    Hello! Our science department is continuing to align our curriculum with the Next Generation Science Standards that Illinois adopted. This means that in addition to all of our usual hands-on, inquiry based activities, we are digging deeper to explain the how’s and why’s of our activities. Our 8th graders will be revisiting concepts they were introduced to in elementary school, and taking it to the next level within the units of Chemistry (part I and II), Meteorology, Forces, Energy, and Waves. All of our units feature S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) challenges. For more details, please see ask an 8th grader or visit our Google Classroom or contact me personally. Thanks for your interest! Mrs. Schmidt
