Science 8 with Virtual Labs A/B

Science 8 with Virtual Labs is an integrated science course based on the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)The content covers all three dimensions incorporated by NGSS: disciplinary core ideasscience and engineering practices, and crosscutting concepts.  The course robustly meets NGSS learning standards associated with eighth-grade integrated science (NGSS Appendix KRevised Conceptual Progressions Model, p. 19). Semester A focuses on genes, evolution, and the Earth’s energy. Semester B focuses on Earth’s changing climate, waves, and human impact on the Earth.

In this course, students complete teacher-graded labs in the Course Activities and Unit Activities. This version of Science 8 has been designed so that all labs are virtual. Students will still be able to plan and execute investigations through carefully designed simulations and videos. They will also be able to design experimental setups and analyze data and visuals derived from real-world experiments.
