Last Week: Students have been working on adding fractions with like and unlike denominators. Students are learning several techniques for solving fraction equations including using fraction strips, pattern blocks and figuring out the LCM.
Next Week: We will be using the same techniques but with subtraction.
Homework: Students from 7D and 7E need to bring in all quizzes signed: Circumference, Parallelograms and Planet Earth quiz.
Last Week: Students have been exploring Heat and Temperature - we have started looking at the Particle Model of Matter.
Next Week: Students in 7A, B and C will be doing expansion and contraction labs. Students in 7D and 7E will be building their energy efficient homes.
Homework: Students from 7D and 7E will be starting their “Efficiency Home” project on Tuesday, May 22nd. They need to bring in all supplies on Tuesday. The following Tuesday, May 29th, they will present their model homes, pamphlet and blueprint to their classmates.
Last Week: Students worked on the area of a circle. Ms. Heck and Ms. Rudolph's classes were working on the circle art assignment.
This Week: We will be looking at interpreting circle graphs and drawing circle graphs. Check out the video.
Homework: 7A, B and C circle art due on Monday, May 7th (track students need to hand this in BEFORE they leave!) . 4.6 also due for 7A.
Last Week: Classes are wrapping up the Planet Earth Unit. Some classes watched a Bill Nye video introducing Heat and Temperature.
This Week: We will be starting Heat and Temperature. Students will begin with stations.
Homework: Ms. Pond's classes will have a Planet Earth Unit Final on Thursday, May 9th.
Debate: This afternoon, students not attending the track meet will be preparing a debate on various topics including climate change, marijuana legalization and gun control.

Last Week: Students in 7A, B and C wrote a quiz on the area of triangles, rectangles and parallelograms. Students in 7D and E learned about the triangle and parallelogram formula.
This Week: Students in 7D and 7E will write an area quiz on Thursday, May 3rd. Students in 7A, B and C will work on their circle art assignments.
HOMEWORK: Several students in 7C and 7B have been asked to redo and/or finish their fraction art assignment. This will be due on Monday, April 30th.
Last Week: Classes talked about fossil fuels and researched the different points of views on the Trans Canada pipeline debate.
This Week: Students in 7A and C will debate the pipeline. There will be a unit quiz next week as well on all topics. Students will be given information to study.
IMPORTANT INFO: On Tuesday, May 1st a presenter will be coming in to all grade 7 classes to teach the Human Sexuality component of the health curriculum. Students who do not have permission will be doing an alternate assignment in a different classroom.
Last Week: Students have been learning about parallelograms and triangles. We are practicing writing the formulas, substituting and answering questions with units squared. ***Check out the area video below!
This Week: Students in 7D and 7E will finish up circumference, area and diameter. Classes 7A, 7B and 7C will be finishing up triangle and parallelograms and moving on the area of a circle.
Homework: 7A - Parallelogram and Triangles Quiz on Monday, April 23rd.
7B and C = 4.3 and 4.4 sheets are due on Monday. ***Circumference quiz needs to be corrected AND signed!
7B and C= Triangle and Parallelogram Quiz on Wednesday, April 25th. Students should review formulas for area of a square, rectangle, triangle and parallelogram.
All students should have a geometry set.
Last Week: Students have been looking at mountain ranges and the categories of mountains. We have been starting to look at the geological timeline and the different eras. We also are starting talking about fossils - how they are formed, what they are, etc. ***Check out the video below!
This Week: We will continue looking at the different eras and significant events in each era. Students will start looking at fossil fuels. They will define words in their personal journals and debate the KinderMorgan Pipeline.
Homework: 7A - Geological timelines due Monday!
7B and 7C = Geological timelines due Tuesday!
On Friday, April 27th the school will be completing its second design challenge. For this design challenge, students should be bringing in some of the following items:
- cardboard, egg cartons, nails, screws, elastics, dixie cups, dowels, paper towel and toilet paper rolls
Last Week: Students in 7A, B and C wrote a quiz on circumference which included solving radius, diameter and circumference problems. 7D and 7E started learning about circumference and will continue next week.
This Week: Students will start learning about parallelograms and how to figure out the area. (Check out video below!) ***Students need a geometry kit for this unit!!!***
Last Week: We talked about earthquakes and volcanoes and learned several new vocabulary words including: fault, epicentre, normal, reverse and strike-slip earthquakes, magma, pipe, vent, dormant, surface, primary and secondary waves. We used longitude and latitude lines to plot major earthquake and volcano events that have happened on Earth.
This Week: We will begin looking at mountains. Students will plot the major mountain ranges on a world map and we will learn about the different categories of mountains, as well as the different ways mountains can be formed.
Here are some extra practice worksheets with answers for the next unit.
