8th Grade Science Standards

Unit 1: How does food provide the body with energy? Students will develop a model to describe how food is rearranged through chemical reactions forming new molecules that support growth and/or release energy as this matter moves through an organism.


Unit 2: How is the Earth changing? Students will use and evaluate models to construct an explanation based on evidence for how geoscience processes have changed Earth's surface.


Unit 3: Why do organisms look the way they do?   Students will analyze and interpret data to explain how traits are inherited and how populations are changed by inheritance of traits. 


Unit 4: How do forces and energy affect the motion of objects? Students will carry out investigations and construct models to determine how forces influence motion, the relationship between forces and energy, and how to describe motion.
