Simplify Science with Memorization

When you know basic facts about a subject, it is easier to build up from those facts. Learning more difficult concepts in science is aided by knowing some basic facts. While the list of science facts to memorize is seemingly endless there are definitely some basic science memorization lists that will get you started.

The Ultimate Guide of Things to Memorize: Simplify Science with Memorization from Starts At Eight. Make science easier by committing the basics to memory! Things like classification, human body systems, laws of motion and more! Includes resources to learn about and help memorize the terms. Use in your homeschool for elementary, middle school, and high school.

Science Memorization

1. Basic Cell Biology

Learn the basic structures of both a plant & animal cell.

Plant Cell : Animal Cell

All About Cells & DNA - A Middle School Helper from Starts At Eight. Help your middle school student learn the basics of cells (both plant cells and animal cells) and DNA. An extensive list of resources including videos, printables, books and more!

2. Classification of Living Things

Classification - Taxonomy

The classification of living things is called Taxonomy.

  • Kingdom (Animal, Plant, Fungi, Protist, Moneran)
  • Phylum
  • Class
  • Order
  • Genus
  • Species

Classification Worksheets: One: Two

3. Biomes

6. The pH Scale

A pH scale is a measure of how acidic or basic a substance is. While the pH scale formally measures the activity of hydrogen ions in a substance or solution, it is typically approximated as the concentration of hydrogen ions. You need to know that a pH of below 7 is acidic, above 7 is basic, and at 7 is considered neutral.
