8th Grade Science Course Description

             This course is to allow students to expand their knowledge over earth and space science, force and motion, matter and energy, organisms and environments. Throughout the school year, students will create, journal, experiment TEKS concepts in a variety of methods. They will participate in engaging activities designed to capture student attention visually, auditorily, and kinesthetically. Students will be responsible for keeping up with assignments in Google Classroom, Study Island, Vocab Homework, Binder Organization, Bell Questions, online Textbook (access via Google Classroom), projects, or other assignments  to ensure good standing within the course. Access to technology will be provided almost every day to extend time for assignments.  Each assignment is designed with a learning purpose to support student success in reaching high standards of science literacy and education.

             The study of 8th Grade science includes laboratory investigations using the scientific method using various lab equipment to collect and analyze data.  Computers and technology will aid in scientific investigations.  Students will examine the periodic table, perform experiments testing for chemical or physical changes/reactions, explore Space and Universe, analyze Earth’s processes including weather patterns, tides, plate tectonics, and seasons in guidance by the State of Texas, Dept. of Education.
