8th Grade Science
The topics in 8th Grade Science will include, but not limited to: Forces and Energy, Waves and Fields, Evolution/Genetics, and Space Systems. The course will fully implement the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) ( http://www.cde.ca.gov/pd/ca/sc/ngssstandards.asp ). Students will be required to maintain a 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!
