A year and a half ago we switched from A Beka to new science curriculum. DD completed Apologia's General Science last year and is currently studying Physical Science. We are halfway through the book. The second half of the book is all about physics. One of the things I love about Apologia, along with Dr. Wylie's Young Earth Creation teaching, is the experiments. We can actually be successful with most of them. He has us use common household objects and explains what we should be looking for. Here are some pictures of an experiment dd recently did on velocity.
She released 2 eggs simultaneously, one behind the other, and noted that not much happened. BTW, see that top book on the stack? Here's a close up. The kids thought it would be fun to use this specific book on top!
On to the next step!
Then she released one at the top of the ramp and noted what happened when it collided into the egg at the bottom of the ramp. Don't worry. There was minimal damage.
Finally, she released these two eggs simultaneously. Prepared for the predicted mass of destruction????
