About Science This Year
This year, we will be covering many fascinating and innovative science concepts including biotechnology, chemistry, resources in energy, infectious diseases, the hydrosphere, ocean ecosystems, genetic variations, and natural selection. Our pace will be fast and will demand a lot!
One of the main features of this course is an interactive science notebook. Because we do not have a standard textbook for science this year, you, in essence, will be creating your textbook within a composition book for the entire school year. Any notes, labs, descriptions, or essays that you write in this class will be kept in this interactive notebook. By the end of the year, it will serve as an effective tool to prepare and study for the Science EOG and it will be a practice in organization and neatness, which probably every eighth grader needs more of!
