Science Grade 7 CA (Credit: 1.00)

Science Grade 7 is an intermediate course intended to introduce students to several different sectors of science. Some of the areas covered in Science Grade 7 include the scientific method, cells, biology of organisms, ecology and the environment, evolution and adaptation, genetics and technology and organism interactions. The curriculum seeks to develop the students' ability to be aware of and participate in scientific inquiry. The units contain experiments and projects to capitalize on the students’ natural curiosity. The students will explore, observe and manipulate everyday objects and materials in their environment. Students at this level should show understanding of interrelationships between organisms, recognize patterns in systems, and expand their knowledge of cellular dimensions of living systems. Collectively, this should help students develop and build on their subject-matter knowledge base.
