One skill we need to master for the Common Core Standards is our ability to take a quote and not only analyze and explain its meaning, but also apply it and show evidence to a relating text. We will be practicing this skill as we read True North by Kathryn Lasky. Every other week during clinic you will be given a quote that you need to respond to through this Moodle. I will respond to each of your responses and note a rubric grade at the conclusion of each response. If you would like to raise your score, then you will need to print the original answer with my response and attach your re-do to it. Remember the words of Harriet Tubman,
"Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world."

This will be the first unit of study for Mrs. Henry's 7th Grade Science Class. The site will contain many general resources for the year and links to all other units for the year. I hope you are up for a very exciting year.

During this unit we will explore the many different living things which exist and how scientists sort and name them.

During this unit we will discover the structure and function of the basic unit of living things - the cell.

During this course we will be learning interesting and exciting information about the human body.

Starting in September 2009 the content of 7th grade science has changed. Physical Science topics will be covered in 7th grade. This would include Force and Motion, Waves, Sound and Light, Earth's Atmosphere and Chemical Interactions.
