1 IDAHO CONTENT STANDARDS GRADE 7 LIFE SCIENCE Students are expected to know content and apply skills from previous grades. Scientific reasoning and problem solving processes should be incorporated throughout all science standards. Students should use a variety of methods such as the Scientific Method, symbols, diagrams, charts, graphs and models to communicate scientific findings and to explain science reasoning and concepts.
