    Science 7

 

7th Grade Science Curriculum 
 

Topics Include:  From Molecules to Organisms:  Structures and Processes; Ecosystems:  Interactions, Energy, and Dynamics; Heredity:  Inheritance and Variation 
of Traits; Biological Evolution:  Unity and Diversity; Earth’s Place in the Universe 
 
Performance Expectations:  A statement that combines practices, core ideas and crosscutting concepts.  This describes what students should be able to do in 
order to demonstrate they have met the standard. 
 
Three Dimensions: 

 

Scientific and Engineering Practices:  Practices that scientists and engineers engage in to understand the world or solve a problem. 
1. Asking questions (for science) and defining problems (for engineering)  
2. Developing and using models  
3. Planning and carrying out investigations  
4. Analyzing and interpreting data  
5. Using mathematics and computational thinking

7. Engaging in argument from evidence  
8. Obtaining, evaluating and communicating information 

 

Disciplinary Core Ideas:  Concepts in science and engineering that have broad importance within and across disciplines as well as relevance to people’s lives.   
Disciplinary ideas are grouped in four domains. 

 Physical Sciences 

 Life Sciences 

 Space Sciences 

 Engineering Technology and Applications of Science 

 

Crosscutting Concepts:  These have application across all domains of science. 
1. Patterns 

2. Cause and Effect 

3. Scale, Proportion and Quantity 

4. System and System Models 

5. Energy and Matter 

6. Structure and Function 

7. Stability and Change

From Molecules to Organisms: Structures and Processes                                      Grade 7 

Suggested Timeframe: 6‐8 Weeks 

Essential Question: 

● How do the structures of organisms enable life’s functions? 

● How do organisms live, grow, respond to their environment and reproduce? 

● How do organisms obtain and use the matter and energy they need to live and grow? 

● How do organisms detect, process, and use information about the environment? 

Performance Expectation: MS‐LS1‐1 

Conduct an investigation to provide evidence that living things are made of cells; either one cell or many different numbers and types of 

cells.  [Clarification Statement: Emphasis is on developing evidence that living things are made of cells, distinguishing between living and non‐living things, 

and understanding that living things may be made of one cell or many and varied cells. ]

Observable features of the student performance by the end of the course:
1 Identifying the phenomenon under investigation

a From the given investigation plan, students identify and describe* the phenomenon under investigation, which includes the idea that living things
are made up of cells.

b Students identify and describe* the purpose of the investigation, which includes providing evidence for the following ideas: that all living things are
made of cells (either one cell or many different numbers and types of cells) and that the cell is the smallest unit that can be said to be alive.

2 Identifying the evidence to address the purpose of the investigation
a From the given investigation plan, students describe* the data that will be collected and the evidence to be derived from the data,
including:
i. The presence or absence of cells in living and nonliving things.
ii. The presence or absence of any part of a living thing that is not made up of cells.
iii. The presence or absence of cells in a variety of organisms, including unicellular and multicellular organisms.

iv. Different types of cells within one multicellular organism.
b Students describe* how the evidence collected will be relevant to the purpose of the investigation.
3 Planning the investigation
a From the given investigation plan, students describe* how the tools and methods included in the experimental design will provide the evidence

necessary to address the purpose of the investigation, including that due to their small-scale size, cells are unable to be seen with the unaided
eye and require engineered magnification devices to be seen.

b Students describe* how the tools used in the investigation are an example of how science depends on engineering advances.

4 Collecting the data
a According to the given investigation plan, students collect and record data on the cellular composition of living organisms.
