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.
1. Basic Cell Biology
Learn the basic structures of both a plant & animal cell.
2. Classification of Living Things
The classification of living things is called Taxonomy.
- Kingdom (Animal, Plant, Fungi, Protist, Moneran)
Classification Worksheets: One: Two
4. Names and Order of Planets in the Solar System
5. Periodic Table of Elements
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.

7. Freezing/Boiling Point of Water
8. Newton’s Laws of Motion
9. Laws of Thermodynamics
- Study video and online quiz
- Laws of Thermodynamics Foldable Booklet

People who are against memorization really can’t do math or science properly. It really does build on previous facts.

I feel the same way! I know there are some who are against memorization but I think it is such an important building block!
