Welcome to Mr. Poston's 7th Grade Science website. We will be covering topics related to Force and Motion, Atmosphere and Weather, Human Body Systems, and Genetics. The Purpose of 7th grade Science is to provide laboratory experiences and opportunities to demonstrate how science is constant, historic, probabilistic, and replicable. Although there are no fixed steps that all scientists follow, scientific investigations usually involve collections of relevant evidence, the use of logical reasoning, the application of imagination to devise hypotheses, and explanations to make sense of collected evidence. Student engagement in scientific investigation provides background for understanding the nature of scientific inquiry. In addition, the science process skills necessary for inquiry are acquired through active experience. The process skills support development of reasoning and problem-solving ability and are the core of scientific methodologies.
I look forward to working with students and their families and making this the best year possible. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns please feel free to contact me. Go Generation Z.
