7th Grade Science, Mrs. Matthis

This semester, our class will study Chemistry


1. Chemical Reactions

2. Atoms and Bonding

3. Acids, Bases, and Solutions

4. Exploring Materials


Chemistry is the study of the properties of matter and how matter changes. 

In this book, we will study the basics of chemistry.  Subject topics such as, physical and chemical changes, the periodic table, valence electrons, acids and bases, ions and covalent bonding, and solving chemical equations.

In chapter 2, the students will have a project using the Periodic Table.  At this point, the students will have the knowledge of "reading" the periodic table.  The project will be done mostly in school with some of the construction done at home.  This is a fun project and the kids really enjoy it.


In class, the students are working on the Bohr's model and how to find the valence electrons on the Periodic Table.  The students are starting to learn how the table works and how to use it as a reference.
