    Students will review 8th grade standards by doing little mini lessons kept in a booklet that I will provide them. They will be responsible for it for 3 and half weeks. They will explore, explain, elaborate, and evaluate Energy, Investigate Light and Sound, Modeling Atoms, Chemical reactions, Force and motion. This booklet will count for several grades for the last nine weeks of school.

    Homework complete any sections you did not complete in class.

    Standards

    SC.7.P.10.1 – Illustrate that the sun’s energy arrives as radiation with a wide range of wavelengths, including infrared, visible, and ultraviolet, and that white light is made up of a spectrum of different colors. SC.7.P.10.2 – Observe and explain that light can be reflected, refracted, and absorbed. SC.7.P.10.3 – Recognize that light waves, sound waves, and other waves move at different speeds in different materials. SC.8.E.5.11 – Identify and compare characteristics of the electromagnetic spectrum.

    Honors

SC.7.P.10.2 – Observe and explain that light can be reflected, refracted, and absorbed. SC.912.P.10.21 – Qualitatively describe the shift in frequency in sound or electromagnetic waves due to the relative motion of a source or a receiver. SC.912.P.12.7 – Recognize that nothing travels faster than the speed of light in vacuum which is the same for all observers no matter how they or the light source are moving.
