Science: Grades 6-8 Week of 10/22/18

This week the 6th graders will be looking at weather maps to identify warm and cold fronts. We will also study what types of weather these fronts can bring to a region. Finally, we will look at our current weather conditions and try to predict future weather.

The 7th graders will continue to explore different kinds of chemical reactions, in particular, how we can decompose water into hydrogen and oxygen. This will be followed by a short unit on Chemical Bonding.

The 8th grade will be finishing up their unit on Cells & Biochemistry and will be reviewing the organelles inside a typical cell and how substances get transported through a cell membrane. Following their exam, we will begin our next unit on Human Anatomy.
