Homeschool Science Curriculum

Some recommendations for:

PHYSICAL, EARTH &
LIFE SCIENCES

General Overview

As a student progresses through grades K to 9, there are three areas of science they should cover; PHYSICAL, EARTH and LIFE. Generally the student cycles through these three once in K-3, again in 4-6, and once again 7 - 9. It is not nearly as important when and how you cover these, you just want to make sure you do. You want that solid foundation because when the student is in high school, life science breaks into biology and physiology. Physical science breaks into chemistry and physics. And although not typically studied in high school, earth science would break into geology and astronomy.

These are the general topics covered in each area:

PHYSICAL SCIENCE: Forces, machines, motion, energy, electricity, magnetism, sound, light, and chemistry.

EARTH SCIENCE: Geology, meteorology, oceanography, and astronomy.

LIFE SCIENCE: Biology, ecosystems, zoology, botany, and physiology.

Recommendations

Customers often say; "We loved using Exploration Education science. What can you recommend for earth or life science that would be similar in the way it is taught?"

Below is a short list of curriculum companies that include the supplies and provide a hands-on learning style. Although we have not personally used these products, from what we have seen and the comments from homeschoolers that have used them, we believe they are worth checking out.
