The seventh grader is filled with wonder and curiosity now. Their mind awakened to the more logical way of thinking in sixth grade but now that they've been through a year of Roman law, logical thinking, debate and other intellectual activities they are starting to realize that intellect and logic is not always dull.

When combined with creativity and wonder intellect and logic can be a powerful combination that can take them to places they never imagined! The seventh grader desires to explore these possibilities. At the same time they are also very interested in getting to know themselves. During this time we must foster their need for self-exploration as well as their need to explore the world. We will take the seventh grader through the Renaissance and Reformation age just as we will take them through this Renaissance of their soul. We will show them how individualism overcame feudal rule during this time and will introduce them to people like Leonardo DaVinci who embodies intellect, logic, creativity and exploration. Seventh graders will also explore the concepts of mechanics in physics, inorganic chemistry, and physiology. In math they will explore more algebra and negative numbers. Form drawing will include perspective drawing. Music includes music from the period of study. A school play from the Renaissance usually rounds out the year.
