During the 2nd quarter we will continue to look at the meaning of God's Kingdom in Unit 2. We will focus on topics such as who the servants were/are, working for justice, prayer and then begin Unit 3; The Christian Life.

We continue to reflect on topics from the Youth Catechism, Jesus Always, and numerous other resources to reinforce our knowledge and understanding of our faith. 7th grade also uses information from the series Faith First.

During the 2nd quarter and into the 3rd we will look at the following topics:

Introduction to the Human Body-organization, interactions with systems, and homeostasis

Controlling Body Process-individual systems such as: skeletal, muscular, skin, nervous, and endocrine

As students grow in maturity it is important to understand how our bodies work and be able to relay information to parents or doctors using proper terminology if something is wrong.

Vocabulary--Units are completed independently over a 2 week span, with the last day of the second week being a test day. Parts of units are assigned in chunks, and students should be writing due dates for each section in their planners.

English--We are doing an intense review on the usage of commas and other punctuation and using what we have learned in writing. Our next area of study will be verbs.

Literature--Elements of plot and characterization are two areas we will be focusing on during the first quarter. We will be reading a few stories in our literature book before reading a novel.
