Silver Team 7th Grade Science Description:

Science students in 7th grade will study Environmental Science during the first half of the school year.  The topics of study will include laboratory safety, the water cycle, the oceans, the atmosphere, and ecology.  The second half of the year will be dedicated to the diversity of life.  Students will learn how to operate a light microscope and prepare slides of live cells.  Students will study taxonomy, the classification of life, including an extensive survey of the kingdom Animalia complete with preserved specimen dissections, and an introduction to biochemistry.  Hands-on demonstrations and laboratory investigations will be combined with cooperative and individual assignments, discussion, and presentations in order to foster learning and participation.
