In Science 5, students will get a foundational look at the sciences of chemistry, biology, and physics.  This preliminary course will engage homeschoolers with information about how electrons, neutrons, and protons make up atoms, which make up molecules, which make up elements, which in turn make up every living and nonliving thing in existence.  Homeschool students will then take a look introductory biological functions and finally at how basic physical forces like gravity manipulate physical things.  This course will serve as a vital background for upcoming middle school science courses.
