  • Chemical World (Chemistry)
  • Earth and Space Science (Environmental Science, Geology and Astrophysics)

Homeschool High School Science Resources

The Australian and the American systems use a different sequence when teaching science. There are no high school homeschooling texts written for Australian students. You can approach high school using a literature approach where you pick different reading resources in the above topics or you can use a text book.

The Australian Curriculum for high school teaches a spiral approach to science until Year 10.

In year 11 and 12 students can stop learning science or they can also choose science electives in Chemistry, Physics and Biology.

Please see our high school science outcomes for a basic overview of the content of the science curriculum.

In order to help you plan your science curriculum I’ve listed some resources that you can use to meet the requirements of the National Curriculum. There are other options but I’ve only chosen my preference. These resources are produced by Christian authors and have a creationist world view.

I’ve kept using the Apologia Exploring Creation series until year 8 because I love it. They also make their own science notebooks. They can work on this fairly independently if you leave the books till they can read confidently. It’s great stuff in those books and if they can absorb the info in those books they are probably a lot better off than pushing them through something that they aren’t really understanding. There is actually more books than they can do in the primary years, if you want to do all of them, and I like Jennie Fulbright’s style.
