I use this study guide for our winter break assignment. Part one asks scholars to write definitions and provide examples. Terms are color coded to the unit they correspond to. This document covers the following units for 8th grade science in
This lab is based on the ramp kit I purchased from amazon (force and motion kit) but it can be adapted as long as you have two ramps at different inclines, timers and toy cars. I recommend having calculators available for the data debrief portion of
Purpose: We will create working circuits so we can test the relationship described in Ohm’s Law. Through six unique experiments, students will analyze circuit design, voltage drop, open and closed circuits, conductors and insulators as they pertain
This is a student sheet for a series of demonstrations that I use to introduce our unit on magnetism. I ground future lessons in this exploratory learning experience to make the content "sticks" more than opening with a video or lecture.
Purpose: Scholars will explore the role of electrons in magnetism and electricity by creating electromagnets.
Scholars will perform two tests during this lab: testing the effect of coils on the strength of the electro-magnet and testing the effect
Scholars have 40 fill in the blank prompts without a word bank where they must identify the correct vocabulary term that the sentence is referring to. We use this in my classroom to determine mastery of vocabulary before our first benchmark. The
Scholars have 40 fill in the blank prompts without a word bank where they must identify the correct vocabulary term that the sentence is referring to. They also have to categorize a few diagrams at the end of the assignment, We use this in my
