Welcome to 6th and 7th Grade Science!

What we are doing in 7th grade...

 

We are now starting our second major unit:  Energy!  Students will learn about the various forms of energy and the different ways energy is transferred.  They will investigate how heat energy is transferred through conduction, convection, and radiation.  They will also investigate how light and sound waves carry energy and their properties.  They will then apply this knowledge when learning about open and closed circuits.  You can help your child by having them identify various energy forms in your household and how one form turns into another.
