7th Grade Science Lab Syllabus
Welcome to your 7th grade year at TH Rogers! This syllabus is designed to help you understand the
expectations for 7th grade science lab. I am looking forward to an excellent year with you!
The Science Lab experience is that of discovery. The labs support the learning that takes place not
only in their classroom but also in their daily lives. I firmly believe the Chinese proverb, I hear and I
forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand. In order to accomplish this, students will
participate in a wide range of hands on activities throughout the school year.
Topics we will investigate:
In order to help support classroom learning, we will be doing activities that are a reflection of what is
being covered in the main science classroom. Throughout the year we will do activities that focus on
the units listed below:
Scientific Method (intro to Experimentation),
Safety, and Measurement
Physics (Forces, Energy, and Work)
Interactions of Matter and Energy
Carbon Chemistry & Digestion
Weather & its Impacts
Human Impacts on Water Systems
Solar System & Human Space Travel
