VOCABULARY TERMS and SAMPLE TESTS:
Although this test measures the application of knowledge, certainly a working knowledge of basic vocabulary is essential.  With that said, here is a listing of basic Vocabulary Terms that 8th grade science students should be familiar.  The KEY is rather then memorizing the technical details and extensive vocabulary,  the students should understand the broader concepts and  the basic scientific inquiry skills necessary to investigate these concepts.
