7.MS-LS: Life Science

7.MS-LS1: From Molecules to Organisms: Structures and Processes

7.MS-LS1-4: Construct an explanation based on evidence for how characteristic animal behaviors and specialized plant structures increase the probability of successful reproduction of animals and plants.

Flower Pollination
Honeybee Hive

7.MS-LS2: Ecosystems: Interactions, Energy, and Dynamics

7.MS-LS2-1: Analyze and interpret data to provide evidence for the effects of periods of abundant and scarce resources on the growth of organisms and the size of populations in an ecosystem.

Food Chain
Prairie Ecosystem
Rabbit Population by Season

7.MS-LS2-2: Describe how relationships among and between organisms in an ecosystem can be competitive, predatory, parasitic, and mutually beneficial and that these interactions are found across multiple ecosystems.

Food Chain
Prairie Ecosystem

7.MS-LS2-3: Develop a model to describe that matter and energy are transferred among living and nonliving parts of an ecosystem and that both matter and energy are conserved through these processes.

Pond Ecosystem

7.MS-LS2-4: Analyze data to provide evidence that disruptions (natural or human-made) to any physical or biological component of an ecosystem can lead to shifts in all its populations.

Food Chain

7.MS-PS: Physical Science

7.MS-PS3: Energy

7.MS-PS3-1: Construct and interpret data and graphs to describe the relationships among kinetic energy, mass, and speed of an object.

Air Track
Energy of a Pendulum
Inclined Plane - Sliding Objects
Roller Coaster Physics
Sled Wars
Trebuchet

7.MS-PS3-3: Apply scientific principles of energy and heat transfer to design, construct, and test a device to minimize or maximize thermal energy transfer.

Feel the Heat

7.MS-PS3-5: Present evidence to support the claim that when the kinetic energy of an object changes, energy is transferred to or from the object.

Air Track
Energy Conversion in a System
Sled Wars

7.MS-ETS: Technology/Engineering

7.MS-ETS1: Engineering Design

7.MS-ETS1-2: Evaluate competing solutions to a given design problem using a decision matrix to determine how well each meets the criteria and constraints of the problem. Use a model of each solution to evaluate how variations in one or more design features, including size, shape, weight, or cost, may affect the function or effectiveness of the solution.

Trebuchet

7.MS-ETS1-4: Generate and analyze data from iterative testing and modification of a proposed object, tool, or process to optimize the object, tool, or process for its intended purpose.
