This project will count as a project grade.
Standards and Objectives
S8P1. Students will examine the scientific view of the nature of matter.
a. Distinguish between atoms and molecules.
b. Describe the difference between pure substances (elements and compounds) and mixtures.
c. Describe the movement of particles in solids, liquids, gases, and plasmas states.
d. Distinguish between physical and chemical properties of matter as physical (i.e., density, melting point, boiling point) or chemical (i.e.,
reactivity, combustibility).
e. Distinguish between changes in matter as physical (i.e., physical change) or chemical (development of a gas, formation of precipitate, and
change in color).
f. Recognize that there are more than 100 elements and some have similar properties as shown on the Periodic Table of Elements.
g. Identify and demonstrate the Law of Conservation of Matter.
S8P2. Students will be familiar with the forms and transformations of energy.
a. Explain energy transformation in terms of the Law of Conservation of Energy.
b. Explain the relationship between potential and kinetic energy.
c. Compare and contrast the different forms of energy (heat, light, electricity, mechanical motion, sound) and their characteristics.
d. Describe how heat can be transferred through matter by the collisions of atoms (conduction) or through space (radiation). In a liquid or gas,
currents will facilitate the transfer of heat (convection).
S8P3. Students will investigate relationship between force, mass, and the motion of objects.
a. Determine the relationship between velocity and acceleration.
b. Demonstrate the effect of balanced and unbalanced forces on an object in terms of gravity, inertia, and friction.
c. Demonstrate the effect of simple machines (lever, inclined plane, pulley, wedge, screw, and wheel and axle) on work.
S8P4. Students will explore the wave nature of sound and electromagnetic radiation.
a. Identify the characteristics of electromagnetic and mechanical waves.
b. Describe how the behavior of light waves is manipulated causing reflection, refraction diffraction, and absorption.
c. Explain how the human eye sees objects and colors in terms of wavelengths.
d. Describe how the behavior of waves is affected by medium (such as air, water, solids).
e. Relate the properties of sound to everyday experiences.
f. Diagram the parts of the wave and explain how the parts are affected by changes in amplitude and pitch.
S8P5. Students will recognize characteristics of gravity, electricity, and magnetism as major kinds of forces acting in nature.
a. Recognize that every object exerts gravitational force on every other object and that the force exerted depends on how much mass the objects
have and how far apart they are.
b. Demonstrate the advantages and disadvantages of series and parallel circuits and how they transfer energy.
c. Investigate and explain that electric currents and magnets can exert force on each other

Task:
You have been commissioned by Floyd’s Publishing House to create Middle School Guide of Physical Science
Terminology. BUT there is one problem; the editor in chief needs the book in 6 business days. We know that you are
more than capable to of getting the job done. So, here are the requirements.
1. Design your cover and include the title, Middle School Guide of Physical Science Terminology.
2. The first page will be your title page and should include such information as the name of your booklet, your name,
the publisher, the illustrator, period and the date.
3. On the second page, write the letter A, and think of the many, varied and unusual words beginning with the letter
“A” that are associated with science. Choose one of the words you thought of and write it, create a drawing to show
you understand the meaning of the word, put the standard and objective associated with the word and, finally, write
a definition for the word.
4. In addition to the letter and picture, each student must provide the information about the physics concept that is
represented by that letter and explain how it is related to one or more of the topics listed above. All
entries MUST be related to one of the topics above.
5. Complete the other 25 pages/letters in the same manner.
6. On pages 29 -30, write a letter to the upcoming 8th graders, giving them best practices to succeed in Physical
Science.
7. Put a back on the book so that the last letter page is not exposed, CREATIVITY is a must!
Do’s and Don’ts
•
You MAY NOT USE THE GLOSSARY OF THE TEXTBOOK.
•
It’s important to use creativity in your drawings. (Computer assistance is permitted but not required for the
drawings)
•
You must add color to give your book a more professional look.
•
It must be done in PEN, not pencil (ABC books done in pencil will not be graded).
•
The book must be bound by any method you would like.
•
The project must be neatly done.
•
Notebook paper will NOT be accepted.
Example
S8P2 d.
C is for conductor. Conductors allow heat and electricity to flow through them easily. Metals are good
conductors of heat and electricity. Pots and pans used for cooking are made of metal because they
transfer heat from the stove to the food you are cooking. The electrical wires in your home are made of
metal because they carry the electricity from the electrical panel to the electrical outlets throughout
your home.
