Mr. Oliver

Hey Eagles! I am your 8th grade science teacher for the year. Science is a way of identifying and answering questions about the world around you. This class will be studying physical and earth science. In short, physical science is simply beginning physics and chemistry. Earth science is the branch of science dealing with the physical constitution of the earth and its atmosphere. This course is designed to serve as a foundation for high school science courses. Each student will participate in hands-on experiments, as well as group and individual discovery learning activities. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call me at the school and leave a message at 713-814-7292, or email me at and I will get back you as soon as possible.
