We started off our chemistry unit by learning about states of matter. We looked at particle theory, we compared different states of matter and we studied the history of our understanding of matter.
In a shortened week of Science, we studied variation in species with a focus on continuous and discontinuous variation. We finished the term in this subject with a review game based around the classification and variation unit.
In Science this week we reviewed the recent exam. We also studied the plant kingdom and looked at the five different groups of plants. Year 7 rounded off the week by completing an EP task on plant classification.
We began a unit this week on variation and classification. Students learned about different phylum and the differences between vertebrates and invertebrates. We rounded off the week with an open book quiz to check what had been learned.
In Science this week, students revised for and sat the Year 7 Science exam. We finished out the week with a fun science-based problem solving activity.
In Science this week we talked about next weeks exam and where the class should focus their study efforts. We tried out some different study techniques and finished the week with some revision games to test their current knowledge.
We had an interesting time in Science this week. We started out by looking at the three different kind of symbiotic relationships in nature. We then moved to studying different kinds of animal adaptations. Students now know the difference between…
In Science, we finished our unit on microorganisms by looking at decomposers. We then started a new unit on living things and their environment. We focussed on important ecological word definitions and how a food chain works.
This week was all about microorganisms. We covered three of the five kingdoms of life: fungi, monera, and protoctista. At the end of the week the students studied viruses and will share their learning with the class during the next…
This week we finished our unit on cells by looking at animal cells and the organelles found inside them. Students sat a Google Classroom quiz based on our last two units on major organ systems and cells.
