In seventh grade, students will build on ideas and knowledge from previous grades to:

  • Develop models of matter to illustrate how molecules are made of different types of atoms that can be rearranged during chemical reactions to form new molecules with different properties.

  • Construct and interpret data models to describe the relationships between kinetic energy, mass and the speed of an object. 

  • Develop evidence-based arguments to support the claim that when energy is transferred to or from an object, the kinetic energy of the object changes. 

  • Develop models to illustrate the roles of photosynthesis and cellular respiration in the cycling of matter and flow of energy into and out of organisms. 

  • Analyze and interpret data to construct evidence-based arguments that changes in the availability of resources can affect organism populations within an ecosystem.

  • Design methods for keeping track of and minimizing human impact on the environment. 


The order of the standards at any grade level is not meant to imply a sequence of topics and should be considered flexible for the organization of any course. 



Vertical Learning Progressions


Descriptions of disciplinary core ideas, crosscutting concepts, and science and engineering practices students are learning throughout their K-12 education. 


Sample Unit Progression


This year-long progression provides a sample vision for engaging students in meaningful, connected science learning. Unit samples offer examples of essential questions, phenomena, connections to prior learning, and a 3-dimensional narrative for what learning might look like in the classroom.


Bundled Standards Analysis 

Examples of how to group standards based on common science ideas. Analysis is provided for each grouping of standards and is provided in a manner to support deep understanding of goals and expectations for the teacher and student. Recommendations are not intended to be an exhaustive listing of instructional possibilities.


Engagement Strategies 


Suggested instructional practices that engage students with figuring out science ideas.
