Life Science!

Ages:  11-13

Text: an online text will be available for this class

This is a one year class, but students may choose to stay in the class each trimester.

Homework:   Expect approximately 2 hours of homework per week, consisting of readings, assignments, and project-related tasks.

   

Hello and welcome to 7th grade Life Science!

Throughout this year, we will explore the fundamental principles of the Life Sciences through hands-on experimentation, inquiry-based learning, and collaborative activities. Our curriculum aligns with California’s Next Generation Science Standards and will prepare for higher level science courses. 

Topics:

1. Molecules to Organisms

2. Ecosystems: Interactions, Energy, and Dynamics

3. Earth Systems

4. Earth and Human Activity

5. Matter and Its Interactions

6. Engineering and Design

As with all of our science classes here at HuckleBerry, this is a hands-on experience!  Our weekly labs will include a fun and exciting array of wet and dry labs. In our photosynthesis lab, we will witness the effects of light and air on plant mass. We will model plate tectonics during our studies of the Earth’s system. We will experiment with fermentation while studying cellular respiration and build a model to learn about erosion.

 

Each trimester, our class will work on a group project to help solidify what was learned while fine tuning our collaboration skills. 

All materials will be provided for this class, including access to electronic texts, workbooks, and lab equipment. Students must have access to a computer and the internet at home for homework and projects.
