This calendar: grade 7 science assignments.

Term 3 learning outcomes for Earth’s crust (Earth & space science):

• compare the characteristics of the Earth’s core, mantle, and crust, and describe the formation of rocks
• analyse the dynamics of tectonic plate movement and landmass formation
• explain how the Earth’s surface changes over time

Here is a helpful multimedia science glossary Get credit for your work! Use the correct heading on your assignments (see example)Template for science write-upsNature of Things documentary on The Teenage Brain, interesting for parents and teens (or near teens) to watch together.
