The scientific process, chemistry, body systems, and characteristics of life and genetics are the central concepts studied in the 7th grade science curriculum.
The 8th Grade Science curriculum is centered around
four main topics: physical science, astronomy, geology, fossils, geologic time, and natural selection.
The earth's weather and regional climate are also part of the curriculum and explored
on a relevancy timeline.
Lab safety procedures and continued reinforcement of metric system measurement are
followed throughout the year.
