CURRICULUM ROAD MAP


Core Questions
How do scientists gather knowledge about the world? How do you determine which situations can and cannot be represented algebraically? How does energy move in the environment? In what ways do living things interact with each other and the environment?

UNIT 1
How do scientists investigate the world around us? Quarter 1 KEY CONCEPT 1. Scientists use observations and questions to approach problems in the world. Scientists design and conduct experiments to learn about the world around us. Scientists examine evidence to answer questions. Scientific knowledge changes over time. Tables and graphs are used to organize data and help make conclusions. Scientists share their experimental results to help expand scientific knowledge. FOCUS CONTENT Lab equipment and safety Measurement Hypotheses Controlled experiments Variables Graphing Fields of science Development of scientific knowledge Scientific theories and laws Analyzing data Developing conclusions Communicating scientific findings BENCHMARKS SC.7.N.1.1 SC.7.N.1.2 SC.7.N.1.3 SC.7.N.1.4 SC.7.N.1.5 SC.7.N.1.6 SC.7.N.1.7 SC.7.N.2.1 SC.7.N.3.1

What is the role of energy in our world? KEY CONCEPT 1. We rely on energy in all parts of our lives. Energy can change forms but is always conserved. Temperature and heat are not the same. Heat energy is transferred from hotter to cooler objects. FOCUS CONTENT BENCHMARKS SC.7.P.11.1 SC.7.P.11.2 SC.7.P.11.3 SC.7.P.11.4

Forms of energy The differences between heat


and temperature

How do waves move through the natural world? KEY CONCEPT 1. 2. 3. Waves transmit energy. Waves travel in predictable ways. Light is made up of waves we can see and waves we cannot see. FOCUS CONTENT BENCHMARKS SC.7.P.10.1 SC.7.P.10.2 SC.7.P.10.3

Wavelength, frequency, speed,


energy Reflection, refraction, and absorption Transverse, longitudinal, and surface waves Electromagnetic waves

How does the interior of Earth affect its surface? KEY CONCEPT 1. Rocks provide us with information about the history of Earth. Earth has changed over a long period of time. Earths crust is broken into pieces that float on the surface. FOCUS CONTENT Rock cycle Law of Superposition Radioactive dating Geologic time The layers of Earth Theory of Continental Drift Plate tectonics BENCHMARKS SC.7.E.6.1 SC.7.E.6.2 SC.7.E.6.3 SC.7.E.6.4 SC.7.N.3.2

How does Earth continue to change over time? KEY CONCEPT 1. Movement at plate boundaries can quickly change the surface of Earth. 2. Movement at plate boundaries can also change the surface of Earth slowly. 3. Earth has changed over time. FOCUS CONTENT Plate boundaries Convection currents in the mantle Volcanoes and earthquakes Formation of mountains, trenches, faults, and islands Human impact BENCHMARKS SC.7.E.6.5 SC.7.E.6.7 SC.7.E.6.4 SC.7.E.6.6

What is the history of life on Earth? KEY CONCEPT 1. The history of life is found in the fossil record. Within a population, some individuals have traits that make them more likely to survive and reproduce. Over time, the traits in a population can change. Species can become endangered or extinct due to many factors. FOCUS CONTENT BENCHMARKS SC.7.N.1.5 SC.7.N.1.6 SC.7.L.15.1 SC.7.L.15.2 SC.7.L.15.3 SC.7.L.17.2

How do living things depend on each other and the environment? KEY CONCEPT 1. Ecosystems balance living and nonliving things. Food chains and webs show how energy flows through an ecosystem. Organisms can help or harm each other. Populations can change over time. Human activity can change ecosystems. FOCUS CONTENT Level of environmental organization Trophic levels Food chains and webs Symbiosis Competition Limiting factors Conserving natural resources Level of environmental organization BENCHMARKS SC.7.N.1.1 SC.7.E.6.6 SC.7.L.17.1 SC.7.L.17.2 SC.7.L.17.3

Why do we sometimes have our parents traits, but not always? KEY CONCEPT 1. Every living organism has genes that determine which traits are passed on from parents to children. Organisms with one biological parent have the same traits as their parents. Organisms with two biological parents have some traits from each parent. It is possible to predict whether certain traits are passed from parents to children. Technology can be used to change traits in organisms. FOCUS CONTENT BENCHMARKS SC.7.N.1.1 SC.7.N.1.5 SC.7.N.1.6 SC.7.N.3.2 SC.7.L.16.1 SC.7.L.16.2 SC.7.L.16.3 SC.7.L.16.4
