These are all important topics that will be covered in 7th grade Science. It is not a list of every single Science topic that will be covered this year, but most of the topics that will be covered this year are on this list. With prior discussion and approval by your teacher, you may choose another, possibly more specific topic that interests you as long as it is related to one of the general topics on the list. 4.

However, many other search engines and sites can be used, including, but not limited to, bing, google, National Geographic, Brain-pop, Discovery, PBS (Public Broadcasting System), and many other sites, including ones that might be recommended by your teacher.
