The three main branches of science are Biology, Chemistry and Physics. 


Biology literally means the study of living things.  This includes the human body, plants, animals, and micro-organisms as well as how all living things interact with one another.


Chemistry is a study of the building blocks of everything that exists and how they react together.  It is sometimes referred to as the 'central science' because it links in with Biology and Physics.


Physics studies matter (anything that has weight and takes up space) and it's motion as well as how it interacts with energy and forces.  It is a huge subject and also includes the study of space and the universe.
