    Department / Grade: Science 7
    Welcome to the MMS 2020-2021 school year!  This is my 24nd year of teaching science at MMS (I was formerly Mary Erickson).  Prior to coming to MMS, I went to college at NDSU in Fargo. I love learning and apparently just can't get enough.  :-)  I'm looking forward to a great year with lots of hands-on and active learning.  Please feel free to contact me at any time!
    Seventh Grade Science revolves around mainly the living world (i.e. biology).  We start the year exploring the scientific method (not only the steps involved but the keys to making observations, measuring accurately, etc.).  Other topics throughout the year include ecology, cells, cellular respiration & photosynthesis, genetics & evolution, classifying living organisms, viruses & bacteria, and, finally, animals & body systems.   
    7th Grade Science Wish List (always needed for the classroom):  Antibacterial wipes, Kleenex, pencils
