7th Grade Science


I am very excited to be part of the PKY team and look forward to a great year.

We will continue to work with the IQWST (Investigating and Questioning the World through Science and Technology) program. In short, IQWST provides a cohesive, integrated, spiraling, inquiry-based learning experience for middle school students. Driving questions engage student who delve into the subject, asking questions, coming up with models, testing those models, and coming to conclusions which usually describe important scientific principles. The seventh grade science curriculum is divided into four units,

  • Chemistry: Physical and Chemical Changes of Substances
  • Physics: Transformation, Conservation, and Transfer of Energy
  • Earth Science: Weather and Climate
  • Biology: Cells to Systems

Please come prepared for some serious learning!

Office Hours (sometimes cancelled or cut short due to my absence or meetings)

Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday from 2:10 to 2:40

If You Miss Class or You Need To Do Something For Class:

Go into the “Chemistry” folder way at the bottom of this page.
Click on the lesson that you missed. They are arranged chronologically.
Do as much of the lesson as you can, including practice and assignments where possible.
Make a note of items for which you need help.
Come and see me before or after school when you get back so we can make sure you are/get caught up.
