• Welcome to 7th Grade

    Science and Social Studies 

     

    Parents and Students:

    An Important Note about work and grades!

    Some of you have been emailing me your work throughout the shutdown. Thank you for your hard work.  However, some have not emailed me their completed assignments, so, if you have done your work on paper there will be a drop off at the school during the feeding program.  Please have my name, your name, and the title of each assignment with its subject number for clarity. I can not guarantee you get credit unless these things are on your work. All of this work can only help your grade increase.   Third term grade results will be duplicated to the 4th term grade results if a student does not turn in any assignments. Warning: if you had a low or failing grade last term please do something and turn it in. We are coming to the end of the last month of school, please try your best and complete as many assignments you can. Your hard work will only improve your grade. Thanks, Mr. Grant.

    Review of the year assignments for the 4th term.  Please email all responses to grantj@wcde.org or put your responses on a piece of notebook paper with the subject (Science or Social Studies), the title of the assignment, your full name, and the number and answers of the problems completed. Please use Google and your internet access to find credible information that will help you find definitions, readings, illustrations, charts, and graphic organizers to complete all these assignments.  Thanks and Good Luck Mr. Grant

     

                                                                

  • Complete each assignment for Science and Social Studies by labeling your emailed document or notebook paper with a Subject Heading SCIENCE or Social Studies, with the TITLE of the assignment, your full name, and date.  Please write neatly and legibly. Below you will find a list of assignments to complete and review before you return in three weeks. Please complete them all and email them to me at grantj@gmail.com or bring them back completed when you return. Take your time and do a good job.  Utilize the internet and google search for anything that can help you prepare. I will categorize your tasks by subject, academic standard and topic.  Do your best, Thanks Mr. Grant.

      Social Studies History Assignment is to record history.

            Our normal days are suddenly not so normal and now, our lives stop us and lead us to wonder about our experiences and our feelings on many passing moments.  This week's social studies project is to record history in a different format each day what life is like for you, your family and friends; it will, of course, not be routine writing and composing. That’s the point. There is much that all of us and each of us have already experienced in the past few weeks that is shocking, unexpected, unpredictable, unknowable, new; much that we have not felt before and not seen. What is it like to live today knowing that we do not know what tomorrow and the day after will bring? 

      I suggest that you keep records in different forms of your own choosing, a journal, a blog, an e-portfolio, a short iPhone film, a series of artworks, a short story, poems, a series of haikus – of your life in these unprecedented days. Each individual perspective is valuable and adds to the whole.

      My suggestion for the week is below, but you have the liberty to elaborate to whatever degree you need to.  We are in a moment of history that one day hopefully we will look back on and say we survived the coronavirus of 2020.  Be detailed, including the media, how life has changed for you, ways to communicate with others, safety precautions, etc.

      1. Monday: Research facts about Corona Virus online.  

      https://www.nationalgeographic.com/science/health-and-human-body/human-diseases/coronavirus/

      https://kids.nationalgeographic.com/explore/science/facts-about-coronavirus/

      Journal about and define the CoronaVirus.  Where did it come from? How did it spread so quickly? Define the phrase “lower the curve”. Discuss the precaution people are taking?  Shortages of supplies. Why is it considered a pandemic? What do the WHO and CDC stand for?


      1. Tuesday: Journal how drastic life has changed for you and your family. Minimum half a page! My expectation is one full page. (ideas to discuss: school, friends, Toilet paper, lack of food, and the grocery store, living at home 24/7, things you do to not go insane, etc.)

      1. Wednesday: Draw a scene of the Coronavirus's effects on society. Use color, be detailed, tell a story with your art. (ideas scenes to draw: hospitals, grocery stores, empty streets, etc) Take a picture of it and send it to me.

      1. Thursday: Create a poem.  You may choose a haiku or a limerick. Be creative and invoke emotions such as fear, uncertainty, frustration, etc. to make your poem come alive.

      A traditional Japanese haiku is a three-line poem with seventeen syllables, written in a 5/7/5 syllable count. Often focusing on images from nature, haiku emphasizes simplicity, intensity, and directness of expression.

      A limerick is a stanza of five lines, with the first, second and fifth rhyming with one another.


      1. Friday: Make a TIMELINE of the Corona Virus to date.

       https://www.nytimes.com/article/coronavirus-timeline.html

      Finally, put it all together in a book.  Take all your assignments from this week to make a booklet and record of this moment in history.  You can use construction paper, typing paper, notebook paper or card stock to hole punch each page and tie it together.  Create a book cover and title that explains what it is, such as: “How the Corona Virus Changed My Life”, “My journal during the Corona Virus”, make up something catchy, etc.   Enjoy the weekend be safe, Mr. Grant.

    22. Let's look at explorer, Juan Ponce de Leon! Get some background information here then take the quizScavenger hunt question: What was Ponce de Leon looking for in Florida? Write your answers either on a piece of paper or a Google Doc. Google Doc, share it with me so I can see how awesome you are :) 

     

    23. Henry Hudson will be the last explorer we look at. Read about him here then take the quizScavenger hunt question: What happened to Henry Hudson? Write your answers either on a piece of paper or a Google Doc. Google Doc, share it with me so I can see how amazing you are :) 

     

    24. Today will be a little different. I want to you research the following tools used by explorers and explain their purpose (ie. what did the tool do?): compass, caravel, astrolabe, and Harrison’s chronometer. No scavenger hunt question. Write your answers either on a piece of paper or a Google Doc, share it with me so I can see how astounding you are :) 

     

    25. Up to this point, almost all Europeans were blissfully unaware that there was more land to their west. However, that changed with Christopher Columbus, and he started the exploration and colonization of the Americas. Read about him here. Then, test your knowledge by taking this quiz. Write your answers either on a piece of paper or a Google Doc share it with me so I can see how astonishing you are :) Scavenger hunt question: Although Columbus is credited with the discovery, there was actually a European in North America prior to Columbus. Who was this European?

     If you do one out of ten you will receive 10%.  You would have to do at least 8 out of 10 to get 80%.  If you do them all you will definitely get 100%.   However, if you do not do but one assignment I can not enter a grade of 10%, so, your grade will stay the same as the 3rd nine weeks grade.  However, if you want to improve your grade you must do the entire week's work.  All assignments completed will definitely improve your grade. BE SURE TO COMPLETE AN ENTIRE WEEK of assignments!

    I am so proud of you for all the hard work.  Some of you did a wonderful job of increasing your grade by completing each week's assignments.  

    Your grade is already in...so if you see a problem please email me so I can correct any errors.

     

    May 4th - 8th

    All assignments for me beyond May 4th are for fun.  No Grades will be given on these assignments. So, if you want to improve your grade for the 4th term, STOP and go back to complete any of the assignments prior to May 4th.  Remember, grades are for the week, so, complete the entire week of work to maximize your grade.  If you only do one Brainpop assignment for the week it will not improve your grade and I can't put in a lower grade.  However, if you do the entire week's work this will definitely improve your grade. BE SURE TO COMPLETE AN ENTIRE WEEK!

    I am so proud of you for all the hard work.  Some of you did a wonderful job of increasing your grade by completing each week's assignments.
