Communication in Space
Students will work in cooperative groups to create an accurate arrangement of mirrors that work together to relay a laser beam from a Mars space station to Earth’s Mission Control, which will model utilizing satellites in space for communication, an accommodation necessary for manned space exploration.
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.
Building a Watershed
Students will model the effects of human activity on watersheds.
Modeling the Path of Digestion
Students model the path of digestion using household items.
Push Back, Pull Forward
Students will conduct an experiment to demonstrate force such as pushes and pulls.
Stages of Ecological Succession
Students will collaborate on a electronic slideshow presentation and observe, record, and describe the role of ecological succession including both primary and secondary succession.
Escaping the Nucleus
Students will work in groups to complete an escape room challenge that replicates the process of gene expression.
Students will explore biodiversity concepts through several activities including a video, a card sort, think-pair-shares, food webs, and four corners.
10 OnTRACK Grade 8 Science: Force, Motion, and Energy
Students will explore the relationship between force, motion, and energy.
17 OnTRACK Scientific Process Skills
This binder contains seventeen separate resources focused on the scientific processes for conducting laboratory and field investigations.
6 Chapter 6: Stoichiometry
In this chapter, students are introduced to the mole, mass relationships, and stoichiometric calculations with balanced equations.
2 Chapter 10: Light
In this chapter, we discuss visible light and other forms of electromagnetic radiation.
6 Chapter 3: Kinematics
In this chapter, we analyze the motion of constantly accelerated objects over time in terms of displacement, velocity, and acceleration.
5 Chapter 6: Waves
In this chapter, we explore the mathematical concept of a wave and show how this concept can be used to accurately describe and predict many natural phenomena.
3 Chapter 7: Static Electricity
In this chapter, we explore how electrically charged particles interact through electrostatic forces and fields.
8 Chapter 3: Measurements
In this chapter, we strengthen math skills necessary for chemistry problems and discuss the SI units of measurement. Additionally, we convert between units of measurement and discuss interpreting data from graphs and tables.
3 Chapter 14: Nuclear Chemistry
In this chapter, we discuss nuclear reactions that occur in unstable nuclides.
