    Teaching Resources and Bonus


    This science package includes lessons and activities for South Carolina State Standards for Science: Grade 7 - SC.7-2. Cells and Heredity. Within the unit package, you'll find the lessons and activities I use in my own classroom.

    SC.7-2. Cells and Heredity: The student will demonstrate an understanding of the structure and function of cells, cellular reproduction, and heredity. (Life Science)

    This unit includes the following resources:

    7-2.1. Summarize the structures and functions of the major components of plant and animal cells (including the cell wall, the cell membrane, the nucleus, chloroplasts, mitochondria, and vacuoles).

    • Lesson - Cell Structure

    7-2.2. Compare the major components of plant and animal cells.

    • Lesson - Cell Structure
    • Plant Cells - Digital INB
    • Animal Cells - Digital INB

    7-2.3. Compare the body shapes of bacteria (spiral, coccus, and bacillus) and the body structures that protists (euglena, paramecium, amoeba) use for food gathering and locomotion.

    • COMING SOON - April 1, 2022

    7-2.4. Explain how cellular processes (including respiration, photosynthesis in plants, mitosis, and waste elimination) are essential to the survival of the organism.

    • Lesson - Importance of Cell Division
    • Lesson - Energy Flow in Ecosystems
    • Lesson - Mitosis
    • Cellular Respiration and Photosynthesis - Lab Station Activity
    • Mitosis and Cell Division - Digital Scavenger Hunt Activity
    • Mitosis Flip Book Activity

    7-2.5. Summarize how genetic information is passed from parent to offspring by using the terms genes, chromosomes, inherited traits, genotype, phenotype, dominant traits, and recessive traits.

    • Lesson - DNA, Genes, Chromosomes, and Alleles
    • Lesson – Meiosis
    • Meiosis - Digital Scavenger Hunt
    • Plant Sexual and Asexual Reproduction - Lab Station Activity
    • Genetics and Gene Therapy Reading
    • DNA Genes Chromosomes and Alleles - Digital Scavenger Hunt

    7-2.6. Use Punnett squares to predict inherited monohybrid traits.

    • COMING SOON - April 1, 2022

    7-2.7. Distinguish between inherited traits and those acquired from environmental factors.

    • 4 weeks of teaching resources
    • 6 Lessons
    • 2 Digital Interactive Notebooks
    • 3 Digital Scavenger Hunt Activities
    • 1 Science Comprehension Reading
    • 2 Lab Station Activities

    Each lesson contains:

    • The lesson (student and teacher versions of the presentation)
    • Google and Office-ready versions
    • Embedded videos
    • A student lesson handout as a document


    The remaining South Carolina Grade 7 Science Standards are also available and can be found below:

    Google, Office, and Distance Learning Ready

    • These lessons include both Office and Google formats for ALL resources. The presentations are in PowerPoint and Google Slides while all documents contain Word and Google Doc versions.
    • Your resources are perfect for distance learning and integrate seamlessly with Google Classroom as I've included a link that will automatically create a copy of the resources and put them directly into your Google Drive with one click.
    • Purchase --> Open --> Click --> Assign to your students

    What are the student versions and how do they encourage student understanding?

    The student versions of the presentations contain multiple blanks that need to be filled in throughout the lesson. These blanks are conveniently underlined and bolded on the teacher copy. I have found this to be the most effective means of keeping my students engaged and active without having them write everything out. This also leaves more time for discussion and activities.


    I also have a range of assignments and lessons/units from other grade levels at my store. Please CLICK HERE to have a look around and don’t forget to follow if you like what you see.

    Also, please visit my blog Teach With Fergy for my thoughts on teaching, learning, and everything in between.
