Study Notes

In the Science 8 class, students engage with a unit on Earth Science, focusing on the topics of Earth, Ocean, and Weather Systems and Plate Tectonics as part of the 8th grade science Scope and Sequence and the Middle School Science TEKS Success Criteria for this concept.

In the Earth, Ocean, and Weather Systems unit, students:

  • Explore the sun's energy and its impact on convection within the atmosphere and oceans
  • Gr
  • Explore the global patterns of atmospheric movement and their influence on local weather
  • Relate past, present, and future geological events to Plate Tectonics

In the Plate Tectonics unit, students:

  • Demonstrate how convection in the asthenosphere (mantle) is causing lithospheric (crustal) plate movement
  • Describe the movement of convergent boundaries, divergent boundaries, and transform boundaries
  • Relate and describe the movement/boundary to the land features formed, such as volcanic mountains, faults, rift valleys, mid-ocean ridge, and folded mountains
  • Explain the theory of Plate Tectonics

In the Environmental Science unit, students:

  • Explore ecosystems, conservation, and climate change
  • Dive into the natural world with experiments and activities related to air quality, water quality, and the effects of climate change
