Eighth grader Katherine Haley from the Peer Ambassadors reports on the 8th grade this week:
TMS 8th grade:
Science: Students are beginning to work with Newton’s Third Law of Motion in science. After learning the basic concept of this law, the students then did an experiment that involved making a rocket. They then explained how all of Newton’s Laws were applied in the experiment.
Math: Some students have been working with exponents, while others continue to work on the Pythagorean Theorem.
ELA: In Language Arts students are working their way into the public speaking unit. Throughout the next few weeks, students will be participating in a number of activities to improve their listening and speaking skills.
