All About 7th Grades Life Science 



The 7th Grade Life Science course helps students develop an understanding of key concepts to help them make sense life processes that they encounter in their environment as well as within themselves. The ideas learned in 7th Grade Science builds upon students’ science understanding from earlier grades. In keeping with the underlying theme of providing multiple and varied opportunities for all students to experience STEM (science, technology, engineering and math). A major focus of this class is to provide activities where students can work hands on to help engage students and deepen their learning.
