• Science Topics

    Nature of Science ~ We study the tools used in the science laboratory and how to properly use them, and the scientific method.  We will start the year with as introduction of safety rules in the science laboratory, science equipment 

    Weather ~ The learner will understand how cycling of matter(water and gases) in and out of the atmosphere relates to Earth's atmosphere, weather and climate and the effects of the atmosphere on humans.

    Forces and Motion ~ The learner will understand motion, the effects of forces on motion and the graphical representations of motion.

    Energy Conservation and Energy Transfer ~ The learner will understand forms of energy, energy transfer and transformation and conservation in mechanical systems.

    Genetics ~ The learner will understand the relationship of the mechanisms of cellular reproduction, patterns of inheritance and external factors to potential variations among offspring.

    Human Body ~ The learner will understand the processes,structures and functions of living organisms that enable them to survive reproduce and carry out the basic functions of life.  We dissect frogs to learn how our body systems are laid out.

    Lab Safety

    Students will be participating in lab activities several times a week.  They are expected to follow all lab rules in the classroom. They are expected to use safe handling procedures at all times.
