Science 8 aims to describe the factors that affect the motion of an object based on the Laws of Motion. They can differentiate the concept of work as used in science and in layman’s language. They know the factors that affect the transfer of energy, such as temperature difference, and the types of the medium. They can explain how active faults generate earthquakes and how tropical cyclones originate from warm ocean waters. They recognize other members of the solar system.
Learners can explain the behavior of matter in terms of the particles it is made of. They recognize that ingredients in food and medical products are made up of these particles and are absorbed by the body in the form of ions.
Learners recognize reproduction as a process of cell division resulting in growth of organisms. They have delved deeper into the process of digestion, giving emphasis on proper nutrition for overall wellness. They can participate in activities that protect and conserve economically important species used for food.
At the end of the unit, the students will be able to:
- using models or illustrations, explain how movement along faults generate earthquake ;
- differentiate the epicenter of an earthquake from its focus, intensity of an earthquake from its magnitude and active and inactive faults;
- explain how earthquake waves provide information about the interior of the earth;
- explain how typhoon develops and how it is affected by landmasses and bodies of water;
- trace the path of typhoons that enter the Philippine Area of Responsibility;
- compare and contrast comets, meteors and asteroids.
