12/14/15 We are starting the "Botany" unit right before our winter break. Students will be studying plants, leaves, photosynthesis, and flower parts.
12/8/15 Seventh graders will have a test Friday, 12/12, on "Bacteria, Viruses, Fungi and Protists".
10/6/15 We have been working on Taxonomy (animal classification) and making a flip book to help us understand the process. The students have been introduced to a "Dichotomous Key", and using it to help them name and classify money, and animated cartoons. We will use this tool again, once we get to the "Botany" Unit.
9/11/15 Students are working on Observations and Inferences and working their way up to the Scientific Method and learning the Metric System. During this unit, students will be using a lot of tools to determine measurements, while focusing on labeling their measurements with the correct unit (grams, liters, meters...)
