CPO Physical, Earth, and Space Science Text with Labs

CPO Physical Earth and Space Science Text with LabsThis morning we were watching some Youtube videos for one of the CPO labs and I realized that I hadn’t posted this assignment and lab list.  It is very helpful when we are watching videos for me to just come here and click on a link.  After I typed in the first Youtube link for my boys, I quickly came here and posted our assignment list so I wouldn’t have to do that again.

This is a continuation of the CPO Physical, Earth, and Space Science that we used last year.  Here is a link to earlier labs and assignments.  Many of the labs in the CPO lab book require expensive equipment so I have adapted some and substituted others.  The books in the boxes are ones my younger son reads instead of doing the textbook.  He joins us for the labs though.  The last few chapters have blank boxes because we have a bunch of astronomy books around here that he can choose from.
