Science in the Industrial Age Set
In the fifth title in the Berean Science series, your student will discover what Michael Faraday has to do with safe airline travel, use gumdrops to understand the chemistry mystery that Louis Pasteur first cracked, and experience the Second Law of Thermodynamics by making ice cream.
Science in the Industrial Age discusses scientific advances, discoveries, inventions, and even errors from the early 1800s to the early 1900s. Students will see how the beliefs of the scientists influenced their interpretations of scientific data, preparing students to live in an opinionated and volatile scientific age in which the dominant worldview of many scientists no longer includes God.
The Science in the Industrial Age Set includes the text as well as the slim helps & hints book. Helps & Hints for Science in the Industrial Age contains answers for the review exercises in the text, as well as hints to make checking, correcting, and explaining the students’ work easier. And while the author suggests that testing is unnecessary for most families, he includes tests and test solutions for families who do find it beneficial. See our optional lab kit here.
New to Timberdoodle, Berean Science offers students an opportunity to study science through the lens of history. Using a narrative dialogue and a Christian worldview, Berean Science teaches science chronologically, so there are vast and varied science topics in each volume. Fairly bursting with experiments - every lesson has some sort of activity - Berean Science’s strong focus on this hands-on component makes it an ideal program for the wigglers in your household.
The hardcover textbooks have lots of full-color illustrations and the lesson are concise, but complete, distilling down to the core of what your child needs to know. Activities, all color-coded and easy to find quickly, often involve inexpensive household items, and are the gateway to the exploration of each scientific concept. Lesson material is often just a page or two following each activity, perfect for any child that struggles to sit and pay attention. And because each lesson concludes with questions or additional activities for "younger," "older," and "oldest" students, Berean Science lends itself well to multi-grade homes that prefer to use just one science curriculum for the entire family. Lessons are taught directly from the text, so parents and students share the same book.
Sprinkled throughout the text are optional "challenge" lessons that you are free to skip if time is an issue. Each book has a helpful section in the front that tells you all the materials you will need, broken down per chapter, for doing the experiments. 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. Berean Science is an excellent way to teach science, and a welcomed addition to the Timberdoodle kits.

review by Living Life: Hour By Hour
”We really enjoyed learning about the scientists, some I didn't remember ever learning about in school. Ultimately the most fun was the experiments!”Read the Review
Confession - I hate science. But love the chronological order of this and the questions and assignments are not overwhelming. Jump-started this because the grandkids are all here this summer; the seventh grader is doing the experiments for me (yes, she will be rewarded!). Personally I do not find it critical to do them at the same time as the reading - we will sometimes do two or three experiments in a day. The reading is interesting although names of the scientists are difficult to remember!
This brings since to life. My daughter is enjoying it
This book has a lot of information. Unfortunately, we don't always have the supplies to do the experiments.
Good news! Our customers asked, and we have finally found a lab kit we can make available to you! You can find out details here: https://timberdoodle.com/products/lab-kit-for-science-in-the-industrial-age
I hope this helps!

My daughter and I love this text!! I enjoy the short time it takes to lesson plan and we both really enjoy the experiments to reinforce the lessons.
