Mr. Woodworth (Science)

Welcome to Mr. Woodworth’s Eighth Grade Science Class! I look forward to working with both students and parents throughout the year. I am dedicated to the academic and social development of all students and will push everyone to do his or her best. I believe that each student can and will learn when they come to school willing to put forth their best effort.

Current Unit

Our current unit is Unit 1, Introduction to Physical Science and the Scientific Method.  We are studying the process of solving problems using the Scientific Method.  Through this unit, we will work on improving on scientific skills such as: identifying the parts of an experiment, creating a hypothesis, identifying the controls and constants in an experiment, analyzing and interpreting data, and formulating conclusions using multiple sources of information.  We will practice these skills while designing and running experiments which help students learn about the characteristics and properties of Magnetism and Electricity.  This will give us an opportunity to begin studying Energy in all of its forms and through all of its interactions. We should finish this unit during the first week of October.

Quizzes and Tests
There are C.F.Us (Checks for Understanding) daily in class.  There are no major quizzes or tests currently scheduled.  Our first major assessment will occur in the first week of October, and I will post the exact dates as we get closer to October.
