Chapter 1: Introduction to Physical Science

Created by: CK-12

Introduction

Are you curious about other planets? Did you ever wish you could explore them like the Mars rover in this picture? If so, then you’re thinking like a scientist. Scientists are curious about things in nature, and they do investigations to better understand them. They often use technology—from microscopes to Mars rovers—to extend their own senses so they can learn even more. In this unit, you’ll read about how scientists think and how they investigate and explore the natural world.
