Science 7 builds on understandings from previous grade levels for learners to better understand the world around them and to become more familiar with the tools and skills used in science. In addition to observation and problem solving skills, learners develop their communication skills through making connections and sharing their findings in an organized manner. Through assigned readings, videos, and labs/activities, learners will have the opportunity to not only learn more about the world around them and the technology we have available to us, but also to assess our impact upon our world and how we can work toward a sustainable future. Each unit will have either a unit exam or a final unit project. Learners are expected to maintain a science journal in addition to their regular notes and assignments as they explore the fields of natural science, chemistry, physical science, and geological science.
