Physical Science, 3rd Edition, eBook

Exploring Creation with Physical Science, 3rd Edition was completely rethought and rewritten with your student in mind. This is not the same as 2nd Edition and covers more physical science information.

This course is designed to be the last science course the student takes before high school biology and generally recommended as an 8th-grade course, but students can use it for their 9th-grade coursework and it is now available as an ebook on iTunes and Amazon.






Take your studies wherever you go! Exploring Creation with Physical Science, 3rd Edition, is part of Apologia’s award-winning homeschool science curriculum for middle school students. 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. 

What’s Inside Exploring Creation with Physical Science, 3rd Edition eBook?

There are even more hands-on activities than the previous editions. In addition to the required experiments, we’ve added optional “You Do Science” sections that are quick and easy activities to help students truly comprehend the concepts they are learning. There are 36 experiments and 17 “You Do Science” activities.


While students complete all experiments, only one formal lab report is required per module. Students are instructed on both informal and formal lab report writing techniques and will document all of their work in their notebooks. Don’t worry, we walk through and explain every step and why it is essential!
