Newton's Second Law
Students will work in partners to investigate Newton’s second law by testing a series of experiments with varying conditions.
How Newton's Laws Apply Every Day
Students collaboratively determine how the characteristics of a real-world job correlate with each of Newton’s Laws and why that is relevant to their own lives.
Convergent Plate Boundaries
Students will design and test models that will identify crustal features formed by convergent plate boundaries.
Full Speed Ahead
Students will use hover pucks to measure speed over a distance of six meters. Once speed has been calculated, students will determine velocity using the same data. Finally, students will be able to label all points of acceleration.
Introduction to Plate Tectonics
This resource is intended to use for Tier I classroom instruction.
This resource can be used, in conjunction with best practices, for Tier I classroom instruction.
Introducing the Atom
A resource to be used for Tier I instruction for the introduction of the structure of atoms.
The Arrangement of Elements: The Periodic Table
This resource provides flexible alternate or additional learning opportunities for students to interpret the arrangement of elements on the Periodic Table, Eighth Grade Science TEKS (8)(5)(C).
Newton's Law of Inertia
This resource provides instructional resources for Newton's First Law, the law of inertia.
Newton's Law of Action-Reaction
This resource is to support TEKS (8)(6)(C), specifically the Newton's third law or the law of action-reaction.
Dichotomous Keys Murder Mystery
A resource for the instruction of (7)(11)(A) involving the use of dichotomous keys for identification.
Matter and Energy—Chemical Reactions
Given descriptions or illustrations, students will investigate how evidence of chemical reactions indicates that new substances with different properties are formed.
Tier I resource for instruction on the lunar phases.
Covalent Bonding: Electron Dot Diagrams
Given descriptions, diagrams, scenarios, or chemical symbols, students will model covalent bonds using electron dot formula (Lewis structures).
Kinetic and Potential Energy
Given diagrams, illustrations or relevant data, students will identify examples of kinetic and potential energy and their transformations.
Using diagrams, illustrations, and relevant data, students will calculate the net work done on an object, the change in an object's velocity, and the change in an object's kinetic energy.
It's All About Cell Theory
This resource provides flexible alternate or additional learning opportunities for students to recognize the development and components of the cell theory, TEKS (7)(12)(F).
Elements and Compounds
This resource provides flexible alternative or additional learning opportunities for students to differentiate between elements and compounds on the most basic level, Science TEKS (6)(5)(C).
Introduction to TEA Science Safety Training for Middle School
This section is the introductory text for the course.
Science Academies for Grades 5–8, Part 2 for Trainers
This resource contains the files needed for trainers responsible for training science teachers in grades 5–8 across Texas.
