This page includes teacher slides for terms included in the eighth grade Physical Science Virginia Standards or Learning. All slides include background knowledge necessary to understand that term with reference to other terms in the unit, student friendly definitions, evidence-based practices for teaching vocabulary in the content areas, and embedded questions to help monitor student understanding. Additionally, we have provided links to hands on activities that demonstrate aspects of the terms and topics for students. To download these presentations, click the appropriate text link below.
These slide shows are not necessarily intended to comprise a single class. They are organized to link content that could be used across several class periods. Feel free to adjust the slides as needed.
