Building Blocks of Science - Book K
Our price: $27.50
Without a textbook to guide them some moms will wonder if they have taught enough science. The Building Blocks of Science Book K takes that worry away. Book K is a fun way for your kindergartener to be introduced to five areas of science - chemistry, biology, physics, astronomy, and geology - with drawing, activity, and coloring pages.
Scientific concepts and terminology are presented clearly and in a manner that’s easy for kids to understand. The illustrations that clarify a concept, like atoms and molecules, are easy to understand and remember. Book K even includes simple experiments, observations, and outdoor activities for the five core science subjects. What a low-fuss way for your child to begin learning basic science concepts!
Some families notice the many coloring pages with minimal text and think that this is just a coloring book. Building Blocks of Science Book K is partly a coloring book, but there is nothing "just" about it. Imagine, at an age that many publicly educated students receive little to no science education, your kindergartners will be introduced to concepts they'll continue to build on through college. There is much more here than simple coloring; there is differentiating between atom models, predicting physics outcomes, and completing basic activities. Children who enjoy coloring pages will be thrilled at the coloring assignments. For those who eschew such work, parents can adapt the tasks to include marking, circling, or discussing parts of pictures rather than coloring them. The minimal instruction is a quick overview for young learners, but for those who desire to go deeper, the text can lend itself as a springboard for more extensive discussion.

My child is really into science so I use this to plan their lessons. They color while I read a loud from other science resource.
Interesting approach to science. It's a bit repetitive...which can be necessary in some areas like chemistry, but seems a redundant and dull in other areas.
Super repetitive. It is basically a big coloring book with some science terms.
I think this Science book is okay, not bad but not amazing either. A lot of coloring and I doubt my kid will retain a lot of information from it. But that’s okay! It goes through several subject and it’s very simple, I like that. Later on I will probably supplement with subjects that my child will be interested in, to get more in depth of the subjects.
Sign us up! It may be the adorable art work, the chance to use her beloved colored pencils, or the awe when she considers that atoms are integral to the world around her, but we are fans of this book. Timberdoodle, we love you!
