Course Description: Join us for some hands-on science as we dig into Apologia General Science! General Science is an engaging and comprehensive overview of Geology, Paleontology, Archeology, the Fossil Record, the Scientific Method, Applied Sciences, Biology, Anatomy, and DNA designed to transition middle school students to the format and pace of upper-level science courses.
General Science is lab-based, and we will complete most of the labs found in the textbook. Some experiments will be completed individually, while others will be done in pairs or as demonstrations. In addition to labs, we will also discuss the weekly reading assignments and learn how to write formal lab reports. Weekly reading assignments, bookwork, and module summaries will completed at home. Module tests may be given in class or sent home to be completed with the parents. Students will be expected to keep an organized binder for their assignments, tests, lab reports, and other handouts. A syllabus will be provided detailing our reading and assignment schedule for each semester.
