DESCRIPTION

Build a solid science foundation for your elementary-aged children so they will be well prepared for upper-level courses! Real Science-4-Kids is an engaging curriculum that focuses on fundamental concepts, making it a great choice for families who want just one science course before junior high. This course introduces high school level terminology, but explains it at an introductory level, giving elementary children a familiarity with the concepts that they'll build upon later.

Note: Real Science For Kids has a new name and a new look! While you'll enjoy the same easy-to-teach and fun-to-learn curriculum as before, now you'll get the new cover displaying the new name: Focus On Middle School, which is intended for grades 5-8.

Each topic (Chemistry, Biology, and Physics) is covered in an individual 10-chapter softcover book; the three together provide a year of science if you do one chapter per week. Each chapter has an experiment that is designed around the scientific method, encourages investigation, and use mostly household items. The separate teacher's manuals for each topic contain lesson planning tips, background information, and answers to the review questions. This set includes three (Chemistry, Biology, and Physics) teacher's manuals, three student texts, and three lab worksheet packs.

Chemistry topics covered: matter, molecules, chemical reactions, acids, basis & pH, acid-base neutralization, mixtures, separating mixtures, energy molecules, polymers, biological polymers, DNA, and proteins.

Biology topics covered: living creatures, cells, photosynthesis, parts of a plant, how a plant grows, protests, the frog life cycle, the butterfly life cycle, ecosystems, and food, air and water cycles.

Physics topics covered:: what is physics, force, energy and work, potential and kinetic energy, motion, energy of atoms and molecules, electrical energy and charge, moving electric charges and heat, magnets and electromagnets, light and sound, and conservation of energy.

Be sure to order our special science kit designed especially for this curriculum so you can do the experiments!
