Students in 8th grade science develop understanding of key concepts to help them make sense of life, earth and physical science. The ideas build upon students’ science understanding from earlier grades and from the disciplinary core ideas, science and engineering practices, and crosscutting concepts. 8th grade continues the story of matter and energy flow within and between larger isolated systems and the processes that occur within those systems over time.
The science strands/modules include: Natural Selection and Adaptations, Evidence for Evolution, Newton’s Laws and Kinetic Energy, Wave Properties and Their Application in Technology, Seasons, Moon Phases, and Eclipses, and Gravitational Forces and Scale in the Universe.
