6th Grade Science:

Students will recognize and describe the internal and external structure of the Earth. Students will recognize and explain how major geologic events are a result of the movement of Earth's crustal plates. Students will cite evidence to demonstrate and explain that physical weathering and chemical weathering cause changes to Earth materials.

7th Grade Science  
For the first quarter, Mr. Ficalora's classes will be covering environmental concepts including:

  Recognize and explain how human activities can accelerate or magnify many naturally occurring changes.
    Based on data from research identify and describe how natural processes change the environment, including:
        Cyclic climate change

8th Grade Science:
For the first quarter, 8th grade science classes will be covering concepts in chemistry/science including the following:

  • Design, analyze, or carry out simple investigations and formulate appropriate conclusions based on data obtained or provided.
  • Explain that if more than one variable changes at the same time in an investigation, the outcome of the investigation may not be clearly attributable to any one of the variables.
  • Organize and present data in tables and graphs and identify relationships they reveal.
  • Describe how the motion of atoms and molecules in solids, liquids, and gases changes as heat energy is increased or decreased.
  • Describe what the temperature of a solid, or a liquid, or a gas reveals about the motion of its atoms and molecules.
