Real Science 4 Kids Level 1 Set
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 is getting a new name and a new look! While you'll enjoy the same easy-to-teach and fun-to-learn curriculum as before, your order may contain a book with the new cover displaying the new name: Focus On Middle School.
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. You save 14%! Grades 4-6.
Be sure to order our special science kit designed especially for this curriculum if you plan to do the experiments!
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.

We just purchased the set for my three boys. So far, I love the use of "real" science words to introduce concepts to the boys. The pictures and text are clear and inviting. I felt like I was drowning in our last curriculum. THis is clear and concise and well thought out!

- Tuesday, January 12, 2010Very Real Science!Reviewed By: Cynthia
I'm using this curriculum for 6th, 7th, and 8th grades--one subject for each grade. It is a perfect starting point for all upper-level science. I wish I had had this good of a foundation of the scientific method instead of the usual topical science that is taught in middle school. Real Science 4 Kids is very user friendly, even for this non-science loving family. It is also a very thorough and precise program. I have fun supplementing with additional experiments, some DNA study, and a Human Body unit. These aren't really necessary to have a complete program, just extras for our family.

I am using this program to teach both a 5th grader and a 9th grader, and I am finding it very easy to hold each student to different levels of competency for each concept presented. This series is fun and friendly and I am extremely pleased with it. (Plus, the package was shipped to me quickly and was wrapped extremely well!)Read More Reviews
