This course will introduce basic (non-math-based) chemistry and physics concepts to prepare the young middle school student for further studies in these subjects in later years. The class is designed to be extremely hands-on, with a large portion of class time spent performing fun experiments to make the concepts come to life for young minds. Topics to be covered include states of matter, atoms and molecules, crystals and polymers, acid/base chemistry, mixtures, laws of motion, energy, electricity, magnetism, and simple machines. Homework will utilize the Notebooking Journal, which includes reading assignments, vocabulary, short-answer questions, optional lapbooks, and occasional small projects.
