Science in the Scientific Revolution Set
With Science in the Scientific Revolution, your student will discover what a bishop’s hat has to do with the heart’s mitral valve, flip a coin before reading Pascal’s wager, count candies to learn about population estimates, and accelerate a wagon of books to experience the importance of seat belts.
The third book in the Berean Science series, Science in the Scientific Revolution covers scientific developments from 1543 to the end of the 1600s. Students will see that most of the great natural philosophers of this time were Christians who studied the world to learn more about the God who invented it.
The Science in the Scientific Revolution Set includes the text as well as the slim helps & hints book. Helps & Hints for Science in the Scientific Revolution 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.

This science curriculum is easy to use and pretty much open and go. I would ABSOLUTELY recommend buying the science experiment kit with it. We did not buy the kit and there were some experiments that we weren't able to do because I didn't have the items on hand. I like that every lesson has an experiment, but if we aren't able to get the experiment done, the chapter has a good recap. The chapters are short and easy to read.
We like the science, but it’s a bit hard to keep my daughters attention to retain the information. I think it’s a bit higher level for 3rd grader
We enjoy that the Berean Science set places scientific discoveries in a timeline so that our children can get a full picture. The experiments are easy but comprehensive, and it covers a great deal of information. Your kids will learn to take notes, if they haven't already. Still we find these curriculums great fun and love science in our house!
We really like this book it has a lot of really good information. We really enjoy all we learn with this book and I would highly recommend it. The only downfall is how much reading there is. There is was to much reading for MTV 3rd grader to do on her own so I end up doing a lot of the reading to her and it is just a lot while trying to homeschooled my other child as well
It kills me to not give this book a high score... it is a beautifully written, gorgeously illustrated, fascinating textbook. The student workbook is also easy to use. I understand that the basic premise of this multi volume set, organized chronologically, is that it can be used for students between first and sixth grade, and different aged children are held to different standards of understanding. We have completed the first fifteen lessons, having done many of the experiments. This is also our first year homeschooling. BUT - the scope of this book, at least for our extremely bright third grader - is just a bit ridiculous. Knowledge of retrograde motion, parallax, hyaline cartilage, and bile ducts at this age? It got a little overwhelming and we found we needed to supplement with library books and videos, or just to paraphrase the materials ourselves. Again, it’s a great resource, one we will keep for future use, but it’s kind of nuts for an 8-year old. We decided to throw the towel in on this one and are searching for a different science curriculum. For an older student it would still be a solid option, but it’s not for us.
