What is the Periodic Table? Why do cookies need baking powder? How does a battery work? What are Newton’s Laws of Motion? Through this study of chemistry and physics students will learn the answers to these questions and many more. They will begin to understand and admire the order, principles, beauty, and intricacy of God’s creation. This course covers properties of matter, states of matter, atoms, compounds, mixtures, mechanics, energy, sound, heat, light, electricity, magnetism, simple machines and more.
This class will have a strong emphasis on class and nature journaling which develops two of the most important scientific skills: observation and documentation. Learning to really see is a skill that must be learned and practiced. Be sure to plan time every week to get outside and look around. Charlotte Mason said, "Never be within doors when you can rightly be without."
As we study together, we will gain an even deeper understanding of our amazing Creator who has made all things well, and who has given us a role in taking care of the things He has made. We can say with the psalmist, “O Lord, how many are your works! In wisdom you made them all; the earth is full of your creatures.” Psalm 104:24.
