This Book[edit | edit source]

Welcome to the wikibooks free text "introductory physical science"! This free text is built as a year-long course in 7th-9th grade basic physical science. This book is a resource and a basis for the course, which is meant to be taught in a laboratory setting. This text centers on student hands-on work as well as answering questions using critical thinking. This book encourages students to write their own methods for each piece of work before they are simply given the proper procedure. Making mistakes is part of all learning, and in the context of science, it is no less important.
