All seventh graders take a year long course in Life Science. This is a non-leveled course.
600 LIFE SCIENCE
Our seventh grade life science course provides students with an introduction to life science and the scientific method. Students study living things and scientific processes. The curriculum includes the study of cell structure and function, genetics, classification of living organisms, animal behavior, vertebrates, invertebrates, and human body systems. Making cookies of plant/animal cells, demonstrating osmosis in the laboratory using gummy bears, creating Punnett squares, researching human body systems and creating a PowerPoint presentation are just a few of the activities completed. Also, during the fourth quarter, seventh grade students study a basic dissection.
