8th Grade Links

Welcome to Mrs. Rhea's 8th grade science lessons.

I am so excited to be teaching our 8th graders this year!  I can't wait to see you all again in August.  All of our everyday work will be available on Google Classroom, but this page gives you a good overview of what we'll be doing this year.  If you notice that something doesn't work, please contact me and let me know.

The focus this year is chemistry and earth science and we will be studying the following.  Please note that the order may change before the school year begins.  If you are new to my class, you may find the attached brochure helpful.  Until then, have a great summer!
