Course Description (For Lab Rats Level)

The Physical Science curriculum is designed to continue student investigations of the physical sciences that began in grades K-8 and provide students the necessary skills to have a richer knowledge base in physical science.  This course is designed to provide a review of the concepts learned in Earth Science and offer an introduction to concepts for Chemistry.  This curriculum covers concepts in Earth and Space Science, Chemistry, Motion, Forces and Motion, Forces in Fluids, Work, Power, and Machines, Energy, Thermal Energy and Heat, Mechanical Waves and Sound, The Electromagnetic Spectrum and Light, Optics, Electricity, and Magnetism includes the more abstract concepts such as the conceptualization of the structure of atoms, motion and forces, and the conservation of energy and matter, the action/reaction principle, and wave behavior.  Students further explore these physical science concepts through experience in weekly laboratory investigations and field work using the processes of inquiry and scientific method.
