We are excited for our students to be joining us in the science department this year. Please look below at what each grade level is going to be learning for this upcoming school year. The sixth-grade Science course assists students in becoming life-long learners who grow in their understanding of the world. The concept of change is observed through the study of energy transformation. We also explore physical properties of matter, energy resources, and the Solar System.
In 7th grade, standards emphasize a more complex understanding of change, cycles, patterns, and relationships in the living world. Students build on basic principles related to organisms, populations, ecosystems, and genetic information.
Much of 8th grade Science focuses on earth and space science. Students recognize relationships between force and motion, examine the Periodic table and its properties, and delve into the characteristics of the Universe and theories. Students also explore the interdependence between living systems.
