Science Starters: Physical and Earth Science
This is the suggested course sequence that allows one core area of science to be studied per semester. You can change the sequence of the semesters per the needs or interests of your student; materials for each semester are independent of one another to allow flexibility.
Semester 1: Physical Science
Investigate the Possibilities Elementary Physical Science-Forces & Motion From High-speed Jets to Wind-up Toys: Elementary physical science comes alive in this amazing full-color book filled with 20 hands-on activites that ignite a sense of curiosity about the wonderful world God has made. Concepts are introduced in an engaging way-by highlighting the science behind kids at play, like rollerskating, skateboarding, and even running. By guiding students through these easy to understand investigations, they learn to explain, apply, expand, and assess what they have personally observed! Learn how to determine the speed and motion of favorite toys, create a catapult and experience the mechanics of pulleys, set up a floating pencil race, discover why friction creates heat.
Semester 2: Earth Science
Investigate the Possibilities Elementary Earth Science-The Earth Its Structure & Its Changes: Experience the science of fun! Explore the planet like never before with 20 fun and educational experiments. The learning progression helps students engage, investigate, explain, apply, expand, and assess the scientific principles, and is filled with helpful images, diagrams, and inexpensive activities. Students discover why caves and sinkholes form, what is in the soil we walk on every day, how warning signs are present prior to volcanic eruptions, what tests can be used to identify rocks, and more. This comprehensive series makes the study of Gods creation both enjoyable and educational!
