Atomic Structure Welcome to 8th Grade Science!!

This year in 8th grade science we will be exploring the new NGSS content. We will engage in activities that reinforce our understanding of physics, force, motion, genetics, waves, solar system, human impact on Earth and many other topics.

Students will start each class with a catalyst to start the reaction of thinking in their head. Students will participate in labs, notes, songs, individual projects and group projects. Students will analyze data, read about current science events and communicate ideas supported by evidence. This is a great year for science!!
