Advanced 8th Grade Science
Some of the topics in Advanced 8th Grade Science that will be covered this year include: Waves, Earth and the Space Systems, and Forces and Motion. The course will fully implement the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) ( http://www.cde.ca.gov/pd/ca/sc/ngssstandards.asp ). Advanced 8th Grade Science will require students to cover subjects in more depth, using more critical thinking and more inquiry type lessons. Students will be required to maintain an Advanced 8th Grade Science Notebook which will contain notes, certain assignments, lab work, and personal reflections. Notebooks will be collected throughout the semester and graded. Your student's notebook is a good resource for labs, quizzes, and tests!
