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.

What Topics are Covered in Book 2?
Exploring the Building Blocks of Science Book 2 Student Textbook has 22 chapters and introduces students to the basic tools used in chemistry, biology, physics, astronomy, and geology. Students learn about the microscope, how hammers and lenses are used to study rocks and minerals, and how telescopes and spacecraft help astronomers study the universe. Students also explore acids and bases, chemical reactions, protists, fungi, forces, mass, inertia, linear and curved motion, the geosphere and atmosphere, constellations, the solar system, stars, and much more.

Students begin open inquiry with suggested questions found in the Teacher’s Manual which also contains directions for guiding the experiments. The Laboratory Notebook contains 22 experiments that explore topics covered in the Student Text. Some experiments include: testing acids and bases, observing protists with a microscope, exploring linear and curved motion, using hammers for geology, modeling Earth's layers, building a telescope, tracking constellations, and much more. The books have 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.

The Study Bundle includes three softcover books:
  • A full-color Student Textbook that your child reads to learn the building blocks of science
  • A Laboratory Notebook that guides your child through real data-driven, hands-on experiments
  • A Teacher’s Manual that contains information about how to set up the laboratory experiment and lists the materials needed
  • Plus the following digital products:
  • A Study Notebook that contains activities to help reinforce each lesson and provides a place for the student to record their ideas
