7th grade science is busy working on their safety unit. This includes a review of science lab safety rules and the creation of a safety poster. Following this unit, we will begin our discussions on Science Fair.
7th grade social studies is currently studying the beginnings of America. This includes a review of the 13 colonies and will continue into the beginnings of the American Revolution.
8th grade social studies is currently studying the causes of the Civil War. Once moving on from what caused the Civil War, we will begin studying the Civil War itself.
All laboratory safety rules must be followed. These are reviewed and students sign a contract. Some labs require long hair to be pulled back.
Girls with long hair are expected to have a hair accessory available for this purpose. Proper handling of lab materials is a must
A 6-inch (15 centimeter) ruler is required. These are used often for measuring and for creating data tables and graphs.
Science Fair is part of the 7th Grade curriculum. A Student Manual is available for download on the Joliet Diocese Science Teachers Association website.
Students are guided in each part of this long-term project. The process begins early in Fall and culminates with our school Science Fair in mid-January.
