7th Grade Science

Let's Get Shaking

September 2015

Welcome back!

This year will be even more challenging then the last, but I know our students can do it. Our focus will be on the systems that make the Earth what it is, our home. We will be starting our year with the structures of the Earth and how they interact with each other. We will be conducting many experiments to help in visualizing these hidden interactions.

The Science Classroom

Fear has no place in my classroom. Science is a subject of exploration and wonder. If my students fear risk or "getting it wrong" then our goals will never be met. The Science classroom is a safe place for our students, where they can feel safe taking risks in asking and answering questions as well as trying new things. I expect each of our students to respect themselves and their classmates by trying their best.

Pocono Environmental Education Center

PEEC is the Pocono Environmental Education Center. It is a learning experience like no other. Our trip to PEEC will be overnight in staff supervised cabins. All meals are provided and the entire trip is no charge to you. While there, we will hike through ancient forests and learn how to identify different animal life. The students will also engage in cooperative team-building activities, where all must participate and cooperate in order to accomplish their goal. This trip will be in October 7th and 8th, and more information will follow.
