Welcome to 8th grade Science!!

Wow its hard to believe that this group will soon be in high school...later this year!!  We are now starting our basics of Chemistry lessons.  Periodically we will also continue our content review with FCAT Explorer to prepare for the FCAT Science assessment April 27th and 28th.  This test will cover all middle school science 8th grade Physical, 7th grade Life, and 6th grade Earth/Space.  Students can start their independent review at http://www.fcatexplorer.com.  This program will be completed by testing time and recorded as a grade by April 28th.  Lots of learning and fun labs!!  Keep posted by checking the weekly assignments and important dates.
