Welcome to 7th grade science!
In seventh grade, we learn about all things related to living things. Over the course of the year, you'll explore cells and how they work, genetics, natural selection, and ecosystems. I've loved biology for as long as I can remember, and I'm excited to share it with you.
Nampa School District has adopted a new science curriculum this year, and we will be working through it together. Each unit has new roles for students, and you'll be acting as researchers, medical students, ecologists, engineering interns, and paleontologists to discover more about the natural world.
Hi! My name is Mrs. Sprague, and this is my 6th year at Lone Star. I grew up in the Treasure Valley and earned a degree in chemistry from College of Idaho back when they were Albertson College. I went back to school to get my teaching credentials at Northwest Nazarene University after realizing that middle school science was indeed the place for me. I live with my husband and our son, Elliot, in Boise. Elliot is obsessed with all things related to animals (especially creatures like octopuses, snakes, bats, and other less traditionally lovable species), so I spend a lot of time learning about biology with him outside of school. I adore reading, coffee, music on vinyl, Guru Donuts on Saturday mornings, the farmers' market, keeping a mini jungle of houseplants alive, pool time with my little fish, singing along poorly to Hamilton, and working with middle schoolers. I'm so happy to have you here.
