    Christian Kids Explore Physics is authored by husband and wife team, Robert W. Ridlon, Jr. and Elizabeth J. Ridlon. Their approach to teaching physics is simplistic: We learn new and complicated things every day---from computer programs and games to new moves in a sport to a new song on a musical instrument. We are always learning. Physics is no different---it takes time and perseverance.

    The curriculum presents the concepts of physics from a Christian worldview perspective.

    Christian Kids Explore Physics contains 30 lessons and six unit reviews which cover the topic of physics. The curriculum is comprised of the following components:

    A Note from the Author

    How to Use This Book

    Unit One

    The Foundations of Physics: What Physics is All About; Measuring; Famous Physicists; Wrap Up

    Unit Two

    Matter: The Composition of Matter; Atomic Physics; Molecules and Mass; Solid and Liquid Matter; Gases; Change in States of Matter; Wrap Up

    Unit Three

    Mechanics: Force; Gravity; Work; Friction; Energy; Wrap Up

    Unit Four

    Matter in Motion: Motion in a Straight Line; Motion in a Circle; Newtons Laws; Projectile Motion; Momentum; Wrap Up

    Unit Five

    Energy in Motion: Electromagnetic Energy; Radio and Television; Light and Color; X-rays; Heat; Sound; Music; Wrap Up

    Unit Six

    Electricity and Magnetism: Electricity; Electric Current; Magnetism; Earths Magnetic Field; Wrap Up



    The curriculum also includes: Glossary, Coloring Pages, Book and Resource List, Answer Keys, Index and About the Authors.

    Each lesson unit introduces the topic with a unit timeline, vocabulary words, and materials needed for the unit. The lesson itself is made up of two building blocks: Teaching Time and Hands on Time. I would highly recommend purchasing the resource cd download which contains the reproducible pages in the back of the text.

    Overall, we have been pleased with this curriculum as it lends itself to the Classical Education and Charlotte Mason philosophies. Scientific concepts are presented in an engaging and easy to understand manner. This allows the student to build upon their interest through research and scientific experimentation.

    This curriculum is exactly what i was looking for. It's quick thorough lessons are perfect for my 8th Grader. It doesn't get so deep into the subject as to turn her off to Physics at her age, but yet, gives a very detailed explanation of all basic information that needs to be covered. Great experiments and easy to understand. The Chemistry book was great, as well. Easily self directed by my daughter.

    Our family isn't really all that into science. From the first lesson the kids and I were able to understand terms that had been made to seem so difficult with other textbooks.

    We will be continuing with the "Christian Kids Explore" series.
