Science 8

Eighth grade science focuses on Life Science.  It will focus on genetics and the principle of Natural Selection as a mode of adaptation development.  Eighth grade science will also delve into geological processes such as plate tectonics, erosion, and deposition.  The year will end with forces and motion.  We will explore concepts such as magnetism, laws of motion, and forces.
