Welcome to 8th grade Science.I look forward to an exciting year of exploring scientific concepts. Here is some information about this class. We will be following the 8th grade Ohio Content Standards for science. In general we will focus on the structure and processes that have shaped Earth, exploring Earth's interior, plate tectonics, and how erosion & deposition have changed Earth's surface, and what the geologic history of an area can tell us. In physical science we will investigate how forces can act a distance and how they affect motion. We will explore genetics, heredity, and biodiversity in life science. This class will utilize hands-on/minds-on laboratory experiences, whole class and small group discussions, technology and readings to achieve the above standards.
