Welcome to science with Captain Howerton!
8th grade integrated science is a fascinating class where students will explore science concepts using an inquiry-based approach with emphasis on the skills of observation and hypothesis generation, scientific testing, and analysis and interpretation of scientific data. Integrated topics will include reproduction and heredity; diversity, adaptation and behavior; properties and changes of properties in matter; and motion and forces. Topics will encompass the history and nature of science study as well as science in personal and social perspectives.
