Life Science Preview

SEMESTER 1

Life Science will begin in the first six weeks discussing class procedures and safety, the cycling of matter and energy,  and finally ecological succession. During the second six weeks we will cover the topics; catastrophic events, weathering, erosion, deposition, and watershed. Following the second six weeks there will be a two day CBA exam. In the third six weeks we will learn about biomes, biodiversity and genetics. At the end of semester 1 there will be a Common Semester Exam (CSE). 

SEMESTER 2

Life Science will pick up the second semester and fourth six weeks studying dichotomous keys, adaptations, variations, and responses to stimuli/forces. The fith six weeks will cover characteristics for life and cells. Finally, the sixth six weeks will end with body systems and an intro into 8th grade Chemistry. There will also be a CSE for semester 2.
