Expectations

The seventh grade policies and procedures apply to all science classes.
Safety is a primary concern in the science lab and students need to be well behaved.
Students will sign a safety contract as a part of our safety unit during the first few weeks of school. Students who do not follow directions and obey safety guidelines during lab activities may not be allowed to continue the activity for the day. A lowered grade should also be anticipated for the activity. During outdoor learning experiences, students are also required to obey all classroom safety rules and guidelines.
Students are expected to reserve a section of their binder for their science notebook that includes science notes, lab reports, and other activities. Your teacher will give directions for organizing your work. It is the student’s responsibility to maintain a neat science notebook. Quality work is desired and expected.

Grading

Grades will be determined using the following guidelines:
Tests, Major Projects 40%
Classwork, Activities, Labs, Quizzes 50%
Homework assignments 10%

Time at home will be required to preview material, complete projects, finalize lab reports, read the textbook, learn vocabulary and content, and review for tests. These items will not be included in the 10% portion of the grade even though many of these things should be done at home (outside of class time).

Absences

Students are responsible to make up any missed class assignments or tests when absent. Make arrangements with your teacher when you return to class for a time to make up tests or lab activities. It is the student’s responsibility to communicate with your teacher if you have any concerns about assignments.

Jekyll Trip

We are getting ready for Jekyll. The list of the students going on the first and second trip has already been posted. Students have signed up for their roommates and are waiting to be assigned for their classes.

Students make sure you are ready for the field trip. Check over your packing list and start gathering your items to pack this weekend.

Parents please remember all medication that your child will need on their trip to Jekyll Island must be turned into the nurse by Monday or Tuesday, February 14th at the latest. Any student medications for the Jekyll trip need to be given to the nurse in the original container. Teachers are unable to accept medicine on the morning of the trip.

Important: For your child to go on the trip we need a copy of the insurance card. If you have not turned in the front and back copy of your insurance card yet, please turn it in by Tuesday, Feb 14th.

Course Description

This year, students will engage in research and inquiry activities that include experimentation, data analysis, and real world issues relevant to science and technology.

Seventh grade science will focus on the study of the characteristics of living things and the cycles and interactions between living things and their environments.

Academic class periods have been extended to include time to also develop reading skills in the content areas.
The seventh grade science curriculum, as defined by the Cobb County School District (CCSD), includes the following Power Standards:

The learner will
utilize science process skills to engage in scientific inquiry.
recognize and utilize the SI System of measurement.
recognize the cell as the basic unit of life and describe the structure and function of its major components.
demonstrate an understanding of the structure and function of the systems of the human body.
explain and illustrate how genes work together to create the traits of a living thing.
explain the methods biologists use to name and classify living things for the purpose of communication and study.
explain interactions between organisms and their physical environments.
explain that change over time is evident in the past and current diversity of organisms found on earth.
Visit the CCSD website (http://www.cobbk12.org) to view the complete list of curriculum standards. Select the PICASSO link on the right margin of the page. Stay on the Parents tab and select science from the list, finally choose 7th grade.
