• SCIENCE

    Instructor: Bailey, Suzanne Cargle


    Sixth grade students will study earth science concepts through an inquiry based approach. By the end of 6th grade, students will be able to:
    • Collect, use, and analyze scientific data related to the Earth's processes
    • Use different models to represent systems such as the solar system and the sun/moon/earth system
    • Record observations about the Earth's materials and use these observations as the basis for inferences about the formation of the
    Earth
    • Describe observations and report information in graphical form about the Earth's processes
    • Replicate investigations related to the Earth's processes and compare and contrast different results
    • Recognize the effects of human activity on Earth's processes and conservation of natural Resources

    Seventh grade students will study life science through an inquiry based approach. This course will provide a smooth transition from elementary life science concepts to high school biology. By the end of 7th grade, students will be able to:
    • Collect, use, and analyze scientific data related to the diversity and classification of living organisms
    • Use the concepts of natural selection and fossil evidence in explaining the survival of organisms and the survival of successive generations of their offspring
    • Recognize the basic characteristics of the major topics in life science such as the diversity of living organisms, the structure and function of cells, heredity, ecosystems, and biological evolution
    • Describe the structure and function of cells, tissues, organs, and organ systems
    • Examine the dependence of organisms on one another and on their environments

    Eighth grade students will study physical science concepts through an inquiry based approach. This course will provide a smooth transition from elementary to high school physical science concepts. By the end of 8th grade, students will be able to:
    • Collect, use, and analyze scientific data related to physical science
    • Demonstrate a basic conceptual understanding of the laws of physical science related to conservation of matter, conservation of energy, and energy transformation
    • Use their observations to explain the difference between physical and chemical changes
    • Write instructions; describe observations, and report, in graphical form, information related to physical science
    • Investigate relationships between force, mass, and the motion of objects
    • Replicate investigations related to the laws of physical science and compare and contrast different results
