                       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 first unit will be Our Changing Earth where we sill examine how Earth has changed over its 4.55 billion year existence. Some of this unit will sound familiar as you studied some aspects of Earth's geological past in sixth grade. We will review some of these changes.but our main focus will be on how life began and changed over time.
