Life Science

Life science is a great introductory science class for grades 6-8 that will introduce students to the concepts of biology first semester and expand on the human body systems second semester. Students will learn about the organization of biology, molecules important to life, cells, DNA, heredity and genetics, types of living organisms and the human skeletal, muscular, integumentary, nervous, circulatory, digestive, respiratory, and urinary systems. Students will complete weekly classwork that may include some reading, worksheets, activities such as creating models or diagrams, etc., and also some lab activities. Students will complete a quiz approximately every three weeks over material being learned in class.

Lab activities: Students will receive a lab kit in the mail during the first couple of weeks of classes that includes lab items that will be needed during the year.  There will also be some perishable or common household items that students will supply themselves from home such as salt, food coloring, tape, etc. (a complete list will be given in class).  The kit will be approximately $40, and the teacher will give instructions for paying this lab fee once class begins.
