Physical Science 7th- 10th

Physical Science is the study of the how things work together on Earth and throughout the universe. God put great care in creating our world and made things with purpose and order. In this lab we will examine such things as the atmosphere, different cycles, weather, forces and motion, electricity, atoms and molecules, waves, sound, and light. The scope and sequence will follow that of Apologia's Exploring Creation with Physical Science and we will employ experiments and demonstrations based upon those presented in that curriculum. While some alternative experiments will be used, the concepts presented will be the same. For this lab, the use of Apologia text is recommended, but not required, although student's should be using a physical science text in their home studies to be able to follow the concepts presented in this lab.
