Life Science

Welcome to my home page.  This is my 23rd year teaching 7th grade Life Science at THMS.  My room is filled with living or once living things, including a 75 gallon saltwater tank with fish, a shrimp, a sea star, and a crab that is very hard to find!!

This website will focus on Life Science class at THMS. Life science is the study of living things and how they interact. It covers such topics as the characteristics, classification, and behaviors of organisms, and the interactions they have with each other and with the natural environment.

Current Topic of Study

We are really moving along now.  We've just started doing our Biome Menu Projects and will then move on to Human Impact and then cells.  Students are also experimenting with radish seeds right now.  They've completed their first and we will see what they come up with to do for their second project.  It's fun seeing these budding scientists.

Science Opportunities:  Check out this webpage for opportunities related to science throughout the school year or during the summer.
