Welcome to 8th grade Science with Ms. Pranaitis! We will explore the Physics, Earth and Space Science, and Life Science disciplines this year including topics such as: Forces and Motion, Newton's Laws, Waves, Energy, Sun-Earth-Moon Relationships, and Genetics. You, the student, will be challenged to always look for connections between out science topics and our daily lives. It is expected that you are mature, respectful, and use your common sense and thinking skills at all times. I look forward to a fun, exciting year with you!
