8th Grade Weekly Lesson Plans

DESCRIPTION

  DESCRIPTION

Since the State Board of Education has voted unanimously to adopt the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), this will be the first year at Malvern that the adopted frameworks will be instructed in the classroom.  Further understanding of the NGSS could be found at the website www.nextgenscience.org. 8th grade science is an integrated science course.  We will begin the year with Physical Science.  From August to January, we will be studying Motions, Forces, and Energy, Electricity and Magnetism, Sound and Light, and Astronomy. From February to May, we will be studying Earth Science and Life Science.  We wil be focusing specifically on the chapters of Geologic Time, Genetics, Modern Genetics, and Changes Over Time.    We have classroom copies and it is especially important for the students to keep notes and handouts during these studies.  The following dates are approximations, but they should help the students know what to expect, and to prepare for the learning, studying and reading.
