In Math 7 we are learning how to solve equations with the "Hands-On Equations" unit—making learning this important concept concrete and fun! We will return to our study of proportions with our new skills for solving equations and finish the year with solving proportions. In Math 7/8, we are becoming "fluent in functions," learning how to describe a function by table, graph, ordered pairs or in word problems. We will contrast and compare linear and non-linear functions and get more in depth with linear functions. For Math 8, see Team 7-4 Math, Mrs. Stanton. ALL CLASSES WILL HAVE A CUMULATIVE FINAL IN THE LAST PART OF MAY. It will count for one test grade in 4th quarter. We will review two days before the final. 
 In Science, we finished the Life Sciences Unit. We will now study climate change and evolution for the rest of the year. For the Climate Change Unit, we will focus on how Earth has a variety of climates defined by average temperature, precipitation, humidity, air pressure, and wind that have changed over time in a particular location. We will also study how changes in environmental conditions can affect the survival of individual organisms, populations, and entire species. This connects to the Evolution Unit as we study how individual organisms with certain traits are more likely than others to survive and have offspring in specific environments. In this unit, we will also review how multiple lines of evidence show the evolution of organisms over geologic time (a connection to the Earth History Unit). Make sure you stay focused and organized as you finish the last quarter of 7th grade!
Language Arts is wrapping up our poetry performances this week.  We are simultaneously researching the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki using photographs, government websites, and other sources.  Students will engage in debate regarding the use of the atomic bomb.  This will usher us into our final unit of study:  WWII and the Holocaust.  Students will use non-fiction materials to develop background information about the causes of WWII and the rise of Germany after WWI.  With background knowledge in place, students will learn about Holocaust experiences through the reading of Night by Elie Wiesel.
