Science isn't just for the specially gifted, and physics doesn't have to be reserved for high school! Accessible to all, thirty challenging lessons present the basic concepts of physics, including motion, electricity, magnetism, and matter. Featuring conversational, accessible lessons that can be used with students in multiple grades, this easy-to-use homeschool curriculum will give children knowledge of scientific principles that they can bring to bear when they reach the advanced sciences!
Units and lessons follow a consistent format. Units begin with a short introduction that provides objectives, vocabulary, and materials needed; a coloring page and a unit 'wrap-up' multiple-choice assessment are also included.
Individual lessons include:
A 'Teaching Time' passage to be read aloud or independently (Scripture and defined terms are in the margin)
Five fill-in-the-blank review exercises
A 'Hands-On Time' activity that reinforces concepts from the lesson (materials needed list and step-by-step directions provided)
A 'Think about It' critical-thinking exercise based on the results from the Hands-on Time activity
The included Companion Resource CD includes daily lesson plans, all reproducibles, materials lists, and a bonus literature study guide.
