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

Welcome back!  I hope you are ready to start your year in Life Science.  This is a fun year in science!  We will start with the scientific method and will be designing expriments AND performing them.  During this we will learn about independent and dependent variables, constants, controls, hypotheses, data collection, graphing, etc.  So much to do!  Let's get started!!

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



As with all material found on the Internet, teachers and parents should be very careful
in allowing students to explore these sites unless direct supervision is provided.
