Science 7 Image result for biology    The focus of 7th grade science is Life Science, with supportive Earth Science and Investigation and Experimentation. Students will be investigating and experimenting throughout the year to reinforce the concepts being learned. Students will start their exploration of livings things with the basic unit, the cell. Building on that, students will learn about genetics, evolution, and the systems of living things. The focus will be on both plants and animals. The Earth Science learned will focus on the supporting evidence for the Life Science concepts.
Science 8  Image result for periodic table   The focus of 8th grade science is Chemistry, Physics, and Investigation and Experimentation. Students will be investigating and experimenting throughout the year to reinforce the concepts being learned. During Chemistry, students will learn the structure of atoms, the structure and how to read the Periodic Table, chemical and physical properties of materials, and chemical reactions, including acids and bases. During Physics, the focus is on forces and motion. Finally, both physics and chemistry concepts will be used to understand Earth and the universe as students explore astronomy.
