Science 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, overview of the four major areas of science, mathematics in science, the solar system, the atmosphere, natural cycles, weather and the earth, biology and genetics, and careers in science.  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.
