Welcome to 8th Grade Science
8th grade science is about the concepts of chemistry and physics. We as a class will be investigating the nature of universal laws and theories. The course is heavy with vocabulary concepts and laboratory practices. The primary factor within physical science is the atom and its interactions with energy. Students will also learn the concepts of: gravity, temperature, pressure, light, sound, thermodynamics, acceleration, forces, Newton's Laws, and a host of other interesting and universal concepts that are life changing insights for a student’s scientific education and high school success.
Science is on a block schedule opposite Civics. Science is on B day and Civics is on A days. Some weeks we only meet twice a week. So it is paramount that students are prepared for class.
