Building Blocks of Science 5 - Laboratory Notebook
The Building Blocks Laboratory Notebook includes the 5 core science subjects (chemistry, biology, physics, geology, and astronomy) integrated into one softcover notebook.
The Laboratory Notebook is meant to accompany the Building Blocks Student Textbook and Building Blocks Teacher’s Manual for one year of study.
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 5?
Exploring the Building Blocks of Science Book 5 Student Textbook has 22 chapters and gives students an in-depth look at the atomic model and periodic table, chemical bonding, how to define living organisms, biological cells, viruses, bacteria, force, energy, and work, plate tectonics, volcanoes and earthquakes, Earth's layers, the Moon and the Sun, terrestrial and Jovian planets, and much more.
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 modeling molecules, identifying chemical reactions, observing the effects of enzymes on starch, preparing agar plates and testing for bacteria, exploring gravitational potential energy, understanding the concept of work, observing the environment, testing minerals, modeling plate tectonics, observing constellations, modeling lunar and solar eclipses, and much 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.
