Building Blocks of Science 6 - 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 6?
Exploring the Building Blocks of Science Book 6 Student Textbook has 22 chapters and gives students an in-depth look at technology in science, including a snapshot of the chemistry laboratory and accompanying equipment, the biology laboratory and modern experimental methods, mathematics in physics, how technology is used to map earthquakes, modern telescopes, and how technology has advanced global collaborative projects.
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 making measurements in chemistry, exploring acids and bases, using a light microscope, preparing and using agar plates, applying physics to sports, calculating tangential speed, using satellite images to observe changes to Earth, making maps, using triangulation to measure distances, exploring cloud formation, using a star map, 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.
