                       Welcome to Seventh Grade Science!

We have an exciting year planned in science. Our studies will take us from the very small to the vastness of space and many areas in between. 

Our second unit is The Human Body. We are now working on a project that encompasses the nervous, muscular and skeletal systems. The project is due on March 13, 2015.
