Springlake-Earth HS Science Update
Think Like a Proton --- Stay Positive
8th Grade Science
It is now time for us to move on to the Periodic Table. In the upcoming week, students will learn about the "Groups and Periods" on the Periodic Table, and how these numbers relate to the structure of atoms. Students will also learn about the reactivity of atoms. In the future students will be moving on to counting atoms within chemical formulas.
IP&C Science Classes
Students have also identified the difference in cell organelles between plant and animal cells, by examining different cell examples under the microscope.
In chemistry, students have taken a journey through matter this past 6 weeks. Students have refreshed their knowledge on chemical and physical properties of matter. In class we have learned that physical properties break down into Intensive and Extensive properties. Students have also learned about mixtures, pure substances, and states of matter. Reading the Phase Diagram is a walk in the park for our chemistry kiddos now. After we mastered this information, we moved on to the Periodic Table where we learned about Periodic Table Families and Periodic Table Trends, such as, electronegativity and ionization energy. We are currently working on Atomic Theory projects and I can not wait to see the results.
