Here is a suggested list of content standards for review. Please review each week's or weeks' suggested content review standards. Although the general standard items will be listed here in the announcements section, the use of other webpage sections may be required to complete the suggested content review.
03/30/2020 - 04/03/2020
6.E.1: Understand the earth/moon/sun system, and the properties, structures and predictable motions of celestial bodies in the Universe.
6.E.2: Understand the structure of the earth and how interactions of constructive and destructive forces have resulted in changes in the surface of the Earth over time and the effects of the lithosphere on humans.
7.E.1: Understand how the cycling of matter (water and gases) in and out of the atmosphere relates to Earth’s atmosphere, weather and climate, and the effects of the atmosphere on humans.
04/06/2020 - 04/17/2020
6.E.2.3 and 6.E.2.4 Understand the structure of the earth and how interactions of constructive and destructive forces have resulted in changes in the surface of the Earth over time and the effects of the lithosphere on humans.
6.L.1 Understand the structures, processes and behaviors of plants that enable them to survive and reproduce.
6.L.2 Understand the flow of energy through ecosystems and the responses of populations to the biotic and abiotic factors in their environment.
7.L.1.1: Compare the structures of life functions of single-celled organisms that carry out all the basic functions of life including Euglena Amoeba Paramecium Volvox
7.L.1.2: Compare the structures and functions of plant and animal cells, including major organelles (cell membrane, cell wall, nucleus, chloroplasts, mitochondria, and vacuoles).
7.L.1.3: Summarize the hierarchical organization of multi-cellular organisms from cells to tissues to organs to systems to organisms
04/20/2020 - 05/01/2020
6.L.2.3: Summarize how the abiotic factors (such as temperature, water, sunlight, and soil quality) of biomes (freshwater, marine, forest, grasslands, desert, Tundra) affect the ability of organisms to grow, survive and /or create their own food through photosynthesis.
6.P.1: Understand the properties of waves and the wavelike property of energy in earthquakes, light, and sound waves.
6.P.2: Understand the structure, classifications and physical properties of matter.
05/04/2020 - 05/15/2020
7.L.1: Understand the processes, structures, and functions of living organisms that enable them to survive, reproduce, and carry out the basic functions of life.
7.L.2: Understand the relationship of the mechanisms of cellular reproduction, patterns of inheritance, and external factors to potential variation among offspring.
Each student will need a three subject, plastic cover, spiral notebook that has pockets for class.
Also, colored pencils, pens that do not bleed through the page and scissors are recommended.
