• Welcome to 7th Grade Science!
    First Semester will mainly focus on Geology beginning with the rock cylce and ending with plate tectonics. Second Semester will will discover Newton's three laws of motion, energy, and Climate Change (It does exist!)  
    Please check the class calendar to find out what we are doing today and find any homework or upcoming tests. As all my science units are very lab intensive, there will not be a lot of assigned homework. Most homework for this class will be finishing lab reports that were not finished in class and studying for tests or quizes.
    e-learning assignments can be found in the elearning tab and on schoology
  • Meet the Teacher
    Mrs. Triemstra teaches 7th grade science at Krueger Middle school in room 103. She has been teaching in the district since 2008.  Mrs. Triemstra graduated from Western Michigan University in April 2008 with endorsements to teach elementary and middle school science, math, social studies, and Language Arts. She believes in a very hands-on approach to learning and incorporates group work into as many classes as possible. As an active runner, Mrs. Triemstra enjoys coaching both Middle School Cross Country and Track. She is also in charge of the Washington DC/Florida trip that takes interested students on a fun filled learning adventure every summer. When she is not at school, Mrs. Triemstra is either playing with her son, teaching fitness classes at the YMCA, or helping her husband run Heroes Haven, a comics and games store which they own here in town.
