    Nothing Wishy-Washy About Physics
    Physics fits my personality. There is nothing wishy-washy about physics; everything has order and purpose, everything that exists is either matter or energy. Lay that foundation well and your child will more easily comprehend mechanics, electricity, magnetism, optics, electronics, and a slew of other physics-based subjects.

    Thirty Easy-to-Understand Lessons
    Christian Kids Explore Physics gives your fourth- through eighth-grade child an overview of physics with a series of thirty easy-to-understand lessons. Lessons include review exercises, very detailed coloring pages for the younger student's hands-on activity, thinking exercises for the older child, and an answer key. These hands-on activities and experiments are not only fun, but they will actually help your child gain a solid grasp of the concepts.

    Topics Include:
    Unit 1 - The Foundations of Physics
    Unit 2 - Matter
    Unit 3 - Mechanics
    Unit 4 - Matter in Motion
    Unit 5 - Energy in Motion
    Unit 6 - Electricity and Magnetism

    About the Christian Kids Explore Series
    The Christian Kids Explore series contains several thirty- to thirty-five-week courses that are based on a classical and "living books" approach. Each of the straightforward lessons builds upon the last, allowing the child to develop a thorough command of the concepts. The age-appropriate, hands-on activities and experiments are not only fun, but they will actually help your child gain a solid grasp of the concepts. Each book is incredibly user-friendly, supplying suggestions for extra reading and even recommendations of topic-appropriate videos.

    Fantastic Christian Perspective August 1, 2013
    Reviewer: Kay  
    We enjoy Christian Kids Explore Physics because it presents physics from a Christian perspective. The textbook language is very engaging. The activities are simple to do and require common, everyday supplies, while still clearly teaching and supporting the concepts presented. Frankly, I have found nothing about the curriculum that I do not like! And, the CD with support material is a fantastic bonus! I highly recommend this curriculum...as does my son! :)

    This was perfect for him! March 3, 2010
    Reviewer: Anonymous Person  
    I was so pleased to find a physics text geared for an age range instead of a narrow grade level--particularly for this younger age range. I have a gifted child who has never fit the standard scope and sequence.  He really wanted to study physics, but most books are for older middle school and have pre-requisites. This was perfect for him! He has chronic fatigue syndrome and we work hard to find material that motivates him.  He loves the humor in it and is moving through it quickly (2 lessons at each sitting).  He also loves that there are Bible verses associated with each lesson. I like the fact that the writers call the end of unit tests "Show what you know"--in public school he had developed some test and grade anxiety.  Draw backs--I don't like that the writers include humorous answer options in the end of unit tests. If someone were to check his portfolio, would this be taken seriously? I am not THAT concerned about it at this age--and with my son I am far more concerned that he enjoys what he is learning and is motivated, considering his special needs.
