Exploring the Building Blocks of Science Book 3 introduces students to real science and gives students an overview of science in daily life. Foundational scientific concepts and terminology are presented clearly and in a manner that’s easy for kids to understand. Using this book gives kids a solid base on which to build a further study of science. This year-long curriculum contains four chapters each of five scientific disciplines: chemistry, biology, physics, geology, and astronomy, as well as an introduction to the material covered and a concluding chapter, for a total of 22 chapters. The many graphics in the full color textbook reinforce the concepts presented and make the book fun for kids and teachers alike to read. Students will learn about different types of mixtures and separating them, polymers, DNA, plant cells, photosynthesis, the energy of atoms and molecules, electricity and electric charge, the hydrosphere, Earth's cycles, the geomagnetic field, our Milky Way galaxy, other galaxies, other celestial objects, and much more.
The Laboratory Notebook introduces kids to the excitement of doing hands-on, real, but easy-to-perform science experiments. The Teacher's Manual provides instructions for guiding students through the experimental process, suggests guided inquiry questions to help students think critically about the experiments they are performing, lists objectives for each experiment, and provides answers where applicable.
