Homeschool Science Curriculum
Highly recommended for Jr. or Sr. high physical science
The advanced version includes all of the standard version’s lessons, experiments, and projects and expands it by adding 72 lessons and three projects. It thoroughly supports all of the content standards set by the National Science Education Standards for physical science.
36 chapters 180 lessons
Five lessons each week
There are a few basic tools and supplies that will be needed such as a pencil, scissors, paper. For a specific list, click here.
• All necessary materials for the 10 projects and 144 experiments/activities

• Interactive student text (CD) with 180 lessons & step by step experiment instructions.
• Teacher’s Manual
Chapters & Questions
The advanced version adds two lessons per week to the standard version’s lessons (included in this course) totaling five lessons each week. These additional lessons cover topics that are more involved and lay a solid foundation for future science courses as well. The follow up questions are designed to reinforce both comprehension and problem solving skills. Click here for lesson samples.
Projects & Experiments
Along with the seven standard version projects, this course adds three more projects designed to further challenge and complete the student’s physical science education. Students not only follow the scientific method when conducting their experiments, but they also learn and follow the steps involved in an accurate lab write up. Click here for more details on the projects.
In addition to the vocabulary and review quizzes found at the end of each section, the advanced version includes four quarter exams. Also included are study guides specifically designed to teach the student how to prepare for the exam.
Student logbook & Teacher’s Manual
The advanced version student logbook is used to record answers to questions, scientific data, and lab write-ups. Each page is laid out to easily facilitate accurate and clear records of the experiments, resulting in a complete portfolio of the student’s work. It also includes an index/glossary. The teacher’s manual has assessment pages, answer key, and unit exams. Click here for logbook samples pages.
Cathy Duffy Review
“All of this makes the Standard or Advanced Physical Science kit an excellent choice for those looking for a hands-on physical science course.”
