Publisher Description:

Do you want to teach your homeschooling student physical science, but you're not sure where to start? Don't worry! Alpha Omega Publications has the perfect solution: the LIFEPAC General Science II Set! This comprehensive study of physical science offers ten engaging worktexts with colorful, step-by-step lessons which make learning physical science easy—and fun! In the LIFEPAC General Science II Set your child will focus on the study of health, the structure of matter, energy, and machines. Lesson topics in this Alpha Omega curriculum include: the definition of science, atoms and molecules, acids, bases and salts, health and nutrition, kinetic and potential energy, magnetism, electricity, and much more.

A comprehensive teacher's guide also is included with general teaching resources, detailed teaching notes, answer keys, alternate tests, and a list of equipment needed for experiments! What could be better? Plus, there are plenty of additional learning resources and activities designed to encourage individualization of the program. Student worktexts include daily instruction, review questions, and self tests.

The 8th Grade Science Experiments DVD is a recommended resource not included in this set.

Category Description for LIFEPAC Science:

LIFEPAC worktexts provide a complete, year-long science curriculum for each grade. From a Christian publisher, the approach is systematic mastery learning. It's very easy to teach from, with no need to write out lesson plans or prepare materials. You will have to gather equipment and materials for science experiments, however. Each grade contains 10 small worktexts which the students progress through at their own pace. Each unit studied includes vocabulary, text, and comprehension questions to assure students retain the material. The science series is more activity-oriented than AOP's other subject Lifepacs, with plenty of experiments to help illustrate science concepts. Grades 1-10 worktexts contain colorful illustrations; grades 11-12 are only available in black and white. The Complete boxed sets also include a Teacher's Guide with teaching tips and answer keys.

Alpha Omega is in the process of updating the covers on the LIFEPACs. It is only a cosmetic change; the LIFEPAC content has not been modified. While they are transitioning to the new covers, please be aware that you may receive a mix of LIFEPACS with old and new covers in a set.

Looks like a good solid physical science course for my daughter. Her first time to use the lifepacs, I think she will like them. My others have.

We are trying these life pacs because the format seems easy to work with, especially for an independent learner.

Quality program covering all the normal 9th grade topics. Not just fill-in the blank. Requires thinking. Experiments work.

We are a Jewish homeschool family. How "Christian" is the science in the Alpha Omega LifePac Science curriculum?
Laura on Jun 15, 2021
BEST ANSWER: We used it 2 yrs ago, so, as far as I recall: I believe it is definitely “Creation” centered, (as in “God created this beautiful world”) but I don’t remember it being Christ focused. We are Christian, but not “mainstream Christian”, so we have trained our children to recognize and bring to us any questions about doctrine disagreement they find in their school books. I’d guess you have to do the same. They’ll have to learn to discern things this way as they mature and move into the adult world too.
Do I need the science lab kit?
A shopper on Aug 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The science lab kit provides the equipment and supplies you need for the labs in the course. You can choose whether or not you do the labs. There is also a DVD that provides videos of the labs - #008548 - http://www.rainbowresource.com/proddtl.php?id=008548.
How long do the lessons take to complete?
User on Jun 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The length of the lesson is up to you. Work with a student to determine how many pages a day should be accomplished. Remember that life Lifepacs were designed to be self-paced and lead students into more independent learning and goal setting.
