Course Syllabus
Greetings!  
 
Parents,  
Attached is the syllabus for your student's physical science class.  I would like for you to peruse the course syllabus with your students to ensure that they are aware of all expectations associated with this course.  Students will not receive the paper syllabus you are accustomed to however the course will be available all year on line for your disposal.
 
 
Homework
Homework is assigned to reinforce what was taught in class. I will assign a variety of different homework experiences. Some are very brief and may only need a few write-in answers, while others may require a large time commitment, creativity, and project steps. These more involved projects enrich the students' understanding of the subject matter and engage kids in topics more fully than we can pursue during class time.
Chem For Kids
It's not just for kids, it's for everyone. If you are looking for basic chemistry help and information, stay on this site. They have information on matter, atoms, elements, the periodic table, reactions, and biochemistry.
How Stuff Works
This site contains explanations of how everyday tools work, including basic engines, televisions, and even bread. Try this site to answer your curious questions.
NASA for Students
This sit is a great place for projects and research. Students and adults can access the NASA home page from this site, too.
National Geographic
National Geographic for kids brings the world of science and social studies (history, culture, etc.) to students with vivid pictures.
Eighth Grade Science Curriculum
Attached Below is the Link for the Georgia Science Standards.  The Physical Science Standards is the curriculum provided by the county used by teachers to facilitate instruction.  Students will be tested on these standards for the Georgia Milestones.
 
Safety Rules and Contract
 Safety is the number 1 priority for the teachers, parents and students. In science we are very hands on especially with experiments. To develop, maintain and have a safe laboratory and classroom we must follow these rules to ensure the safety of everyone.
