7th Grade Science

Seventh grade Science instruction is aligned to the California content standards and includes the study of: cell biology, genetics, evolution, earth science, structure and function in living systems, physical principles in living systems and investigation and experimentation.  These studies will be accomplished through a balance of direct instruction, group discussion, laboratory experiments, textbook readings, library research projects, model building, written assignments and assessments.  Science and Language Arts/History teachers work collaboratively to integrate the study of a variety of topics throughout the year which concurrently meet content standards for respective curricular areas: e.g.; research papers, oral presentations, persuasive debates, and writing works are expected outcomes.
