Seventh graders at Wyndcroft take on the challenge of more rigorous work as they explore their subject areas in even greater depth. They factor polynomials, learn about classical deities, master passé compose, and debate the causes of the American Revolution. A number of changes also take place in Science class. Students now have a weekly double period to complete laboratory experiments and dissections. In addition, seventh graders engage in a science fair research project. Teachers work carefully with students as they complete their experiments, record data, prepare display boards, and submit formal papers for both Science and Language Arts.
