Mr. Blanksenship - Eighth Grade
Hello My Name Is...
I have a broad background in Science. During my time at Akers I have taught mainly 7th and 8th grade Science. I am currently teaching all 8th graders Science.
grade science focuses mainly in the area of Physical Science. Some
concepts of Life and Earth Science are integrated to support topics in
Physical Science. The broad areas of study will be: motion, forces,
structure of matter, earth in the solar system, reactions, chemistry of
living systems, periodic table, density and buoyancy, and investigation
Science concepts are taught through the use of a class text, an online Science web source, and lab activities.
world we live in is an on going science experiment. We can explain much
of our world through science. Eighth grade science is geared toward
awakening each student's awareness of how their everyday world can be
explained through science plus gaining an understanding of their
participation in it.
