Mr. Bennett's Class News
...what's been going on in 7th Grade Life Science?
Currently Review ALL Science AKS!
Also this week, students learned about animal/plant cell structures, cell processes, & how the human body systems are interconnected. We also took a look back at Ecology to focus on energy as it is moved & cycled throughout our ecosystems. We explored each of Earth's major biomes & ended the week with a review of symbiotic relationships & food webs. Our science interactive notebooks have been an invaluable tool during the review process. Keep reading to see what are next steps are in Life Science!

Groups Preparing to Teach/Review Human Body Systems!
Review Centers for Milestones
Mind Mapping Project: Students will begin this project shortly after the Milestones Test. We will be connecting all of our learning to the levels of organization. Students will design and create an unique visual representation that organizes their knowledge of life science from cells, tissues, organs, organ systems, organism, population, community, ecosystem, & biome. These turn out awesome and students are really able to visually see the big picture of life science.
Animal Unit & Frog Dissection: After completing our mind mapping project, students will experience a quick crash course in studying animals. We will learn some of the basics and end with a frog dissection that will also help us better understand how our body systems are similar to other organisms.
