Welcome to Ms. Frank’s Science Class
This is a primarily a Life Science course. We will be exploring Science through activities and labs. The topics are set by Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). The following is an outline of the topics we should be covering.
- Structure, Function, and Information Processing
- Growth, Development, and Reproduction of Organisms
- Matter and Energy in Organisms and Ecosystems
- Interdependent Relationships in Ecosystems
- Natural Selection and Adaptations
For a more detailed look at the Performance Standards that we will address this school year, please visit the NGSS website, www.nextgenscience.org.
I am passionate about Science and education I hope to ignite a similar passion in my students through hands on engaging lessons that require deep thought and perseverance. My catch phrase: “GIVE ME MORE!” I have VERY high expectations for each of my students. I feel that 7th grade students are capable of making mature decisions and creating exceptional work. My expectations are:
I expect that students will follow directions quickly and accurately and obey all class and school rules as well as procedures. I expect that students are prepared for class every day and participate in all classroom activities. I expect that students turn in work of integrity that was completed with great thought, detail and effort. I expect that students will work cooperatively with all peers, myself, and any other adult that enters the classroom.
