Ms. Kolberg - Room 72

Welcome to Science for 7th & 8th Graders!

Hi Everyone,

My name is Leisa Kolberg and this is my 16th year of teaching at St. Vincent de Paul. I majored in Biology and Secondary Education. I have my Masters in Technology from Lesley University. I previously have taught seventh and eighth graders at St. Pius/St. Leo School and Holy Ghost School. 

Seventh grade science is a year of life science.  We will be using Google classroom and the code to get into that class is:  lxzvumu
We will begin the year with studying some of the the smallest forms of life - Protists, Monerans and Fungi.  From there we will progress into cell structure and function and advance into the human body and genetics.  At the end of the year we will compare human and amphibian anatomy and physiology and dissect the frog.  Click here for helpful sites.

Eighth graders focus on physical science. We will be using Google classroom and the code to connect to that class is:  skqtcwc.  We will start out the year with the study of waves - both sound and light.  Chemistry is next, focusing on basic atomic structure and chemical bonding.   A unit on force and motion will finish the year. Our final activity is a rocket lab where students build, launch and record information about their flights.  Click here to go to some helpful sites for eighth grade science.
The seventh grade teaching assistant is Mrs. Houlihan.

For fun I have included a few sites that involve thinking games.  They are fun to try any time of the year! Click here for these.  Good luck! 
If you have any questions, please feel free to email me by clicking here or by calling the school at 402- 492 - 2111.
