8th Grade Science

8th grade Science is a year of new and intriguing concepts! The Scientific Method will be used to explore chemical reactions, genetics, weather, and many other topics. Students will be learning how to use and identify many of the elements in our world, as well as how some elements react with one another. They will begin to explore the concepts of genetics and adaptation during our Life Science section. We will end the year with a recycling project and a unit exploring our Indiana weather and weather patterns around the world.
