About Real Science-4-Kids Building Blocks of Science
Kids ask real science questions. Building Blocks of Science enables them to discover real science answers. Because science disciplines are so interlaced, to learn one subject requires a foundational understanding of another. Building Blocks of Science addresses this by introducing students to the five core scientific disciplines of chemistry, biology, physics, geology, and astronomy.

With Building Blocks of Science, students learn science in a sequential and logical order, beginning with basic building blocks of science and expanding on these as they advance in grade level. Hands-on experiments for each chapter encourage critical thinking, experimentation, and creativity.

Exploring the Building Blocks of Science is a year-long graded program for grades 1-7 covering all five core disciplines each year. It’s based on an upward-spiral teaching method where disciplines are repeatedly visited and built upon over months and across grades, which is proven to lead to better long-term mastery of facts and concepts.

Building Blocks of Science is written to accommodate both secular and Christian homeschoolers. The publisher, Real Science-4-Kids, has received several awards, including the Practical Homeschooling Reader Awards. The study bundles contain a student textbook, teacher’s manual, and laboratory notebook, as well as printable lesson plans, quizzes, and a study notebook. See our optional lab kit here.

What Topics are Covered in Book 3?
Exploring the Building Blocks of Science Book 3 Student Textbook has 22 chapters and introduces students to how chemistry, biology, physics, astronomy, and geology are used to study the planet we live on and the cosmos. Students learn about polymers, DNA, and mixtures; where plants live, the basic cell, and photosynthesis; how electrical energy and magnets work; how the biosphere and hydrosphere shape Earth, Earth's magnetic field; galaxies and Earth in the Milky Way Galaxy.

Students begin open inquiry with suggested questions found in the Teacher’s Manual which also has directions for guiding the experiments. The Laboratory Notebook contains 22 experiments that explore topics covered in the Student Text. Experiments include working with mixtures, making a polymer, observing photosynthesis and seed growth, making electric circuits, exploring electric charge, testing for porosity, observing geological features, modeling a galaxy, making a comet, and many more. Each book has 4 chapters of each of the 5 core science subjects (chemistry, biology, physics, geology, and astronomy) and an introductory and a concluding chapter, for a total of 22 chapters. If you would like a convenient, time-saving way to get nearly all of the materials you will need for the experiments, we now offer a lab kit! This lab kit is already assembled with virtually every non-household item the curriculum requires, so you won't have to go searching for elusive components.
