Length: 1 year

Categories: ,


Middle School Physical Science delivers instruction, practice, and

review to help students develop scientific literacy, deepen

conceptual understanding, and apply scientific practices. Students

explore concepts including the interactions of matter; motion and

stability; waves and their technological applications; and energy.

The two-semester course is arranged in themed units, each with two

to three lessons. In each unit, activities make complex ideas

accessible to students as they discover the nature of science

through focused content, interactive mini-investigations, multimodal

representations, and personalized feedback. Each lesson includes a

variety of activities such as direct instruction, application of skills,

performance tasks, and formative and summative assessments.

Students engage with the subject matter in an interactive, feedback rich environment as they progress through standards-aligned content

and demonstrate their learning through computer- and teacher scored assignments.
