Benchmark Assessment

       The benchmark is a 60 question assessment tool that is aligned to our standards and will be given after we complete each Unit. This will provide ongoing assessment so that we can identify strong and weak areas for your student in Physical Science.  Students analyze their results and compare to the last time they took the benchmark assessment to determine where they have improved and what they need to work on most.   Please ask your student about their strengths and weaknesses and about where and how they were able to show growth.  Please encourage them to strive to improve each time they take this assessment.  Thank you for your support.

Physical Science

Welcome to 8th grade Physical Science.  This will be a fun yet challenging year.   Physical Science will introduce you to chemistry and physics.   I look forward to investigating these areas of science with you. The best way to contact me is via e-mail at jmcgowan@bullochschools.org  To sign up for my Remind 101 notification text @jmcg to 81010

What Are We Up To?

     We are completing Unit 5 (which covers Potential and Kinetic Energy, Forms of Energy and Heat Transfer) on Tuesday 2/5/19.  Please make sure your student studies for the Unit 5 test which will be given on that date. On Wednesday 2/6/19 we will begin Unit 6 which will include the study of Electromagnetic and Mechanical Waves.
