This middle school physical science course is specifically designed to be the second course taken during junior high. It is created to give middle school students an understanding of the basic world that surrounds them each day of their lives and the forces in creation, so that they can appreciate the real-world relevance of scientific inquiry and the beauty of creation. We believe that students’ educations should prepare them for life, not just an academic year. Thus, we generally recommend it as an 8th grade course, but students can use it for their 9th grade course work. We recommend that your student take this course while taking or after completing pre-algebra math.

Our award-winning, homeschool, junior high physical science course covers:

  • Measurement and Unitsso that students can convert between units in scientific study
  • The Earth, Atmosphere, Hydrosphere, and Lithosphere so that students can appreciate the wonder of our blue planet
  • Weatherso that students can understand the factors that affect the Earth’s weather and how weather is predicted
  • Introduction to Physics to understand the mechanics of motion, forces, and energy
  • Our Newton’s Laws and the Forces in Creation to understand friction, static and kinetic energy, gravity, electromagnetic forces, and electrical circuits
  • Our Solar System, Stars, and Galaxies to introduce the wonders of our universe
  • An Introduction to Chemistry for a basic introduction to atoms and molecules

The Student Notebook for this homeschool science course, helps middle school students work toward becoming independent learners with the companion student notebook. The student notebook includes:

  • A detailed, yet flexible, day-to-day schedule that your students can follow to stay on track with their assigned course
  • Module organization and note taking space to help guide your student in their independence
  • Complete lab forms for your students to fill in and document laboratory work
  • Additional materials that go beyond the science in the textbook and into the science of the real world
  • Rubrics for grading lab reports

The softbound solutions and tests manual, which contains answers to Study Guide questions, module summaries, tests, and test solutions. One test packet is included with this manual.

Because of the differences between the first and second editions, students in a group setting cannot use both. They must all have the same edition.
