Welcome to Our Science Curriculum........
Welcome to Grade 8 Science! This year you will spend time collaborating with your peers as you investigate, debate, design models, and much more. As we explore each new topic this year I will facilitate lessons that are highly interactive and will cause you to productively struggle as you search for answers to scientific questions and design solutions to real world problems.  The key to success is not to simply listen, but to ask, discuss, and engage each and everyday.  Your learning will be three-dimensional meaning that you will apply you science skills and understanding of content as you develop connections between and reasoning for all that we are learning.
