The sixth grade science curriculum is based on the frameworks within the Next Generation Science Standards. In this class, students will focus on learning the Earth and Space Science standards, coupled with Technology, Engineering, and Social/Emotional Standards.  Every effort will be made to provide hands-on opportunities, integrate technology, differentiate instruction, and present lessons in a variety of formats to suit all learning styles.

The seventh grade science curriculum is based on the frameworks within the Next Generation Science Standards. In this class, students will focus on learning the Life Science standards, coupled with Technology, Engineering, and Social/Emotional Standards.  Every effort will be made to provide hands-on opportunities, integrate technology, differentiate instruction, and present lessons in a variety of formats to suit all learning styles.

The eighth grade science curriculum is based on the frameworks within the Next Generation Science Standards. In this class, students will focus on learning the Physical Science standards, coupled with Technology, Engineering, and Social/Emotional Standards.  Every effort will be made to provide hands-on opportunities, integrate technology, differentiate instruction, and present lessons in a variety of formats to suit all learning styles.

Grading Policy:

Several factors make up the grade in Physical Science.  In addition to daily classwork, students will have regular quizzes, tests, projects, and laboratory activities to complete. Effort and participation are very important. Students are expected to be on time to class and to come prepared. The breakdown of the grade is as follows:

Tests, Quizzes                              30 %

Projects                                         30 %

Classwork (Including Labs)      40 %

 

Students will earn a “Preparation and Participation” grade.  Every student automatically starts with (and hopefully stays at) 100 points. For every day that a student comes to class unprepared, or does not participate appropriately, they will lose a maximum of two points.  This will count as one quiz grade.

Homework Policy

Homework may vary and typically consists of completing activities that were not finished in class and previewing material that will be covered the next day.
