Timberdoodle's Review
Friendly Physical Science
Your child may not have a burning desire to know how things work in our world, but understanding the basics is fundamental to leading an informed adult life. Friendly Physical Science provides your young teen with an approachable means to explore and make sense of how and why things do what they do. Using straightforward narration and more than 300 colorful diagrams and photos, Friendly Physical Science makes even the most complex ideas understandable.

For the student who learns best by doing, there are also optional hands-on, minds-on engineering design challenges (STEM learning!) as well as labs that bring the bookwork alive. The Friendly Physical Science set includes the Friendly Physical Science textbook, workbook, and the tests and solutions manual.
