Science

This section is my summary of studying Science.

Science, this is the fifth (5th) of five (5) subjects in the “LIFEPAC” curriculum books or computerized “Switched-On Schoolhouse” curriculum that we use for our education. Switched-On Schoolhouse Science is an exciting, Bible-based curriculum for grades 3-12. Students focus on the development of observational skills as they study the physical universe God created. The program involves a combination of on- and off-computer assignments including experiments. Grades 3-9 observe each area of science on an individual survey basis, usually unit by unit. Grades 10-12 focus on specific areas of science—Biology, Chemistry, and Physics. The four major strands are as follows: Life Science (Plants and Animals, Human Anatomy and Personal Care, Biology), Space and Earth Science (Geology, Weather, Space), Physical Science (Chemistry, Physics), Nature of Science (Scientific Method, Experimentation, Technology).

I’m currently in ninth (9th) grade Science. I enjoy learning about animals, chemistry, electronics, and their behavioral patterns the most. I find that the experimentation process of discovering these patterns is like finding a secret treasure map. The excitement lies in the anticipation of the outcome.
