Module 3: The Atmosphere

Links and cool science experiments about the earth's atmosphere, pressure and temperature, to supplement Module 3 of Apologia's Exploring Creation with Physical Science. It is recommended as an 8th grade middle school course, but may also be used for ninth grade or younger advanced students.This curriculum is popular in Christian schools and homeschools to learn the science necessary for advanced education. I pray that by the end of the course, you will more deeply appreciate the wonder of God's creation!
