Principal’s Corner
7th & 8th Grade Science

Welcome back!

I hope everyone had a great summer and is back and ready to learn as much as they can this school year.

We have already started our lessons and labs for the year and everything is going well so far.  In 7th grade, we have been learning about the scientific method and how that applies to life, as well as certain topics that will be used throughout the year like measurement, heat, graphing and density.  We will be soon moving into our first Earth Science topic: water and weather.

In 8th grade science, we are studying physics.  We have been laying the foundation of what physics is, and how math will help with studying it.  There will be a lot of math in science this year!  We will be moving into our studies of motion very soon.

The 8th graders are also looking forward to their annual trip to Washington, D.C. at the end of this month.  More on that to come…

Here is my student of the month:

WORDS TO LIVE BY:

 

 

Science is a tool to help solve the questions of who, what, where, when, and how.  Faith and religion are the realm of the most important question, why.

7th Grade Science at Evangelical is Earth Science and Astronomy.  We use the CPO Science curriculum with integrated lab equipment.

8th Grade Science at Evangelical is Physical Science.  As with Earth Science, we follow the CPO Science curriculum.  www.cposcience.com

All materials are in digital format and make the  use of Chromebooks ideal!  Evangelical students engage in laboratory experiences regularly that challenge their thinking skills as well as foster cooperative learning.

 

I am again having 6th-8th grade Science Club on the first and third Mondays of each month.  The first meeting of the month we will watch something educational about science.  If you would like to donate snacks and/or drinks for those meetings, I would really appreciate it.  The second meeting of the month is about doing some kind of activity/lab that we might not normally do as part of the regular curriculum.  There is a page on this website with the information about Science Club as well as our meeting dates for the year.  Click here.

DWP will continue to play a role in our lessons in science.  (Every DWP skill is absolutely essential to understanding and working with science.)

We will be doing lots of labs and investigations, we will watch videos, play games, and have fun gaining knowledge of how our universe works!
