Physical Science is generally recommended as a 7th-9th grade course. This activity can be counted as a high school science credit (but for the UNC system universities, chemistry or physics would be needed to count towards the physical type science requirement for admissions). The text discusses such topics as the atmosphere, the hydrosphere, weather, the structure of the earth, environmentalism, the physics of motion, Newton’s Laws, gravity, and astrophysics. Students perform many hands-on experiments in this activity. There is an emphasis on solid, high school level formal lab report writing. Students also spend time exploring and reporting on current events in the scientific world as well as participating in an egg drop competition.
