It has been great getting acquainted with all of the students these last few days. A big thank you to the students for being patient while I take some time putting their names to faces and faces to names!
The students have adapted well to the 7th grade science environment. They seem to be enjoying the classroom critters....and we will soon spend time giving the critters new names for the year.
Over the last week, we have focused on the basic characteristics of science. The students will be quizzed on that new knowledge during this week. We have also just begun our new unit covering Ecology. Students will learn all about Ecosystems and how organisms interact with each other within those ecosystems. We will spend about 2 weeks on Ecology, including a project where students will research information on the world's terrestrial & water biomes.
Onward we go with the learning!
