Standards and Objectives
SC.7.4: Students will: demonstrate knowledge, understanding and applications of scientific facts, concepts, principles, theories and models as delineated in the objectives, demonstrate an understanding of the interrelationships among physics, chemistry, biology and the earth and space sciences, and apply knowledge, understanding and skills of science subject matter/concepts to daily life experiences.
SC.7.4.2: identify and describe disease causing organisms (such as bacteria, viruses, protozoa, fungi) and the diseases they cause.
SC.7.4.5: construct simple keys to differentiate among living things with similar characteristics.
SC.7.4.7: evaluate how the different adaptations and life cycles of plants and animals help them to survive in different niches and environments (e.g., inherited and acquired adaptations).
SC.7.4.8: analyze how changes in the environment have led to reproductive adaptations through natural selection.
SC.7.4.9: relate how an organism’s behavior response is a combination of heredity and environment.
SC.7.4.10: analyze the differences in the growth, development and reproduction of flowering and nonflowering plants.
SC.7.4.11: predict the trends of interdependent populations if one of the limiting factors is changed.
SC.7.4.16: write word equations to describe chemical reactions.
SC.7.4.17: describe the behavior of individual particles and verify the conservation of matter (e.g., melting and freezing of pure substances).
SC.7.4.18: trace the energy flow during phase changes
SC.7.4.19: define characteristics of light and sound waves and describe how sound is perceived by the ear and light is perceived by the eye.
SC.7.4.22: explain conservation of matter and energy qualitatively and recognize that energy can be changed from one form to another.
SC.7.4.23: perform experiments with simple machines to demonstrate the relationship between forces and distance; use vectors to represent motion.
SC.7.4.24: explain the effect of gravity on falling objects (e.g., g= 9.8m/s2, object dropped on earth and on moon).
SC.7.4.25: analyze motion graphically and use vectors to represent direction of motion.
SC.7.4.26: depict and relate causes of tides, surfs and currents.
SC.7.4.28: interpret and create topographical maps.
SC.7.4.30: explain and model using manipulatives how the Earth’s tilt and revolution determine the seasonal changes and weather patterns.
SC.7.4.31: recognize the changes involved in the life cycle of a star.
SC.7.4.33: compare the characteristics of the members of our solar system.
