Submitted by Mrs. Lisa Pericles, Teacher, 8th Grade Honors Earth Science:
The 8th grade Honors Earth Science class learned by application!
Each unit has multiple chapters and the students apply what they learn by doing science experiments. The students choose their own experiments based on the topics from the chapter. The students use technology to create science boards on PowerPoint.
The students worked on Chapter 2 – Matter, Forces, and Energy
Students must choose one of the forces and create an experiment that demonstrates that force.
Forces are either contact (compression, friction, tension, and shear) or they are field (gravitational, electrical, and magnetic).
