Welcome to Eighth Grade Science!
Science is all around you! In science class, we will learn how to think like a scientist. We will explore the nature and composition of matter, Newton’s three laws of motion, and how living things interact with their environment. Science teaches us how to become effective problem-solvers in real-world situations. Therefore, as we learn science, we will identify how it applies to our lives. In addition to reading and discussing science content, we will design and carry out meaningful activities and draw conclusions based on our experiences. We will discover the importance of science in everyday life by looking at the processes such as of baking a cake to fixing the family car with a metric wrench.
