Big Ideas for Small Group Learning

Introduce, review, and reinforce Physical Science concepts with these out-of-the-box-ready Science in a Nutshell kits. As opposed to life sciences, physical sciences study the organization of non-living things. From planetary motion to chemical interaction, these kits provide endless study and exploration opportunities through inquiry-based and hands-on learning. Fun, meaningful activities are designed for student-directed individual or small-group learning.

Physical Sciences

  • Physics – Discover the forces that determine how things move, why they move, and where they’re going
  • Chemistry – Study the fascinating way non-living chemicals interact with each other and our world
  • Astronomy – Examine the motions of the planets and stars that make up our solar system, the Milky Way galaxy, and our universe as a whole
