8th Grade Science with Ms. Kuroda
Welcome to Science on Team Y. It is going to be a great year and I am so excited to get started. Students will be introduced to many fascinating topics during their 8th grade year. We will start the year off with The Scientific Method and Metric System, as well as writing formal lab reports. Throughout the year we will focus on topics in Chemistry, Energy, and Issues in the Environment.
I believe that all learners are unique, and that all learners come to the classroom with their own personalities, experiences, knowledge bases, and learning styles. I also believe that all students are capable of success when they are actively involved with new information in an interesting and meaningful way. Therefore, through stations, labs, cooperative group work, and other engaging activities students will be given the opportunity to succeed no matter their learning style. By incorporating the Next Generation Science Standards and Science Literacy Strategies, we will work together to ensure that this year is engaging and successful for everyone.
Please familiarize yourself with my Course Syllabus and Expectations packet. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask!
Parents, the best way to contact me is through email. I check it many times throughout the day and I will get back to you as soon as possible. I look forward to working together to make this a successful year for your child.
