8th grade science is soooo much fun! The curriculum encompasses physics, chemistry, weather, a little genetics, waves, electricity and sun-earth-moon. 8th grade science is assessed using pre and post tests, lab activities, projects and the TCAP, thus, it is a big year! Please make sure students use the notetaking links to gain a better understanding and enrichment of the material being presented in class. Thank you so much.
