8th Grade Earth Science

Teacher Bio Curriculum Homework




Hello Parents & Students! This is my first year teaching 8th Grade Earth Science at MIMS. 

I graduated from Bethel University with a Bachelor's Degree in Life Science Education. I have a teaching license for middle school science, as well as for high school life science. 

While I am not teaching, I enjoy being outside. I love to bike, kayak, and go for walks. I also love to travel! One of my favorite places that I have been is the United Arab Emirates and Oman. 

If you would like to contact me, please email me at kristenp@iecmail.net.

In 8th grade science, we are learning all about Earth and Space Science. We will be studying everything from rocks and minerals to earthquakes to the planets in our solar system.

Space Escape Room Link!

The current unit's learning target is: I can explain how the Earth and moon's orientation and movement in the solar system explains seasons, day length, phases of the moon and eclipses. I can describe the force of gravity and how gravity and inertia keep most objects in the solar system in regular and predictable motion.
