Although our children are many years apart in age, homeschooling allows them to spend the day learning and having fun together. Their schedules give them the time for sports, field trips, family vacations, and time with friends. We all enjoy one another.

Seventh Grade Curriculum

Seventh graders gain a global perspective through a study of World History, from the Age of Enlightenment to the present.

Seventh Grade Curriculum Books

While immersed in subjects such as Far Eastern empires, the Industrial Revolution, and the Space Age, students will reflect and write about the people behind these events. Studying the literature of the time encourages a flexibility of thinking and perspective. The Language Arts curriculum emphasizes composition skills and helps students express themselves clearly and creatively in writing. Students continue to develop their grammar skills through a detailed study of sentence structure and common writing pitfalls. Art activities include art history, world music, pen and ink drawings, and collage.

In Earth Science, students make observations and perform experiments in astronomy, geology, meteorology, matter, and energy. Emphasis is placed on learning about the Earth’s natural resources and thinking through practical solutions to current environmental issues. In conjunction with experiential explorations, students write persuasive essays and conduct research.

Math 7

The Math 7 curriculum introduces square roots, exponents, signed numbers, mean and median, formulas for area and volume, and angle measurement. In addition to further work with percents, ratios, and probabilities, students engage in a comprehensive review of all previous skills. Students enrolled in the seventh grade may elect to take Pre-Algebra or Algebra with teacher approval.
