Introduction to Physical Science (Grade 8 Science)
Physical science explores the “whys” of how the world works. More specifically, what is the stuff (chemicals) that makes up everything on earth? How does that stuff interact?
We will examine chemistry- atoms, molecules, the behavior of substances made up of atoms and molecules, and how their behavior affects our lives. We will also study some of the rules of physics – how objects interact when they come into contact (even invisible contact!) with each other.
In this class we ask you to think the way scientists do – observe and see things as if for the first time. The great scientists of history are great because they have questioned and thought about what they have seen.

New Introduction to Physical Science (Grade 8 Science) Bulletin
Welcome to Grade 8 Science 2014-2015!
You will find the following useful on our web page:
1. If you click on the "homework" tab (to the left of this bulletin) you will get the homwork schedule for the week. You will be able to find the homework there, even if you have been absent for the day.
2. Any handouts will be posted in one of the folders below: class handouts, review sheets, etc. will be in the "Handouts" folder; laboratory instructions will be in the Laboratory folder.
3. The guidelines folder contains very important references, including the overall laboratory rubric and guidelines for resource referencing (books, internet articles, pictures, etc.).
