Seventh Grade

Teacher: Autumn Watson

Seventh grade students often grapple with understanding the changes taking place in their lives. This makes it the perfect time to study the critical changes that have taken place during important historical eras. The Middle Ages, Age of Exploration, Renaissance and Reformation form the basis of main lesson themes. Literacy skills are strengthened using stories related to theses themes. Writing activities also relate to main lesson content. The geography and cultural history of Asia, Africa and South America expand the students' understanding of our complex world. Math studies include perspective drawing through geometry and architectural design, algebra and its historical origins, and applications of geometry and algebra in real life. In science, students are introduced to chemistry, physics, anatomy, heredity, and nutrition.
