Category Description for PHYSICAL SCIENCE:

Physical science combines some areas of physics and chemistry as it encompasses studies of non-living matter and energy. Physics and chemistry are typically studied in this manner up through 8th grade.

A totally hands-on approach to physical science through activities, requiring minimal preparation time for Mom or Dad. Already in lesson plan format, all you need to do is gather the needed materials and go. Each activity is a complete lesson formulated around a specific concept, such as "Understanding Refraction." The lesson goal, skills learned, materials needed, preparation required, and approximate time needed for preparation and lesson are all stated at the beginning of each activity. The activity itself is presented in question and answer format; as you lead your children through the activity, you simultaneously lead them to express their thoughts and ideas about each step. The dialogue is all written out for you, and carefully designed to encourage the development of students' critical thinking skills. There are no texts, no worksheets, no "clutter" - students learn by actively observing and doing. Because each lesson is laid out so thoroughly, step-by-step, you can succeed with this science program even if you are "science-shy" or have no science background yourself. No lab equipment is required. Materials are inexpensive and should be available locally.
