7th Grade Science

I am posting this web site to help students understand the different types of rocks.  If you get a chance and want to know what we have been studying in class, check out the videos over Igneous, Sedimentary and Metamorphic rocks.  The author does a very nice job of explaining and showing the different rock formations.

The 8th Grade Students will start a study of Motion.  Following is a Prezi that will be used in class.

Here are screen shots of the notes for Wednesday, January 30

The 7th Grade Students will continue to study Rocks.  Tuesday the students will look at Metamorphic rocks as well as review Igneous and Sedimentary rocks.  The students will have a "rock test" on Thursday where the students are expected to be able to identify the type of rocks by looking at clues of how the rock formed.

Week of January 14

The 7th Grade students are working to identify different minerals by using clues such as the luster and hardness of a mineral.  The students will take a mineral quiz on Thursday and then move on into Rocks.  Again, the students will use clues to discover how the rocks formed and what the rocks are made up of. 

The 8th Grade students will finish up with Chemical Reactions and will have a TEST on January 15 over types of chemical reactions, reactions rates and chemical formulas.  Following are the notes for class on Monday, January 14.

Notes for 1/14

Tuesday, January 8, 2019


The 7th Grade students will start with a quick study of Minerals and Rocks and then move on to Physical Science. 

A change this quarter is that if the students would like to improve a test score they have TWO options.  If the student writes out the question missed along with the correct answer, they will receive a score of 80 for the test.  If the student wishes to improve their grade further, the student needs to write the questions and answers and then come in after school and re-take the test.  The best score a student may receive is a 90.  The student must present the re-write and make arrangements to come in after school.  No other time is available for a re-take.

The 8th Grade students will do a short (2 week) course in Chemistry to finish up what was started first semester.  The students will be looking at the types of chemical reactions and balancing equations.  The notes will be available soon.
