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. Students are reading more critically, applying knowledge from multiple sources, and developing the skills they’ll need to accurately interpret an ever-more-opaque media landscape.
