What is gneiss??                         What makes a tsunami??
What is a contour line??                                     Why is Pluto no longer a planet??

These are just a sampling of questions we'll look at in 8th grade science.  You will certainly learn a great deal about the world around you and even underfoot.  We will use computer simulations, classroom labs, and our textbooks in this grand adventure known as Earth Science.
