This is great to use at the beginning of the year to get to know your students. I have my students fill it out and color it during the first week of school. Then they present their "Who Am I?" sheet to the class so we can all begin getting to know
I give this lab safety quiz to my 8th grade science classes. It is a short, 21 question quiz with 4 sections: short answer, true or false, and multiple choice. For the last section, they have to draw a diagram of their science classroom and label
In this activity, students get the chance to set goals for themselves and reflect on things they'd like to change in the new year! I assign this when students return from winter break and have them present it to the class.
This is a great template that can be used throughout the year during any science unit. My students use the specific website given to them to find an article related to what we are learning in class. The website is perfect for 8th graders. Each
This is a simple worksheet in which the students read a passage and then have to determine whether the relationship is mutualism, commensalism, or parasitism. Each passage is about 5-6 sentences with one or two pictures. After reading, they will
This worksheet contains 20 questions related to Newton's 2nd Law of Motion. The students get to practice using the formulas associated with this law of motion and they will be solving for either Force, Mass or Acceleration. There are also some basic
I use these passes in my middle school science class. I keep a stack of them in my desk and I've also tried giving a limited number out at the start of each quarter. They fill it out, bring it up to me, and I sign it. Either way I avoid needing the
I use this worksheet as a review guide at the end of the metric system unit. It covers volume, mass, and converting between metric units. I've also used it as a quiz at the end of the unit. All of the questions are short answer questions.
This worksheet contains 22 physics practice problems. It is divided into 3 sections, according to what they will be solving for: Speed, Time, or Distance. It is a simple review which I use with my 8th grade students during our physics unit.
