Yosemite        Hello, my name is Jon Frank. This year I have an 8th grader too.  I have been teaching 23 years at the 8th grade science level. You can get a hold of me at jfrank@pbvusd.net   The course is broken down into 10 sections. The first is the scientific method, second is astronomy, third is heat, fourth is periodic table, fifth is chemical reactions, sixth is organic chemistry, seventh is motion, eighth is forces, ninth is density. Then we take the state test. After we take the state test we will make some rockets and fire them off at the end of a space unit. Each section has notes, lab work, and testing.
