Science is not what is always appears to be. Aside from the strict rules that people are to follow to get the right answer, there can be fun in the mysteries. In the activity book you will be able to explore new terms, ideas, and processes that make up the world of science.
SCIENCE AS A DEFINITION
THE PHYSICAL SCIENCES
THE EARTH SCIENCES
THE LIFE SCIENCES
Science defined by the Oxford dictionary is the intellectual and practical activity encompassing the systematic study of the structure and behavior of the physical and natural world through observation and experiment.
Physical science is the branch that deals with inorganic materials, otherwise known as non-living materials/objects. People who work in the field of physical science can uncover new discoveries like the manipulation of matter and other universal phenomena. Physics, astronomy, and chemistry are a few of the topics you can learn.
Earth science is a field of natural science that deals with the materials of the earth and its atmosphere. People who work in earth science can contribute to the societal understanding of the earth and how humans can protect it. Meteorology, geology, oceanography and environmental science are subcategories of earth science.
Life science is a branch of science that involves the study of organic things, also known as the living. The field of life science can help people understand the world, including plants, animals and human biology. Some of the sub-branches of life science include biology, ecology and agriculture.
DRAW WHAT YOU IMAGINE
Draw what you think of when you think of the word 'science.' Science is a vast sea of opportunities. When you think of science, what do you picture? Do you picture a chemistry lab, or the fishes in the sea? On this page you should draw a picture in the blank space provided of what you picture when you think of the science subject.

MAKE YOUR OWN EXPERIMENT
Physical science is full of new experiments. Make up your own experiment using resources that you'd find in a chemistry lab and write it in the empty white space provided. A periodic table is a great resource for chemicals that could be found and mixed together to make a new reaction.
