We are now in our third major unit: Cycles! Students will be learning about a variety of cycles that affect our planet including: moon phases, eclipses, tides, seasons, water cycle, and cycles within our atmosphere. They will also learn about ocean and air currents and how they affect our climate. You can help your child by observing these things in nature.
7th Grade Calendar
We are entering our astronomy unit in science. Students will learn about the various objects in our solar system/universe and how they move. They will continue their study on gravity and how it affects objects in the universe. In addition, they will learn about galaxies and the vastness of the universe. Stars and their life cycles will also be investigated, as well as the tools that we use to see them. You can help your child by observing the stars together and identifying objects in the sky. Tune into the discovery or science channel. They have some great programs on the universe that will teach you and your child.
