Standard Physical Science (4th-6th)
Our Standard Physical Science course (4th-6th) is presented in a straight forward, easily understood, and hands-on manner. Real life projects built by the student make scientific principles tangible and concrete. Not only do the students learn and retain the information, but they will also find themselves enjoying and succeeding in science.
- All Materials Included
- 7 Projects
- 36 chapters, 3 lessons/week
- Total of 108 lessons, 108 Experiments
- Recommended for either 4th, 5th, or 6th grades.
Exploration Education curriculum comes with ALL THE NECESSARY MATERIALS the student will need in order to complete each project and experiment. including the following:
- Project Materials — motors, wood, solar panel, wire, bulbs, wheels, rubber bands, magnets, Alka-seltzer, etc.
- Experiment Materials — nails, paper clips, sandpaper, pH paper, string, balloons, wire, steel wool, etc.
- Templates and Sticker Pages — project templates, sticker pages, experiment supplements, etc.
- Instructional Materials — student logbook, teacher’s manual, online access to the interactive student text.

How it Works:
Read interactive lessons
Students go through the highly engaging lessons online, enjoying the interactive questions, animations, images and videos.
- Text-to-speech: The student has the option to have the text read to them.
- No Expiration Date: There is no specific expiration date for the online lessons. So if your student takes more than a year to go through the course — no problem.
- Quizzes: As the student progresses through the course, they will have vocabulary and section review quizzes.
Build & Experiment
- Students build a project (e.g. electric racer) at the beginning of each section.
- Students then use the project in their experiments throughout that section.
- As an example, students will use the electric racer to experiment with concepts like inertia, velocity, centripetal force, etc.
Record data in your logbook
The student logbook is used to record answers and scientific data using the scientific method. It also includes an index/glossary. The teacher’s manual has the answer key with sample hypothesis and theories, and assessment pages.
