The 7th Grade Science course will deepen students’ understanding of life science. The course begins with the basic building blocks of life—cells. A unit on genetics will challenge students to investigate how DNA, genes, and proteins affect reproduction. Students will learn about different life processes and the importance of water, nitrogen, and carbon cycles. Students will analyze the effect of climate and weather on life and the environment. An investigation into human body systems, including the skeletal, respiratory, and immune systems, precedes the concluding unit on ecology where students will learn how living things interact with their environments. Throughout the course, there are lab investigations to reinforce science concepts and skills.
