Welcome to 8th grade science for the 2021-2022 school year. My name is Mr. Nye. Please check out the Google Classroom pages for information about assignments and other important information.
You will need to take notes during class either on a Google Doc on on paper. If you choose to use paper and pencil, you will need a notebook and a writing utensil for science class.
