I'm a new science teacher and I want to investigate this. I even met someone in my 2nd Language Acquisition class who is interested and would like to work with me on it. Here's a link.
There's also this. I don't know if they're related.
Any advice? I have four classes of 8th grade Physical Science students to work with.

You are an awsome teacher it you are willing to dedicate that kind of time and energy to your students!

this science subject, what does it include? is it chemistry, physics, biology all bundled together? because in my country they are all separate.

I've noticed that kids that age actually learn better from activities where they can learn by doing.
I would suggest that you give classroom activities, but give the students as assignment a report stating their predictions of the outcome of the experiment, based on information available to them.
In my high school chemistry class we did this, a ...[text shortened]... erstood the principles involved in the experiment. I think you can apply this to your students.
