genetics - We will look into the nucleus of our cells to understand DNA and how our genes are passed from one organism to its offspring.
