General Science

Course Description: This newly revised middle school curricula surveys many branches of science to better equip the middle school student for high school science.  Students will not only learn about the scientific method, but will explore Earth Science (astronomy, geology, meteorology, oceanography, paleontology), General Chemistry, General Physics, General Biology and Life Science, Marine Science, and Environmental Science all through the eyes of our Creator.  Hands on experiments are incorporated throughout the year to help students see the principle and concepts taught in the text.  This course will culminate with taking all of the principles learned throughout the year to create a Rube-Goldberg machine.
