Physical science has to do with anything that is the opposite of the biological sciences. These free physical science STEM projects will be just what you need to make your physical science lessons fun and interactive.
Physical science studies the properties and nature of all things that are non-living, for matter and energy alike. Physical science is all about the physical world all around us.
The several branches of physical science are physics, chemistry, astronomy, and earth sciences. Of course, those branch off to other sub-branches of each category.
Science is awesome. The more we study about the science of the physical things around us, the more we are in awe of God’s amazing creation.

You can look all around nature with your kids. We look at how things work, look at how chemicals react together, see how the earth is made up, and look in awe at the skies’ majesty.
We see around us the undeniable creation hand-crafted by an undeniable Creator.
Then, we start to realize that it takes more to believe we got here from a “big bang theory” than it does to have faith God created it all. Physical science rocks!
