Science 8

Eighth grade Science is a year-long course in the physical and earth sciences.  Students are introduced to physical science concepts while developing and refining basic laboratory skills.  Light, color, and chemistry are major physical science units studied and students will be exposed to selected introductory units in related areas.  Earth science study consists of units in weather and astronomy.  Our goal is to have students analyze data and apply concepts based on what they’ve learned.  Students will be required to maintain a science notebook and work on a variety of collaborative science projects and presentations throughout the year.
