My Classes
Welcome to Mr. Gentile's 7th grade Life Science classroom! Over the course of the school year we are going to cover many different topics in Life Science. Science is an exciting thing to experience. Some of the amazing things that occur in our daily lives are based on scientific principles we are usually unaware of. I hope to bring science to life this school year and make our time together interesting and relevant. Topics include: 1. World of Life Science 2. Characteristics  of Living Things 3. Ecology 4. Classifications 5. The 6 Kingdoms 6. Cells 7. Genetics 8.Human Body Systems 9. Plants. Please use this web space to stay up to date with your child's learning in my classroom. I will use this place to post announcements such as: homework, quizzes, tests, projects, and what topics we are covering daily in the classroom. 

Earth Science is an understanding of how the Earth and surrounding universe operate as a working system.  It is a science that is broken down into 4 different smaller branches of science.  The four branches are Geology, Astronomy, Meteorology, and Oceanography.  Geology is a study of the solid interior and exterior of planets, Meteorology is the study of the atmosphere (the gases surrounding the surface of planets), Oceanography is the study of the oceans and bodies of water that cover the earth's surface and Astronomy is the study of the universe and all the objects contained within.
