Science: Grades 6-8, Week of 2/5/18

Now that we have finished our survey of the Universe, we begin our study of space travel. This week we will focus on Newton’s Laws of Motion and his concept of Gravity. This will help us understand how rockets work.

The 7th grade is moving on in their study of Physics to explore the beginnings of electricity – how it was discovered and what it was used for in the first initial stages of development. We will be experimenting with different kinds of electrical circuits and creating new devices for the home.

The 8th grade is just about finished studying the Human Body. This week we will be concentrating on the human reproductive system and then we will begin our unit on Genetics.
