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.
Students will review the steps of the scientific method and conduct an investigation that involves sorting magnetic and nonmagnetic objects.
Drumming Up Some Sound Energy!
Students will explore sound energy by creating their own drums using a variety of materials. Then, students will listen for the loud and soft sounds that each of the drums creates.
Soft and Hard Skills for Success
Students will focus on learning and identifying hard and soft skills that can be used among a variety of careers.
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 Section 1: Work-Based Learning Concepts and Terminology
This section defines basic work-based learning (WBL) concepts and terminology, specifically those concepts and terms related to career preparation and practicum courses that are taught as part of career and technical education (CTE) programs in Texas schools. In addition, it introduces the duties and tasks that teachers assigned to career preparation and practicum courses are expected to perform during a typical school year.
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.
4 Section 8: Recordkeeping and Documentation for WBL
This section describes the records that the Texas Education Agency (TEA) requires work-based learning (WBL) teacher-coordinators to verify, produce, and/or maintain to comply with federal and state laws and policies.
