Princeton private school

Class 6

Physics

Having studied Earth Science in Class Five (including rocks and minerals, plate tectonics, weather, and surface processes), Class Six students move on to Physics (electricity and magnetism, machines and motion, sound and light). We stress careful observation and the development of a sense of wonder. Students learn how to execute labs, analyze data, and discuss results. Each student also produces a long-term experimental science project.


Class 7

Chemistry

Students learn about the order and beauty of God’s created world through a study of various topics from Chemistry. During this year, applying the scientific method is emphasized, and all students complete an independent, experimental science project.


Class 8

Biology

Class Eight Biology builds on scientific inquiry taught in Classes Six and Seven. Students learn about genetics, cells, organ systems, and botany. Each student completes an experimental research project, which includes a written report and the construction of a three-dimensional model.
