Welcome to Eighth Grade Science. I hope you are ready to think scientifically and do science! Eighth Grade Science explores matter and chemistry, energy and your health, microbiology and disease, the hydrosphere, population dynamics, earth history, and good stewardship of our natural resources.
You will need a 1.5 inch binder and a set of dividers. A few page protectors will be useful. You will also need a spiral notebook to use as an interactive notebook for science notes. Remember to bring a pen and pencil with you to class!
Check here for unit vocabulary help throughout the year! Great for EOG science and benchmark exam studying!! I also will post useful notes, powerpoints, and websites for you here.
I look forward to a great year! Mr. Morris
Note: If you miss class for any reason, make sure to get notes from a classmate and pick up class handouts in the makeup folder. Check here to view any missed class material.
Students will be graded on their portfolio of work that will be kept in the front of my classroom (3107). Students will be allowed to take their folders home to complete make-up work. We will be using our nature trail outside classroom during this elective.
