Course Description
    In eighth grade this year, we are in a transition year to adopt the new NGSS standards. This year the students in eighth grade will solve problems using the Scientific Method.
    • We will be exploring the areas of:
    • Structure and Properties of Matter
    • Chemical reactions and interactions
    • Forces and interactions
    • Electromagnetic waves
    • Space Systems ( astronomy)
    • Earth History (geology)

    Students will work on many laboratory investigations using the scientific method. They will get a chance to pose a problem, create an experiment to test a hypothesis, collect data from the experiment, and develop a logical conclusion from the data they have collected.
