Physical Science MS



This course explores many aspects of science. Students will begin the course by identifying matter as the basic building block of life. Students will then explore the cell and all of its working parts before being introduced to Earth’s organisms and their processes. Finally, students will investigate Earth’s water and atmospheric processes and determine how each produces energy systems. In the second part of Science 7, students will explore structural changes involving the Earth, ranging from the past to the present. This investigation will include the rock cycle, plate tectonics, and mineral formation. Students will inquire about the history of our universe and what it means to live in an Earth, Moon, and Sun system. Students will examine motion, forces, and various types of energy. Finally, students will examine types of sound and light energy. Prerequisites: None
