Seventh-grade science offers a unique and challenging learning experience for students! Topics explored allow students to grapple not only with engaging scientific concepts and experiments but also with worldview issues! Students are increasingly challenged to complete independent research projects, design their own experiments, and share and present their learning to others. Each kit is designed to integrate the Modernized BC Curriculum Core Competencies: Communication, Creative and Critical Thinking, and Personal and Social Skills/Knowledge.
Topics explored in our seventh-grade science kits include Energy and Electromagnetism, Fossil Record and Climate Change, Matter and Elements, and Creation and Evolution. Each kit also integrates concepts in numeracy, literacy, art, technology, and design thinking! Kits can be completed in any order based on student interest and availability of materials.
Science kits are designed to be completed over a period of 6-8 weeks depending on the number of activities selected. Each seventh-grade science kit is divided into sections based on driving questions. You will have the opportunity to work through each kit section by choosing your own materials, projects and activities to create a unique learning experience with your child. We have worked diligently to choose an array of exciting learning opportunities for every learner! The materials, projects, and activities contained in the kit have been carefully selected to address the big ideas, competencies, and content of BC’s Modernized Curriculum.
