Grade 8 Science Resources in L4U Physical Library

Below are the 4 Big Ideas for Grade 8 Science, and some resources in our L4U Physical Library that you might like to use to assist you in addressing the Learning Standards:

Gr. 8.1:  Life Processes are Performed at the Cellular Level

  1. Cells” by Classroom Complete Press
    • Note:  This resource can be completed in its entirety, and is somewhat of an introduction to the study of cells.  Particular focus should be made on the “Extension and Application” activities found at the end of each section to interact with this resource at a Grade 8 level.  
  2. Exploring Creation with Biology” by Jay Wile
    • Module #1:  Biology: The Study of Life, pages 1 – 36
    • Module #2:  Kingdom Monera, pages 37 – 66, (for in-depth study on bacteria)
    • Pages 218 – 222 (for in-depth study on viruses and vaccines)

Gr. 8.2:  The Behaviour of Matter Can be Explained by the Kinetic Molecular Theory/Atomic Theory

  1. What is Atomic Theory?” by Adam McLean
  2. God’s Design Atoms & Molecules
    • Units 1, 2, and 3 (to page 53)
  3. The Annotated Build-it-Yourself Science Laboratory
    • Chapter 3:  Atomic Energy (pages 99 – 106)

Grade 8.3:  Energy Can be Transferred as Both a Particle and a Wave

  1. God’s Design for the Physical World: Heat and Energy
    • Chapters 22 – 33

Gr. 8.4:  The Theory of Plate Tectonics is the Unifying Theory that Explains Earth’s Geological Processes

  1. What is the Theory of Plate Tectonics” by Craig Saunders
    • Chapters 1 – 6
  2. The Annotated Build-it-Yourself Science Laboratory
    • Seismograph (pages 169 – 172)
