Each lesson guides you through the subject and (most) end with a lab activity (such as finding the mass of at least five different objects) and a challenge (such as constructing a container that can hold at least 1 kilogram of table salt).

The lessons incorporate real-life connections, such as how simple machines can be used to reduce the amount of energy exerted and how they help in all sorts of situations, for example, replacing a flat tire.

Their video lessons start with a review of the previous lessons – a great way to reinforce the lessons to your child. Then, the lesson is taught via a video with the instructor writing on the screen just as if you were in the classroom and he was writing on the chalkboard.

You can also see the instructor in the bottom corner of the screen which really adds to the experience.

The videos are an invaluable addition to the textbook and are incredibly helpful, especially if physical science isn’t your forte. Even if you are well versed in the subject, the videos are a great way for your child to work on their studies without needing you to be as hands-on; providing you with an opportunity to help your other children with their studies.

The videos do not expire, unlike some online programs, so there is no need to feel rushed to work through the lessons should something arise that would cause you to need more time. I so appreciated this!

I recommend Friendly Physical Science as a wonderful resource! Miss 12 enjoyed the textbook and video lessons.
