Week 1 September 8th - 11th Asynchronous Learning (fancy term for, completing work I assign to you and sending it back to me in completed form) Temporarily under construction. Don't worry about this subject right now. I will explain when I "see" you on Monday.
By Grade 7, students realize that humans have many impacts on the environment. In the study of this topic, they will analyse some of these impacts and their consequences, while reflecting upon their personal responsibility to protect the environment. During investigations, the students will observe existing ecosystems and investigate factors that may affect balances within the system. Students will learn that ecosystems consist of communities of plants and animals that are dependent on each other as well as on the non-living parts of the environment. Care must be taken to ensure that all students, including students with special education needs, have compa- rable opportunities to explore the natural world.
