Educational Activities and Teaching Resources for 7th Grade

7th graders, or as we like to call them, pre-high schoolers, are getting serious about their scholarly development. Multiplying like crazy, dividing and conquering different types of numbers, and solving equations like Sherlock Holmes on a case. These students will leave with a strong foundation in algebra, geometry, and trigonometry.

As for reading, 7th graders are learning a thing or two about what happens between the lines, analyzing complex texts, and starting to write their own literary masterpieces.
