Grade 8 Science Revision questions_Term 2

Grade 8 Science Revision questions_Term 2

Dear parents and students,

Please note that we ,the science teachers,have planned to start sharing a few questions for this subject once in a week,most probably on weekends, for a couple of weeks.The question sheet  is also shared in the Physics Google classroom, and even the solution sheet will be shared soon.

The main intention of this initiative is to give you enough time to practice and revisit the concepts before the revision slots begin in the class. This will ensure that we mainly focus on solving your doubts in class ,and hence effectively revise a lot more in the specific time.

We expect the learners to sincerely solve them to get the most out of this. In future, the questions will be uploaded in the same document.Doubts will be catered in the classroom itself.

G7 Physics_Details of the student led learning process_Unit1: Earth& Beyond

Dear Parents and students,

With a view to incorporate more of “student-driven” inquiry in the current unit on Earth Science and Astrophysics, we expect the students to research and present the different topics assigned to them, in groups. They can use different modes of presentation such as the graphic organizers, posters/charts , info graphs or role plays to present their understanding to their classmates. The date of presentation will be on Day 2 (Thursday) this week. Kindly make sure that the students plan their work well.

Expected hours of work at home: approx. 2 hours

Internet required:Yes

P.S: For more details, check the google classroom.

Thank You,

Sciences Team.

Dear Parents and students,

In the last 2 cycles, students started their revision for the upcoming Term 2  examination. We revisited certain concepts of the past units, and resolved their doubts. They were given the hard copies of P2 , P4 and P6 questions of Physics, which they solved in the respective slots , and the expected answers to  those questions were discussed in the class.

Post this, we took up the exclusive practice of paper 6 questions ,as that is where they lagged in the previous term. A practice sheet of Paper 6 questions was taken up in the class , and in the next unit test slot , a combined Paper 6  test for all 3 subjects was conducted.

Last but not the least, I would like to share a quote: “Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations!” So, keep putting your efforts, and it will surely pay!

Dear Parents and Students,

In these 2 cycles, students learnt about how do transverse and longitudinal waves travel.  They studied the fundamental wave related terminology,such as: Frequency, wavelength, Time period, Amplitude and wave speed. They understood that speed of a wave is directly related to a wave’s wavelength and it’s frequency.

They learnt about the phenomena of Reflection and Refraction of waves , when they pass through a medium.

Thanks,

Sciences Team.

The students learnt the phenomena of Reflection and Refraction of waves , when they pass through a medium. They performed a lab activity on studying the oscillations of a simple pendulum.  They performed and observed  the change in the  periodic time of the oscillations with the length of the pendulum,and plotted a graph for it , that enhanced their understanding.

Thank you,

Sciences team.

They understood that speed of a wave is directly related to a wave’s wavelength and it’s frequency.

Adding to this, they were demonstrated the Reflection and Refraction phenomena of waves that took place in water, by using a Ripple tank device. They could actually see and connect how reflection pattern looked like , how the refraction of the waves took place when a transparent glass slide was kept in the medium and how the speed of the wave changed when it was refracted, i.e the speed of the wave decreased when it got refracted through glass. They observed the reflection of waves produced in a slinky, from a fixed point.

Thank you,

Dear Parents and Students,

In these 2 cycles, the students were tuned in to a new unit WAVES. We introduced them to this unit by showing a set of images linked with this topic and they reflected on their understanding. We then connected it to questions like “What are waves?”, “How do they travel?”, “Do they require a medium to travel?” and “Suggest examples of waves used in real life.”

In the next sessions, we discussed the categories in which waves are classified, namely: 1. Mechanical and Non-mechanical waves ,and 2. Longitudinal and Transverse Waves. Light waves and sound waves were classified in these 2 categories .We demonstrated the Longitudinal and transverse pattern of wave propagation by using  SLINKEY and TAPE WITH STICKS;The unit test paper questions were also discussed in the class and the doubts were catered.

Thank You,

Sciences Team.

Dear Parents and students,

In this cycle, the students were introduced to:

  1. The difference in the magnetic properties of Iron and Steel and the differences between Hard and Soft Magnetic materials.
  2. Distinguishing solenoids from electromagnets.
  3. Designing electromagnets, their features and the applications.
  4. Reflection of the past topics; It was a pen and paper based assessment; Papers will be checked and handed over to the students.

Thanks,

Sciences Team.
