7th Grade Science


We believe that science should be a hands-on learning experience for students.  Students will participate in at least 3 lab days a week.  7th grade science is mostly focused on the life sciences.  Students will examine and study cells, living things, heredity, evolution, and ecosystems.  4th quarter students will study weather & natural disasters.


We will be covering the following NGSS (Next Generation Science Standards)

in 7th grade Science & Engineering:

  • Molecules to Organisms MS-LS1-1, MS-LS1-2, MS-LS1-3, MS-LS1-4, MS-LS1-5, MS-LS1-6, MS-LS1-7
  • Ecosystems MS-LS2-1, MS-LS2-2, MS-LS2-3, MS-LS2-4, MS-LS2-5
  • Heredity MS-LS3-1, MS-LS3-2
  • Biological Evolution MS-LS4-1, MS-LS4-2, MS-LS4-3, MS-LS4-4, MS-LS4-5, MS-LS4-6
  • Earth's Place in the Universe MS-ESS1-1
  • Earth's Systems MS-ESS2-4, MS-ESS2-5, MS-ESS2-6
  • Earth & Human Activity  MS-ESS3-2, MS-ESS3-3, MS-ESS3-4, MS-ESS3-5
  • Engineering Design MS-ETS1-1, MS-ETS1-2, MS-ETS1-3, MS-ETS1-4
