7th & 8th Grade Science

??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

MERRY CHRISTMAS! I HOPE THE JOY OF THE GREAT NEWS OF JESUS’ BIRTH WILL FALL UPON YOU AND YOURS THIS CHRISTMASTIME!  IT HAS BEEN MY PLEASURE TO TEACH YOUR 7TH AND 8TH GRADERS THIS 2017 AND I LOOK FORWARD TO 2018.

This month in 8th grade science, the students have studied and reviewed astronomy.   When we get back from break, we will move into electricity, waves and light!

In 7th grade science, students will learn about maps and especially two new types of maps, topographic and bathymetric.

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.  I encourage ideas for these meetings as well.  

Here is the list of meetings this year:

December 4

January 8 and 22

February 5

March 5 and 19

April 16

May 7 and 21

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!
